The Scared Middle


Don't hold on.

Don't let go.

Stay right in the middle.

 

When sorrow visits.

When melancholy erupts.

When loneliness and disappointment burn.

 

Stay right in the middle.

Don't hold on.

Don't let go.

 

The middle is the place

where alchemy happens.

 

The middle is the place

where you can saturate your "uninvited guest"

with a loving awareness,

with a deep, generous breath,

with slowness,

with understanding.

 

Not holding on,

not letting go,

just being fully present 

to 'what is'.

 

In this soft, raging fire of presence,

in this sacred middle place called Now,

even your deepest pain

can transmute.

 

So don't hold on.

Don't let go.

 

Just breathe into the Mystery.

 

~ Jeff Foster
