I wrote this poem under the Wesak Full Moon in Costa Rica in 2015. The picture shared, is from that night. Wesak celebrates the birth of Buddah, but more importantly, it is a time to welcome newness and send LOVE and blessings to Mother earth.
This full moon is an amazing time to look inward and ask yourself, what do I have to share outwardly with others? This can be very small, and little things, it does not need to be a grand gesture. How can I bring more kindness into my day? How can I make my day more about others and less about me? Ironically, even though most of us are still sheltering in place at home, as a society, we are shifting from a me first society to one of how can I help you? And this is amazing to see. With small changed In time many will organically move into a life of service.
If you feel depleted, and are struggling right now, be kind to yourself. I invite you to look inward and ask yourself what do I need to give to myself to honor what I need. What do I need to do to feel whole and my best in each moment.
Open your soul
Expose your true self to the world
The parts you keep locked away
Hidden in the box you call your heart
You are the holder of the key
Unlock it as you wish,
Unleashing yourself to the world
So much to share that so very few see
Open your heart
Share your story
No holding back the details
No room for being afraid
Shining brightly the world is yours
Energy flows, support grows
People, experiences and things drawn to you
Honesty is admirable, respected
An equal you contribute to all things
Without ego and without judgement
The world is yours to dance in
Go dance without fear – do it
Open your heart , Open your soul
And the world will be yours
What are you waiting for?
