Don’t get comfortable
Because once you do
Something will happen
to open you from heart to spleen.
Open you like the cracking separation of a fault line
leaving you raw, exposed, and changed forever
Don’t resist –
Lean into it like you would lean in for a passionate kiss.
Collapse inside and hang on for the ride
Because who you were will never be again
And the unveiling will be magnificent.
