Clear the table.
So I can sit with myself.
Eye to eye and heart to heart.
Make me still and silent.
So I can hear myself again.
Unburden me of the weight created by a lack of discernment.
Help me lay down what I’ve picked up that does not belong to me.
Let me build a fire.
Let me burn down the doubts and misconceived ideas, turn them to smoke.
Offering up who I could have been, who I should have been.
For who I really am.
Stop me from searching outside of myself.
Point my compass inward
Toward the folded helix of my heart.
Let me take direction from the wisdom layered within those tender tissues.
Create a quiet landscape in my mind. Smooth it out.
Illuminate the darkness with a reflection of truth.
Like a full moon reflecting the light of the sun.
Like a dark lake reflecting the light of the moon.
Make me like moon light.
Devoted to the steady reflection of a celestial truth.
Give me the courage to issue an arsenal of “No”s
Let them march from my mouth like little revolutionaries.
Defending my energy.
Clearing the way.
So I can once again recognize the “Yes” as it thunders forth from my depths.
That subtle roar of applause, my cells resounding in delight.
So that “Yes” bursts forth only in the company of that truthful trinity:
resonance, desire, intention.
So that “Yes” once again becomes a jubilation. A celebration. A creation.
A seed. A bud. A bloom. A blossoming. Intention in action.
And when I forget and feel confused or inundated or wayward,
help me hush up the outer world, show me how to spiral inward.
Remind me that an answer, an affirmation, an approval is not something to be fielded from
outside of me, but rather, something that arises naturally from within me.
I listen well.
