Second Mountain

First Mountain divulged 
Our fragility, raw exposures of
In-denial compulsions,

But a requisite foresight
For breaking our resistance
To Second Mountain

Provocations, crushing
Our mettle as rogue assets
Intruding on cosmic

Schemes we thought
Were ours by birthright, soon
We’ll learn we haven’t

Earned amnesty and
Sovereignty will not coexist
With human pretense

“Whereas mindfulness is the awareness of influences, inner work is the management of those influences. A human being’s decisions around how to be influenced and how to influence, are wholly the domain of inner work.”
