What is pain?
Pain that can return
again and again
and again – – –
that when not recognized
can make us insane!

Name the pain
Welcome the pain
Stay with the pain
name the emotion

Listen to its message
Objectively observe it
Whether mental
emotional or physical

Look inward again and again
and again – – –
There is no one or any thing
to blame
Just gather the ability
to take responsibility

Is the agony simply
trapped ecstasy?
The call to awaken from staticity

Be the flame of awareness
The centering light!

Its inner clean beam
Bringing clear insight
Bringing light into the dark night

It is in the nature of awareness to set things right!

Inwardly dance to the resonance of life
within and without
