It’s not their fault completely.
They don’t know what they don’t know.
But that doesn’t change the hurt you feel,
Or heal the wounds you don’t let show.
If you’re closing your eyes on a painful day,
Reeling from someone’s thoughtless acts,
You can find relief and heal your wounds,
As you allow yourself to relax.
The first step is to clear your mind,
To soothe it into silence.
Allow your body to unwind as well,
Prepare yourself for your own guidance.
For as much as others’ actions can sting,
And as much as you may long to sting back.
You know that’s not the answer,
Nothing good comes from going on the attack.
Instead, search your heart for forgiveness,
And all the compassion you can muster.
For those who lash out at others,
Usually hide pain in their bluster.
Take a breath and remember who YOU are, a kind spirit inside and out.
Exhale that breathe and release your hurt, your pain, your doubt.
We all have a path we need to walk,
And the route is not always of our choosing.
But the way we travel belongs to us,
A reminder that sometimes we win by losing.
If we lose our anger along the way,
If we lose our fear and worry,
We end up stronger, better selves,
And life’s lines become less blurry.
We rarely know another’s truth,
The reason one lashes out.
And even if we learn the story,
It’s not ours to speak about.
Instead, we must take what we see,
And meld it with what we know.
We make sense of pain from the inside out,
Finding our reward in how much we grow.
Inhale that sweet forgiveness, the mercy you show yourself and others.
Exhale the comfort of your humanity, send it to your sisters and brothers.
Imagine the power of this small step,
The transformation it might cause.
Then imagine multitudes doing the same,
The wave of energy that it draws.
Our intentions can turn bad to good,
Can turn suffering into peace.
When we keep ourselves from striking back,
Our vibration will increase.
Though it may seem you’re often on your own,
That fear is just a perception.
In fact, you’re linked to everything,
You belong without exception.
To understand this bond is key,
Knowledge that others can miss.
But now that you know what you know,
There’s nothing keeping you from bliss.
It’s no secret pain is a lesson,
An arrow pointing to what we must face.
And when others turn those arrows on you,
The very best response is grace.
In this way, you can teach them,
As you teach yourself.
Your gift to you is a gift to them,
Even more powerful in its stealth.
While there’s no promise tomorrow will be easy,
No assurance that others will be kind.
You’ll step into your day with new confidence,
Knowing your energies are aligned.
It matters less what comes at you,
Than how you choose to react.
So if you remember that love always wins,
You can be mindful of your impact.
It’s such an important lesson,
To use your powers for good,
To sidestep all of the ugliness,
And to reach out to the misunderstood.
For they know not what they do to you,
They don’t let themselves zoom in.
So you must be the instrument,
Heeding the voice within.
Though it’s always important to protect yourself,
And keep the malice at bay.
Knowing the safety your awareness ensures,
Is what makes you truly okay.
