Absolvi (latin - to absolve)

I will swallow whole: the heads, the tails and guts of all offenses committed upon me and those committed upon others, by me.

I will absorb the energy of these dark offenses; the poison, the pain, the betrayal, the shame, the hurt, the fury, the fear, the indifference.

I will gather heavy chains that I forged in order to carry dark offenses with me and I will free myself and all the others I had shackled to them.

I will allow those offenses, those dark pages of my story, their rightful place in my history.

I will build each offense their own tomb in my bones and marrow. Every last weighty moment lived, will have its own burial site and marker.

I will lay flowers on those graves and walk away ~ head high ~ eyes clear ~ heart open ~

I will allow them to rest in peace and stop dragging what has already been written to clean pages.

I will secure the future's clean and unsoiled pages for new parables and legends.

I will put away the widow's blacks and veil and wholly reconnect with the living, mindful of my many blessings and my need to bless.

I will remind myself daily of the importance of remaining curious and alive to reason and choice with complete focus of head, heart, body and soul.

I will enter into a new and untouched land  ~ My own "State" of grace ~

And I will reign sovereign over my own life with soft step, wise eye, love and reverence.
