Removing the armor…

Snarling, disagreeable, bristling don’t touch me…

But what’s underneath? What if we hold still long enough? Standing, perhaps sideways, so as not to confront and just wait…is there a softening?

Has all this rushing about been to merely keep the soft, tender center protected? Is the busyness a front – an armor?

Yeah… breathe… there it is… mmm, the crack, the chink in the armor, maybe eyes welling up a bit? Its ok… nothing to fix, nothing to do right now… another breath and we get a little softer, maybe a bit curious now?

Coming out of the shadows the soul is indeed shy as Parker Palmer once said…we all want to be seen and heard. Seen & heard…That makes you human, makes me human – to be a part of! I see you…
