MESSAGE FROM A DYING FRIEND
- Jeff Foster
I don't want your answers, your good advice. I don't want your theories about 'why' or 'how'. I don't need your pity. Your attempts to make me feel better only make me feel worse. I am human, just like you, and crave realness.
Just be present with me. Listen. Give me space. Hold my trembling hand, sometimes. Your attention is so precious to me. Your being speaks volumes.
If you feel uncomfortable, don't be ashamed. If you don't know what to say to me, that's okay; I feel that way too, sometimes. If you feel disgusted, angry, uncertain, fearful, that's okay, I love you for it. You are human, too.
Put your textbook learning to one side now. Don't try to have 'unconditional positive regard'; it feels so false to me. Forget 'empathy' - I want you to come closer than that.
See, I am you, in disguise. These are your broken bones, your shallow breaths, your twisted limbs. I am your mirror; you are seeing yourself.
Don't try to be strong for me. I am not a victim. Fall apart, if you must. Weep, if you need to weep. Mourn those shattered dreams, those lost futures. Let the past slip away too. Meet me here, now, in the fire of presence, with the fullness of your being.
I speak in an ancient language now.
I want you to be a witness.
Cedar is creating a conscious online community and supporting readers to
co-create their own New Earth Communities with family and friends.
Please share this link with your networks.
There is no returning to life as it was before March 2020. These times of chaos and transformation call for kindness and on-going support for each other.
We are crafting splendid new lives with every conscious decision and upgraded action now.
Your financial help for my work and dream of developing a Starseed New Earth Education and Creative Community is much appreciated whether a few dollars or more and whether a one-off contribution or recurring.
