The Wisdom of the Phoenix

When the pain comes
Let it bring you to your knees
Offer no resistance
Let it rage through you like a hurricane
Let your body go limp
And your mind go still
Attach no ‘story’ to this unfolding
Just let it be what it is
Raw, visceral pain
Remain in sweet surrender
As this Phoenix process unfolds
Consuming and destroying
All in you that has to die
Trust that nothing has been lost
But that which had to go
Bask in the stillness
As you breathe out the old
Inhale the new
Witness the majestic unfurling
As the Phoenix lifts its mighty wings
And slowly rises from the ashes
The miracle of life reborn
