The Neutral Zone

I lean into the space between beginning and end,
Seeing the Beauty around me, erasing all fear,
Affirming that Love eradicates all negativity.
Light pours into me, healing and bringing Peace.
Serenity is mine as I easily forgive past hurts.
Breathing deeply, I accept My Highest Good.
I feel the warmth of the Universe washing through my senses.
All earthly care drifts away.
Pain and fear are transmuted.
Forgiveness is mine, and I am grateful.
I rejoice in a new day, a new way.
A new beginning, in all its awkward perfection,
Waits with Open Arms.
