You are tired, friend.
Your body aches to rest.
You have wanted to fall apart for so long.
To let go of your defences.
To be transparent and authentic.
Your cynicism has protected you.
Your fear has served you well.
Your dreams of enlightenment were beautiful dreams.
But there is no need to hold your ‘self’ together any longer.
Or simply stop pretending that you don’t know how.
The vastness will hold you.
Only illusions can disappear.
The deeper the heart breaks
The more love it can hold.
Don’t tell me you are not worthy.
Don’t tell me you are not made of stars.
– Jeff Foster
