Living from the seat of wisdom.

Dear Soul,

You will be misunderstood. You will be judged. You will be imperfect. You will be human.

Remember, you are not who you were when you were young. You see life now through more experienced eyes. Your experience is unique to you….your circumstances, your years, your soul…. but is also universally human. We all are becoming.

Don’t make the mistake of trying to be seen through eyes that cannot see from where they stand. You may have once stood where they are, too. Simply love them for that. There is no need to move to their perspective to make yourself look better in their eyes. Let them grow; let them Be.

Let yourself grow too. Wisdom is never hubris. Be unafraid to change. If you stop changing, you wither and die

Trust in your goodness. Root yourself there and blossom into a ripeness that spreads seeds even as it is fading, for this is what it means to grow old. Some may see only the withering stem , but you know the secret, that ripening means fruit.

See through those eyes, if you will. Eyes that have gathered much light and now can radiate without dazzling, without words, without need.

At the end of the day, lie down with grace, let your life be a seedbed of nurture, if only for one tiny seed. Be warmth. Be shelter. Be hope.
