Is It Safe…?

A couple of weeks ago I felt an impulse to write an article on safety. I started with some of the more “traditional” phrases, such safety is a feeling of well being, it’s an absence of danger or threat, usually accompanied by feelings of peace, possibly fulfillment, feeling loved, taken care of and included.

As I sat with this exploration for a longer period of time, an outpouring of questions came forward. All of them started with “IS IT SAFE….?”. I put some of them together and I hope these words can be felt in you as well.

Is it safe to TRUST
a man
a stranger

Is it safe to be HERE
in my body
in my heart
in my soul

Is it safe to LET GO?
of the known
through breath
into mystery

Is it safe to break the SILENCE?
with a stoke of a pen
to see all of it
to hear the full story

Is it safe to SOFTEN?
to cry
to melt
to unguard

It is safe to RELAX?
into my skin
to be known
for who I am

Part 2

with flaws
imperfectly perfect
divinely human
embodied woman
in flesh
with blood flowing through my veins
free spirited and wild
living a life that belongs to ME.
