Even then...

Even when the body is in the throes of a virus
and it coughs
and aches...

Even when emotions from decades ago resurface
and are felt and experienced,
and because of that, for a while, 
there is something we might call despair.

Even then everything is fully experienced 
as it is,
as itself, 
as there is nothing outside of what is present.

The illusion of being separate seen through,
the filters screening direct perception evaporated,
and the fight with what is 
makes place for 
Life happening.

There is simply what is.

In whatever disguise it chooses to show up.

Painful emotions are not a sign of separateness
if we are not perpetuating a story with it,
but simply feel the emotion in all its depth
As it is.
