Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things

Good morning friends! I hope your all staying safe inside your homes. We are diligently working to keep shining our lights and our love during the darkest times.

Yesterday I started my yoga class with this poem and I must admit that it found me, I didn’t necessarily find it.

It’s an absolutely perfect poem for where we are right this very minute. And for those of us who haven’t found our kindness yet, I’m guessing that your future hasn’t quite dissolved enough yet.

Before you know what kindness really is you must lose things. (There’s not a single one of us that haven’t lost something this week)

Feel the future dissolve in a moment like salt in a weakened broth. (What you had planned no longer exists and the sooner we all accept this the faster we can begin to heal)

What you held in your hand, what you counted and carefully saved (it doesn’t matter how much you planned for your future because you are simply not in control and the sooner you relinquish your own selfish desires the sooner you’ll move forward)

All this must go so you know how desolate the landscape can be between the regions of kindness (you will be humbled eventually but not until you lose it all will you truly understand your purpose here is much larger then your ego)

I’m just going to leave that right there and let you chew on that for a little bit.

You are not alone

💜 Tay Tay
