My body is a temple.
It is a source of joy,
Just as a source of pain.
My body is to never be a source of shame.
The tension within is divine
It is a path to joy, as well a warning sign.
The tension only clears
If I can cross that line.
Is it safe to let down my guard?
Will my brain give me that regard?
Will automatic systems yield…
Can past assumptions drop their shield?
I choose harmony between the two
Once achieved, there is much more I can do.
But to achieve it, there is still much I must go through.
****Certain parts of this mantra are more positive while I feel others hit the reality head-on. I plan to focus on the positive portions when needed and return to all other stanzas to honor and respect what I may feel.in any given moment.
