From the Universe with Love

Poems that have flowed through me in meditation

The Yang Within Her


by Sarit Gafan ©May 2020


With poise

She strides by my side

Head held high

Even when mine is



And these judgements

She asks

With outstretched claws

What would you have me do with them?


And as I am still learning

I simply say

Leave them be


Leave them be?

To burn a hole in your heart?

To weigh you down on your path

And steer you with


My feet stop.

Her paws…pause



I say,


Shall I rip them to invisible shreds?

That is what one does with untruth


I smile and breathe in an infusion of peace

Feeling her inner smile open like a flower

As her eyes close and her head bows gently

Her guard now at ease

Yes, she breathes, yes


And this self-doubt

What would you have me do with it?


Leave it be, it is of no consequence


The air vanishes

She halts

Her eyes blazing raw power

Yet I feel only love and strength from her


She digs deeps inside her

Transmuting her fire into a light

That will heal not burn


Every self-doubting thought

Is an insult to your divinity

And leads you down a path of suffering


That is NOT why you are here

And I am NOT here to walk by your side and watch you lose yourself

I am here to remind you

Every day


Of your magnificent light

Until YOU

Remind ME


She knows the tears in my eyes

And the tears in my heart

The battle scars

And lays down beneath a tree

Her heart inviting me to take shelter

In the fortress of her understanding


I curl up beside her

The compassionate lioness

Soothing her infant warrior

Resting my head on her heart


We breathe as one

In the tonic silence

My strength breaking out of its longsuffering prison



She whispers



Then I know

That she is the one

The one standing guard over my beautiful heart

Until the day it transforms

Into pure Divine Light

I am. I am Sarit.

I am no longer my bank balance

I am no longer my job 

I am no longer the thoughts in my head, the feelings in my heart, nor the blah blah blah

I am. I am Sarit. And THIS Sarit is more than ALL of that, and I always have been

I am more than the ‘things’ and ‘stuff’ that I have and do not have, and I am more than the books on my shelf, especially the ones that I haven’t read

I am more than the pieces of paper that say “I did this”

And I am more than the doors that they open and do not open

I am more than the academic demons that I have now transmuted into a 2:1!

I have a PhD in Saritology!

I am more than my tears

and the pain that evoked them

I am not defined by the opinions or behaviour of others

I am more than the words I say and the actions I take.

I am more than the imprint I make on the world, the energy I bring and the song that I sing.

I am more than all the hugs I’ve given. And that’s a lotta hugs.


Love of myself. Love of you. Love of the wind, the trees, the mountains, the animals, the crystals. The whole WORLD!

But I am even more than that.  Because I am energy. And every day I grow.

And every day I project more love and more peace and more harmony.

And more light

And you can’t catch light in a net. Or put it on a wall. Or give it a certificate. Or take it out of a cash machine

I am a Divine force to be reckoned with and I am full of Gratitude

I am no longer my history of ‘Not good enough’, of procrastination and silent judges

I am no longer interested in holding myself back, consciously or unconsciously, because I am a Compassionate Lioness

The measure of a person is not how they stand in times of challenge – I beg to differ

I CANNOT be measured because I AM PRICELESS

And so are you!

About Me

I'm a Divine soul in a human body, just like you. I've struggled with life's ups and downs since my teens and have felt like I didn't belong here. I spent much of my 20s and 30s searching for a single key to life, and found to my surprise and delight that, in fact, everyone has their own set of keys! While there may not be a single secret upon which to focus your energy, there is a colossal treasury of wisdom to suit all souls. I have taken the time to get to know myself and find out what's good for me, but the question is, do you know what's good for YOU?
