From the Universe with Love
Poems that have flowed through me in meditation
I Am II
by Sarit Gafan
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.
I. AM. LOVE.
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!
