At the core
Regardless of what you do or you don’t
What you say or keep to yourself
What happens or what never occurs
In spite of what ever anyone does
Or any outcome or event
There is you.
In the center.
(I finally understand)
And nothing you do or anyone else does
Will ever change that .
So you might just as well be at peace.
Since whether you are or aren’t won’t change the essential you.
You know, that being in the center?
(this is a poem from my brother Jim Grady)
I love this poem because he sent it to me when I was in the very deepest part of my depression, and it gave me this insight that- oh yeah… no matter what happens to me – inside I am still me, in the center- perfect (as the universe made me) and that peace is a choice. The Poem has brought up lots of discussion for me, so if you want to join in the conversation – please do. What do you think he meant by this?
