With Open Eyes by Jeff Foster

WITH OPEN EYES

You will lose everything. Your money, your power,

your fame, your success, perhaps even your memories.

Your looks will diminish. Loved ones will die.

Your body will fall apart. Everything that seems permanent

is in truth impermanent and will be smashed.

Experience will gradually, or not so gradually,

strip away everything that it can strip away.

Waking up means facing this reality with open eyes.

But right Now, in this very moment,

You stand on Sacred and Holy ground,

for that which will be lost has not yet been lost, and

realising this Simple thing is the key to unspeakable joy.

Whoever or whatever is in your life right now

has not yet been taken away from you.

Everything is present.

The universal law of Impermanence has already rendered everything and everyone around you so deeply holy and

significant and worthy of your heart-breaking gratitude.

Loss has already

transfigured your life

into an altar.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
