I have waited all my life for this, I have packed my bags, and headed out on my journey…I am now walking in transition, between 2 worlds…
Walking between my ego and my heart
Between inner darkness and light
Between my small self and my higher self
Between the old and the new
Between time and infinity
“So this is freedom“, I think to myself as I walk aimlessly, from here to there, I have no Idea were I am going, I can’t tell where the old ends and the new begins. Whether the sun is rising or has set. In the distance I see a layer of fog that obstructs my vision with more confusion. Yet when I really focus and open my eyes, nice and wide, I can see a speck of golden light brilliantly shining through in the distance. Within this glimpse of light I have faith, and I know the warmth and love of the light will eventually penetrate through the fog. I remind myself that it just takes time and patience…
Then impatience sets in…the needs the desires the wants…the entrapment, as I travel even further and deeper into the darkness of my ego, I feel so lost and alone, further from the light from home. I am disoriented, paralyzed by my fears, terrified of facing the darkness and the pain of the small self I have created. It becomes too much, I want to run and hide, to go back to sleep. But I can’t, I will not, I have come too far, I have asked for this, I have created this, the door was opened to me, I went in.
So I stop, I cry, I release, breathe, begin to let go. I pray for guidance, for more light, for love, I surrender, I can not bear to carry this, I open. Then the peace comes again, as I join with spirit, I am filled with hope and strength…all is well.
I pick myself up, open to life, and I proceed as a warrior of LOVE, I open up my heart to the world, walking tall, I carry on.
These are my rhythms, and I recognize this for exactly what it is, a rhythm. This is a re-birth, within birth comes pain, the pain and the death of the old self, eventually emerging anew.
So like the LION, I will discern between the old and the new, and have the courage, and strength to implement the new, with each choice I make. Each time I apply the courage of the lion, to the choices I make, more love and more strength I am given.
RISE ABOVE. EVOLVE.
