I am very familiar with judgment

Judgment of the self, other and back to the self

Judgment kills our spirit, our joy, our heart

and yes our creativity!

When we can release the judgments

The weapons go down

The walls come down

The battle ends

And the beauty of the heart emerges

Such love,

such peace

such joy.

But I know for me I need to stay alert

because it’s so easy for the battle to begin again.

So it’s back to the mat, back to the meditation cushion

And back into the beauty of the heart
