go gentle into the cave of your innermost self ... #remindertoself

go gentle into the cave of your innermost self,
be forgiving of your sometimes (sometimes often) slow, tentative pace,
love yourself enough to say,
"thank you, ME, for opening
yourself - myself - to the
possibility of sacred beauty
pulsing ever so slightly
underneath your - my many veils"

"Emotional armor is not easy to shed, nor should it be. It has formed for a reason- as a requirement for certain responsibilities, as a conditioned response to real circumstances, as a defense against unbearable feelings. It has served an essential purpose. It has saved lives. Yet it can be softened over time. It can melt into the tendernest at its core. It can reveal the light at its source. But never rush it, never push up against it, never demand it to drop its guard before its time. Because it knows something you don't. In a still frightening world, armor is no less valid than vulnerability. Let it shed at its own unique pace." - Jeff Brown | Facebook Page
