The Healing Waterfall

Acceptance transforms,
inner eye opens,
realizations are instant.
I am sitting in a meadow
that is high up in the mountains.

Silent for a while,
I get used to the freedom.
I welcome the open space.
I am calm.
I settle in.

Discomfort still exists.
There are sensations in the body.
But I have time, endless time,
and so I open:
I allow.

Suddenly the rain,
falling rain, pouring rain
creates a waterfall,
and so I open.

I get up, walk over,
stand for a moment,
and then I sit underneath the soothing
pure divine flow.

My pain turns to red, then to black, then to brown,
and then to gray:
all my discomfort washes out of me
in a free-flowing cleansing fall.

Down the mountain,
over the cliff,
into the mist,
it disappears.
Into the shadows it disappears,
into the dark and empty void.

Washing away, I allow.
Letting it go, I release.
I cleanse my system.
I am healing.
Releasing it all:
I am free.

Emotions, thoughts, and feelings, stirring;
all releasing: letting go.
Suddenly disorientation and confusion overwhelm.
I question why.
I question what.

The old way is going.
Fading and releasing, fully releasing,
it is going, truly going.
Then suddenly it is gone.
All gone.

The deepest part of me is free,
free to be,
and so I honor
this new space.

It is freedom:
very strange:
I embrace the new.

Expansion creates new choices,
new ways outside the box.
No longer restricted,
I open deeper.
I accept me.

I breathe easier.

I am free.
