each individual sequestered to their dark corner,
tucked away in a protecting blanket in absence of light,
guarding, cloaked in sheets of frigid rain,
choking to death on thick sooty claustrophobic self-pity,
eyes fill with glimpses of, then turn away from the end.
what a bummer…hahahaha
i wrote this today during a meeting. i used to feel this way. i strongly identify with the passage because i firmly know its other side.
i am blessed that i have so much to give. i can give an ear, a smile, time, hugs and compassion. i practice and strive to eradicate my own selfish self-seeking motives on a daily basis. fuck what i want. screw what i think is going to happen. smash to pieces my small-minded self-seeking manipulative agendas. destroy the sad covetous ways of the ego. those around and about me teach me how to enlarge my spiritual life that in turn gives me the ability to perform selfless service. i get to “stay out-of-the-way” today. AAAAHHHHHHHhhhhh, the great removal of self.
there is always enough time, love and compassion, charity and goodwill.
there always will be.
