Beware of words that come from
That is to say, those not rightly trained
People believe others in visible roles:
Commentators, politicians, actors, presidents.
Even pastors may falsely portray
The world at large.
Awake to your own wisdom.
Tune in to your own honest heart and bones.
Give yourself time, space, and
Quiet enough to listen
And trust all-knowing
Patience is required for all acts
Of brilliant kindness.
Many think that kindness
Is made on prompting or
Offered on occasion
In between actions real and true.
Understand that kindness
Must become the norm of behavior
And a practice of great skill,
Devotion and patience
With the purpose of, not allowing others to control you,
But enabling others to feel
Seen, heard, understood and
Understand that reconciliation
Is important for the adjudication
Of human beings.
Connections bring peace.
Separation breeds fear, distrust
Allow yourself to meet and know
People outside your normal sphere.
Allow yourself to jump into uncomfortable
Circumstances and situations.
Reach out with a smile
Where no smile has ever been.
Open your hand instead of closing it.
Open your eyes instead of closing them.
Go out of your way
And see where you end up.
Given that people assume that
Those near them are precious
And those a world away
Understand that until you see
All human life as precious,
No peace will come to this planet.
Patience is required for those who,
For many reasons,
Live in fear.
Fear is the great paralyzer.
Fear is the great isolater.
Fear is the great separater.
Know that fear is dissolved
Radiate important truth:
Love is all you are.
