Still, skipping through the watersof my subconsciouslike a stone.The pain intensifiesas does the ecstasy,and I am drowning-and I am breathingfor the first time.Pray, wake me from thisbeautiful nightmare.Please, leave me to dream.
In this moment, you Are, and you rise like the lotus out of the mud, and you unfold your way toward the light. In this moment you transcend the world and float toward infinity. It is enough that you breathe. In this moment, in your presence, all worries fade to insignificance in the brilliance of your light and the fullness of your breath. In this moment all gates open up to you; all possibilities remain. In this moment you have a choice, and that choice is always available to you now.
The dawn breaks slowly after the soul’s dark night.
I know it feels like you will never see the sun. I know what it is to be stranded in your own shadow, bones shaking, face slick with tears, struggling to breathe. Too tired to fight, too scared to sleep. I know what it is to be all alone in the dark, no stars to guide you, nobody to hold you. I know what it is to scream silently. To stand at the edge of the abyss, whipped by a heartless wind, willing yourself to have the courage to jump because surely anything would be better than this endless night.
Sit with yourself in silence.
There is nothing to fear. All that you need, you already are. Sit in silence, and reflect. Sit beneath the trees, open your heart and breathe in the silence. Let it fill you, let it become you. Allow yourself to listen to that gentle inner voice- that voice which can’t be heard above the din of this life. Listen to the voice that stirs in your silence, for that voice will lead you home to yourself.
I promise you that learning to let go is the most precious gift you can give to yourself. You deserve that gift. You did not come here to be unhappy, to be full of pain. As you release, you make space; and into that space floods light. And in that bright light you will see yourself as you truly are- in your divinity, in your completeness. Bathed in bright light, you reclaim your power. In light you can meet yourself, you can know your essential nature. Unfettered. Unburdened. As Is. And in that light, you will Know.
