The golden light cascades forward,
Creating a moment of fleeting tranquility.
The space created is sacred and pure,
Interrupted by the noise
and thunder of life passing by.
The shining light
like a watchful gaze
allows dancing shadows and reflections.
Figures and stories exist in the alcoves,
Contemplating the pattern.
Here we sit and walk
as silent music waits in the background.
Circles and cycles
Each part has its place
Puzzling to no end
No holding on to bad edges
Goodness lies in allowance
Create space for momentum
Denying truth is forceful tension
Don’t let it build and distort
Just accept and let go
Clear away storms
Growing from the center within
Gently fighting for self
Source of pure energy
Burns away the unwelcome presence
My energy was changed by what happened,
I was affected in a way I didn’t understand,
Hurt and changed in a way I couldn’t process.
I am strong now to see it through,
I accept what is and what was,
I can transcend this effect to heal myself.
The cycle has been observed,
The repetitions of the trauma recognized,
The shadow self is angry and hurt no more.
The true self has recognized the memories,
Trapped beneath the surface of my reality,
I am what will be and become what is.
Connecting with the true self,
Following our own path,
Speaking truth with efficacy,
Loving wisely and powerfully,
Respecting self and others,
Imagining creatively and feeling gently,
Surviving with rigour and force
Bring balance to live well,
Apply energy to the right centres,
Never wrongly to the incorrect centre,
Lest pain is what is sought
a natural evolution
going against apparent instinct
connecting with the true path
limit pain by walking forward
look to where you walk
not getting distracted looking elsewhere
not hating yourself
not hating what is necessary
Boom, crack, hiss …
the surface is washed
branches are broken
pathways are cleared
connections are destroyed
new growth blossoms afterwards .
explain, walk, hear
Balance it out
live the change
When they go high, we go low to find our way through.
There is a beautiful wisdom in understanding our paths and staying on them. We are built to want things, to yearn for what we do not have so that we find ourselves in-between that which is and could be.
Being aware of not having what we want gives us stability, noticing what we need to get what we want gives us wisdom and feeling discomfort with not having what we want gives us the energy to go get it.
Buried in snow drifts,
Deep in the forest,
They float on,
As spirits without a home.
They never leave,
Watching and yearning,
Dreaming of a release,
They scratch at their cage.
Forsaken parts of ourselves,
Releasing them releases us.
Our reflections look at us,
With our own eyes.
If life has a path for you, you just need to find it.
If that path was crafted for you, it’s meant to be found.
Signs are to be sought after and paid attention to.
In order to grow, sometimes you have to go deep into cold waters.
There’s something about jumping into a new environment that is seemly uncomfortable, but then you settle in, and learn to appreciate the benefits.
The shocking sensation ignites a new feeling that is yours to explore.
If you’re not ever afraid, you might not be trying.
