The Wall


The book A Course in Miracles for Weight Loss

suggests a meditation

For asking God to help to dismantle the brick wall

Of weight that I have built around myself.

Okay,

I’ll try that.

I CAN feel a wall separating me from the world

Behind it I feel blocked and stuck

For a long time now.

Almost feeling that resistance has little point.

And also, a little ease.

And a sort of grounded security.

Like a cave I used to go to when I was little

And the family was too much for me.
