Above all, Be True.
but filter with compassion.
If you are angry, don’t hide it,
be firm, but do not aim to hurt.
If you are loving, be gracious
but not overwhelming.
Don’t fall prey to hyperbole,
exaggeration and over-identification,
but don’t hold back, don’t diminish, don’t sell your own needs and feelings short.
Pause before you speak, breathe, take just a moment
and seek the heart of what matters for you.
Aim your words for precision and clarity, with elegant humility, with staunch roots and gentle understanding.
Your heart needs to share what is real and flowing through it’s chambers.
Honor this and you do yourself the greatest favor.
🙏🏼happy POETS day all you truth tellers, heart speakers🙏🏼
