What is split off, not felt, remains the same.
When it is felt, it changes.
Most people don’t know this!
They think that by not permitting
the feeling of their negative ways
they make themselves good.
On the contrary, that keeps these negatives static,
the same from year to year.
A few moments of feeling it in your body
allows it to change.
If there is in you something bad or sick or unsound,
let it inwardly be and breathe.
That’s the only way it can evolve and change
into the form it needs.
