Poems From The Porch
nonjudgmental presence to myself
unconditional positive regard for myself
only supportive assumptions about myself
full acceptance of you
generous love for you
believing the best about you
Don’t be fooled.
You can’t have one without the other.
How can this be?
Because . . .
there is only One of us here.
Seeing the innocence in myself and others
Approaching the Divinity in me as a child,
utterly dependent and trusting,
approaching the Divinity in you as a child,
with respect and wonder,
embracing Jesus in disguise in you
and in me,
is all I ever need for healing.
