are you that free?
by miriam louisa
The reach of your compassion reveals the degree of your wideawakeness
the authenticity of your unconditional freedom
is the reach of your compassion.
Compassion begins at home. Begins here.
Are you free to feel the immeasurable depth of your unspeakable pain?
to melt into its fear-full embrace without withdrawal?
to dive deeper yet, without coming up for air
without gasping or grasping for causes, meanings, healing?
to arrive at the altar of the world’s pain;
to light your small candle there amongst the galaxy of flickering lights
and on that sacred clay, to drop to your knees and whisper the holy halleluiah?
Are you that free?
