A New Year Healing

Here she sits

On the start of a brand new year

Just a little work in progress

Both a small part of the universe and all of the universe

Wishing for a peaceful loving heart

Stuck sometimes in the clinging and longing

For more, more, more, more

The list spins around in her mind

More friends, money, space, belongings, love

As loneliness and heartache creep in

She must know the only way out is in and through

Breathe, observe, feel

Connect deeply to the heart and gratitude

Mourn the heartache of loss and attachment or aversion

The human condition

And walk closer to the shining bright light

Of abundant and eternal love

Walk into that light of love

Reflect that light out toward others

Share the heart space more deeply

Than ever before.
