I am not my thoughts.
I am not my feelings.
I am not the varied roles I take on in this life of mine.
I am not my experiences.
I am not my circumstances.
I am not my work.
I am not my strengths, my weaknesses, my hopes, my losses, my belongings, my gender, my beliefs, my friends, my heritage, my desires, or my dreams.
And yet, I am.
I am myself, at any given moment.
I am myself, doing my best, with the internal and external resources I have access to in this moment.
And in the next.
And in all the moments past, and in those to come.
Everything around me can change
- does change
- is changing.
Nothing is certain, nothing guaranteed.
But here, in my centre, I remain.
Here, in my heart, I am constant.
Here, in this knowing, I am safe.
Here, beyond the rest, yet in amongst it all, I can allow things to be exactly as they are.
I can trust without the need to understand.
I can be.
