Here’s another poem by Steve Taylor, which very much speaks to me. I hope it also speaks to you.
The Healing Place
There is a healing place inside you
beneath your thoughts and feelings
beyond any concept of identity
or any sense of separation –
a reservoir of soul-force
radiant and pure
infinitely deep and dense
like the nucleus inside an atom.
When your body needs to repair itself
or your energies need replenishing
or your restless mind needs calming
let go of your life’s demands
and sink into the healing place
like a diver into warm still water.
Immerse yourself in its radiance.
Let its healing force soak into you.
Let pure consciousness pervade the cells of your body
and shine through the space of your mind.
The healing place lies outside space and time.
It transcends matter, isn’t bound by the laws of physics.
It’s a supernatural place where miracles occur
as naturally as the wind blows.
And so you will emerge from the healing place
refreshed, even recreated
as if risen from the dead.
