FABULOUS VIDEO - A MUST SEE!!!
Compassion by Charles Eisenstein
I can hear her screams again
Her tormented soul
Yearning to let the rage and fury
Have full voice
I hold her close to my heart
Quietening her need
To suppress it all once again
Quietly giving her permission
To discharge it all
To fully express
What she’s held down for decades
Looks me in the eye
And pushes it down even more
Determined not to feel IT
Determined not to remember.
The chocolate, the ice-cream
Anything she can get her hands on
To silence the raging beast within
Feed the beast
Quietens the beast
Killing myself is not allowed
This voice as I hold her
It quietens here
And she once again disappears
Into the nothingness of voicelessness.
Doing what she always does
Pushing it down
Of the intensity
There is freedom in feeling
There is freedom in remembering
There is freedom in allowing the rage to rage
There is freedom in stopping the beast from killing me
There is freedom in forgiving myself
There is freedom in forgiving others.
I am here
I will support you
I will protect you
I will love you.
You and I are worthy of living
You and I are loved and lovable
You and I truly matter
You and I are enough
I LOVE YOU and I LOVE ME.
That is the end.

Forget FOMO - embrace JOMO
JOMO (the Joy Of Missing Out) is a very welcome new conscious living trend and the exact opposite of the woeful,
soul-crushing ethos of FOMO (the Fear Of Missing Out).
