The little one inside shows me his full repertoire: morphing effortlessly from the wild fury of the great beast, to the shivering boy, curled up in fear; and then deeper: to the worthless loser, the freak, the devil himself . . . And as I watch the characters take shape, I do not stand apart like some transcendent witness, no, I feel intimately the wildness, the red hot energy of it, the nausea of shame, the dark edge of hatred—it IS what I AM too! I bow to the one that wants to eradicate all pain forever, to the one that wants the secret formula to freedom, and appreciate the wondrous truth: that when the struggle to get 'there' lets go, 'here' is all I ever wanted. ...

I listen within, and am invited to see it: the most depraved, barbaric acts that the imagination can conceive of . . . there's murder, mutilation, apocalyptic destruction . . . my body feels on fire as I acknowledge the dregs of humanity . . . opening my heart wider, to include this too, to bring the light, so that nothing is left out, for there can be no split off parts to wholeness. ...

There is a deep internal apology . . . it comes from my head, offered to my heart . . . As a child I heard you calling me, but too soon, too soon. I wrestled myself free and ran far far away, to build my little empire of mind—to organise, control, to play out many roles: the clever one, the special one, the talented one; and try to suppress their unwanted counterparts: the boring one, the strange one, the faulty one . . . and in finding no place to rest I have returned home . . . wiser . . . responsible . . . and now I bow to you dear heart, the one that I have neglected so . . . I kneel before you and face your annihilating beauty . . . I am changed, I am ready . . . ready to appreciate your exquisite wonder, to offer you my hand, and dance with you beneath the moon and sun, as sacred lovers, as queen and king, and usher in, the new era of divine harmony. ...

I see an image in my mind of wild buffalo lying dead on the land, stripped of their hides and tongues and left to rot, and feel the healthy shame of my species; for our arrogant, self-centred raping of the planet and polluting of the air and waters; for abusing our fellow brothers and sisters for their skin colour, nationality, religion, gender—for anything that is perceived as somehow 'different' . . . which is all of course a reflection of our 'inner war'; of all that we cannot face in ourselves, and so split off from and project out onto the world, or try hard to avoid with excessive consumption. For deep down we all carry fear, sorrow, rage, guilt and despair—it comes from growing up in a distorting culture . . . AND when we courageously open to these energies, they become doorways into compassion, tenderness and true self-expression; into feeling empowered to stand up for authenticity in every moment and so bring real change; into lighting up the world with the loving openness that is our very nature . . . “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do” no longer applies. With consciousness comes responsibility, and now is the time for us all to take it. ...
