“Trusting” - 17.10.2020 - Writing

I'm trusting the yearning to be in this skin.
I'm trusting the call to be present in the body.
This body is a gift to be unwrapped
A body of experiences
A body of sensations
A body of memories
Of pain
Of anger
Of beauty
Of beyond
More than a body.
More than the story about the body.
Maybe I'm just the keeper
Of this scared space.
The observer within this holy place.
A conduit for me to begin again.
Maybe it isn't just a body.
Maybe it's a way
Maybe it's a bridge to the other side.
Even if it is not.
Even if there was no other side.
I want to feel safe in the skin I'm in.

“Immersing in emergence” 2019. Yvette Hess.

It's an old picture of the same feeling. Next cycle, here I go.

I decided to share more of my social media writing on my blog. The original post can be found on my Instagram account here.
