Love notes to a broken

LOVE NOTES TO A BROKEN OPEN SELF

Becca Weinstein
Boothbay, Maine

my heart breaks open
burning down
in the fires of surrender
what will emerge from the ashes
remains to be seen

heart breaks, being awaken
lightness of being come forth
heart breaks, being awaken
lightness of being, come forth

Love the hurt
Love the disturbance
I welcome you into my experience
Bringing forth Truth
Into form beyond the self
Breaking down the limitations
Allowing Being to breathe fully
the breath that It Is

Breathe.
Allow.
Notice.
Rest in that.
Surrender.

Resist not. Notice all.
Including resistance
To What Is
To what yearns and struggles to be birthed
into Awareness
Breaking through the hard jagged edges of the
defended heart and hardened self
Protecting against what will allow it to rest in true safety

Breathe.
Allow.
Notice.
Rest in that.
Surrender.

Welcome the pain. The heartbreak. The not-knowing.
Lightness come and balance out the burden
of knowing there is something beyond the self,
accessing the present, releasing the past, not fearing the future.

heart broken open, being awakens
lightness of being comes forth
heart broken open, being awakens
lightness of being comes forth

Love.
