Hello Divine I Am Hello

I slept all day yesterday

Feeling exhausted and listless

On the edge of sickness

Stopped fighting to surrendering

Started with the wondering

If this is it and I’ve got it

What am I going to say?

Where did I get it and who did I give it to?

It’s so easy to fall into

The abyss of despair

riding the fear swirling in the

sea of unconsciousness.

Memories point fingers

Chomping on my arms and pulling me in

And I remember I have a choice

I don’t have to give in.

My old surrender looked like bread with butter

And a tantrum inducing panic that curled me up.

My old surrender was wrapped in a candy bar

over stuffed stomach to the pain of distraction

Hello Divine I am Hello

I look down into my tender hands

Carrying my heart with deep respect

Hello Divine I Am Hello

Surrender looks like a good movie

As I’m cuddled in a blanket with a cup of tea.

Surrender looks like a library book

Surrender feels the sunshine sitting on the deck.

This audience of fear

That clamors for my attention

Is singing its familiar song

clapping wild with insistence

I recognize the voices, the images

Are familiar; I recognize the dark hole

And choose not to accept for I am

Worth fighting for in my surrender

Hello Divine I Am Hello

(The phrase “Hello Divine I Am Hello” is from Matt Kahn’s Where Healing & Realization Meet)

I Am Enough — A Poem about Worthiness

By Jen Williamson

There is a wholeness that’s already mine.

It’s already ours.

I am not just the seed,

I am the rain that waters the flower.

It’s a reality that’s already there,

That I am enough.

I take on faith

That wholeness is already mine,

That I need do nothing to deserve,

That my worthiness is based only on my being.

I am wise enough to let go,

And I am strong enough to remember the truth

Of who I really am.

I can encounter the world

In such a way

That I remember who I am.

I am the rest inside the unrest.

I am the depth of the sky,

And the light piercing the sea.

I am the crest of a wave.

All that I need to be,

I am.

There is no problem to solve in this moment.

There is no plan to make,

No failure to be feared,

No other place to be.

This moment is enough.

This place is enough.

This imperfection is enough.

I am patient enough for my life to unfold in divine timing.

I feel the fullness of my life in this moment.

I feel the richness of my life in this space.

I am loved beyond thought,

And I have nothing to prove.

There is no one to impress.

I receive the message

That being is enough.

I am wise enough to see magic through a child’s eyes.

I am resilient enough to see past the pain.

I am kind enough to realize

That my worth has been with me

This whole time.

Beyond the shadows

That I have created,

The message remains:

I am the same.

I have always been enough,

Simply by being here.

Simply by being.
