The mission,

our mission,

my mission,

is to bring light

into the darkness.

My mission is

to bring

my light

to this reality.

It is my mission

to light

the space

that I inhabit.

It’s NOT my mission

to bring my light

into the darkness

of another.

It’s NOT my mission,

to save anyone else

from their reality.

It’s NOT my job

to make sure

others do a level of

the light dark balance

that is comfortable for me.

We each are masters.

We each get to select

the balance of

the light and dark

that we choose to carry

in our lives.

Just as I get to select

the balance that works

for me.

I honor your path.

I honor my path.

I move my center

from my head,

from the shoulds,

the gotta’s,

the ought to’s

To - the ripples flowing out

To - the flow of:

I want this,

this feels great.

I move my head

from the drivers seat

to the back seat.

My heart is steering.

Life is in the fun flow

a joy ride.

In the back seat,

my head’s job

is to explain

why we went

where we went,

not determine it.

I move my center

from the poor me,

to the power me.

No one else can make me happy.

Only I can “save me”.


I can’t make anyone else

truly happy.

Only they can do that.

It’s not my job to save anyone.

It’s my job to move my center to joy.
