I found it was possible
to navigate through
the process of awakening into
our own true being.
I understood the courage to face fear
while at the same time
navigating through extreme challenges
in the physical world.
It wasn’t easy,
but it was possible.
It was possible to hold my ground
and find a way through.
It was possible to observe and understand
what was indeed happening
to resolve to hold a place of light,
to stand up or speak out when necessary,
and to offer love and forgiveness
where it seemed impossible to do so.
The necessary steps seemed
unclear at times —
only to become clearer
as they appeared.
It required trust, creativity
and the courage to try one more
one more time.
