For you were never unhealed



As you step into the transformative fires of love, 
the ancient burden you have placed on yourself 
to be someone other than you are 
is incinerated in the furnace of now.

Out of the ashes of this alchemical combustion, 
only your pure presence remains, 
erupting with its qualities of tenderness, warmth, 
and illuminating space.

Life is not waiting for you to 'heal,' to 'awaken,' 
or to complete some sort of mythical journey. 
For you were never unhealed. 
Your longing was only ever to remember this.
