The Honest Radical

Afraid to tap in,
     To traverse other realms

Afraid of what the path, the medicine,
     the ascension,
          will require of me.

I will be different.  I will be changed.
How much do I want to change?
What will I have to let go of?
How do I let go, as I build bond with my growing family?
How do we all ascend?

I’m afraid.

Afraid of leaving my body.
Of Darkness.
Of working with forces I do not understand.
     & the consequences of said work…

Afraid of being stuck in between realms.
     Who’s gonna bring me back?
     What anchors me?

Afraid of getting lost.
Afraid of the TRUE POWER that I might manifest…
     What responsibilities come with it?

AM I AFRAID OF MY OWN LIBERATION?!

I’d like to think I’m about that life...
     
but do I fear the transformation
          that true freedom brings?

                         WHY?

Loneliness?
Isolation?
Unattachment?

What if what matters to me now, no longer matters?
What parts of my existing ego will need to die?

"Let's Get Free" is all the work,
the never ending work, 
of loving yourself into the fires that mold you.
