Like a stone…

What can I say when the words won’t come?

The pain just sits in my heart like a giant weight,

that keeps on growing…

How do I cry when my tears have dried up?

Emotions are stuck in my throat,

like lumps.

I’ve been strong for so long,

through my grief,

I’ve gone on…

But now I feel cold,

like a stone.

    You nailed it, Toni. Every word. Thank you – there’s comfort when someone can say what I feel. And maybe “comfort” isn’t exactly the right word, but it’s the best I can do.

    A stone should move into the sun, have you ever wonder why?

    kiss your dad!


  4. This may be hard to understand, Toni, but I’d suggest that you be stone through and through. Don’t move from your pain, your loss, your inability even to feel anymore or to make any willful effort to withstand, control, be strong, or judge yourself. Just simply be stone through and through, without the least separation. Give up every attempt to make sense of what happened or how you should respond to it; neither judge yourself harshly nor give yourself an excuse. Just simply be the truth of this stone ‘no way out’. Then you will finally be one, without division, the truth of yourself centering all the causes and conditions that have brought you to this point. Then ask: who is responsible for death, for the turning of a head? Don’t accept the too easy answer. The answer is not: ‘Toni who is separate and in control of things and must be flayed alive forever’. Be the one stone without explanation or excuse. Look deeply into how things manifest and function. You may be very surprised at what reveals itself.

    May you find and manifest peace for yourself and for all.
