When I’m upset, in pain, suffering, my mind is decidedly unhelpful
What with its desire to know and understand the mystery.
No, when news is bad and I’m bruised and battered, the place to go is my body.
She has no story, only sensation.
Directing mind to body, turn toward sensation
Soften it, even a little, around the edges
soothe it as is possible
and then allow it to be.
A New Year!
