Wild Geese

You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
for a hundred miles through the desert repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.

- Mary Oliver

Marble Surface

I can feel the difference after doing this work. The pain feels different in my body. It feels safe now when I think about it. I feel in control.

I’ve been working with therapists
since I was a teenager, and I have never had an experience like this. I can actually move
through my bullshit instead of sitting in it and having to deal with it over and over and over
again. I’m in a much different place than I was in even two months ago.

After so many attempts at counseling, I feel like I'm finally  getting to the root of the issues with Laura. I finally feel like I’m learning what I was trying to learn years ago. I’m getting to the depth of emotion that other therapists were unable to reach.
