The Unravelling

By Paul Galewitz.
 .
This is no joke, this seeing;
This seeing of patterns
of habits
of coverups
of selfishness
of internal compromises
of dishonesty
of not honoring inner truth
 .
We know about this shedding of ego-based existence,
But this morning I heard the phrase, “Say Goodbye,”
and felt its implications
 .
This is not a game to attain something
to accomplish a task of some kind
to achieve a spiritual milestone
or to look good in our own eyes
or the eyes of others.
This is an annihilation of who we think we are;
and to face that, well, humbling doesn’t even begin to say it
But it is humbling, and fearsome, and tender,
and in this we are most vulnerable;
As what we used to do to cover all that up
no longer serves.
 .
For those of us who have somehow found ourselves
in this process of unbecoming,
my deepest respect goes out to us all;
This is indeed not for the faint of heart.
We can tend to overlook the courage this takes,
but I will overlook it no longer.
 .
Tears are never far away,
melting my pretenses.
 .
Let the unraveling continue.
