I Am Willing

To the voice of doubt in my mind:

I am willing.

To the anger in my soul:

I am willing.

To the sadness in my eyes:

I am willing.

To the confusion in my heart:

I am willing.

To the paradoxes in my consciousness:

I am willing.

To the pain in my bones:

I am willing.

To the fatigue in my being:

I am willing.


I am willing to accept what has come my way and is coming; for accepting isn’t resignation to the forces that often feel stronger than the entirety of my being. No.

Accepting in this regard is an acknowledgement of presence; it’s an acceptance of the reality proposed by these thoughts, these feelings, these beliefs, as possibly true… or possibly not.

But I am willing.

I am willing to walk down the road; for this is the way to to my enlightenment.
