Stop and Stand




Stop and stand

on your own patch of ground

- where your feet are


Really stand there

All of you - body and mind


From this place comes all your wisdom

Comes every answer that it is possible for you to know right now.


And when you see hurt, hold tight to your sword

and know that you cannot fix another

Instead, bear witness with the ground to that other body

All its found and unfound wisdom


And when you think

I want to take your suffering

Just stand.


And when you think

I want to take your pain

Just stand.


And if you really must do something

remember love and breathe it

and be it.


And let the seams of your soul

soften and melt away

so the boundary between me and you

is no longer there

and we are both love

and witness to love,

ground and standing feet.
