3.03a The Smallest Piece

Sage Horsey

 

Let my body decompose so that the smallest pieces of me might know the sweetness of surrender 
[i am being shattered back to life]

 

"The piece I was responding to held a sweetness (a vulnerability) that made
me very uncomfortable. It was so beautiful. So lovely. So kind. I have a hard time
letting myself feel those things. I suppose my process was allowing myself to try and
be gentle towards myself, but being honest about moments of extreme resistance to
that. I asked my brother to film most of it since we have that tension with one
another – knowing that all there is in life is to be good and gentle to yourself and
those you love, but acknowledging how hard that is for each other because of
'home' // 'roots' // and ultimately the environment we grew up in. I am so grateful
for how we act as mirrors for one another in this regard. It seems like the older I get,
the more self compassion becomes non-negotiable. It’s a means of survival and the
only way to really move forward. And that is so terrifying for me. Moments of
leaning in, moments of running away. Moments of taking joy in simply trying to heal
this body."
