Close your eyes
Go to that wholly safe inner place
Remain safe and secure in your sanctum
There are moments between breaths
There are moments between heart-beats
Size the moments betwixt and between
Attune yourself to that innermost voice
That force of true self
Discover your inner light
The divine spirit.
Guiding inborn radiance
Bask in sunlight
Release all your pain, suffering, struggle
Find solace in compassionate safety
Fortify yourself for the journey ahead
Ground yourself in wisdom and faith
Know your inner worth, strength, love, kindness
Be you© REDCAT
Make your peace with the ego-materialistic modern society
Realize, living your true self will be seen
as the most dangerous thoughts of all
Even so, while pondering which approach to therapy they might grant me. They asked if I’d participate in group Compassion-focused therapy (CFT). And I said yes, so now I’ll do eight weeks of CFT.

I’ll be back to the subject of compassion and CFT later.
This weeks earthweal prompt has to do with finding hope. And even though my mind keeps spinning around the subject in all its forms, nothing coalesce and really takes shape. More work required obviously.
So instead I wrote about what helps me feel hope right now, which is meditation and breath-work.
