for any one who has taken a restorative class with me, you may feel at times like it sounds a bit like slam poetry night, well because it kinda is 😉 it always feels like that to me. I enjoy a rhythm and flow while i teach. So last night, i came across a beautiful poem that really struck me in the heart and embodies so much of what i teach, I wanted to share it with y’all.
Who you are
Who you are is so much more
than what you do. The essence,
shining through heart, soul, and
center, the bare and bold truth
of you does not lie in your
to-do list. You are not just
at the surface of your skin, not
just the impulse to arrange the
muscles of your face into a smile
or a frown, not just boundless
energy, or bone wearying fatigue.
Delve deeper. You are divinity;
the vast and open sky of Spirit.
It’s the light of God, the ember
at your core, the passion and the
presence, the timeless, deathless
essence of you that reaches out
and touches me. Who you are
transcends fear and turns
suffering into liberation.
Who you are is love.
friends, i hope you remember that you are so much more. more than what you do, what you know, what you feel. you are infinite and you are divine. i’ve been diving deep with this and i hope you do too!
