Until I am deceased and expired.
When beside myself, I experience being
Outside my body, although not.
Even though uncomfortable and apologetic,
Actually, cues/clues to something deeper:
Some historical hurt, some triggered complex;
Be curious, pay attention, offer attunement;
Explore inner genesis of response,
Accept all hypotheses as meaningful.
Goal: consciousness within the complex:
That I am here, present, and OK.
Even when I feel beside myself and outside
And annoyed and irritated and
Judgmental of myself and others.
Pause, count to 10, recite mantra.
I am in my body always--just a fact.
