My inner child is coming through
she would like to say to
“You take yourselves WAY too seriously
underneath the hardness and ego,
therein lies an innocence and wonder
strip your masks away and come play
come frolic with me in the magic of the world.
Revel in the pleasure and beauty
come laugh, dance, sing, skip and jump
be blissful, delightful in every day, every way
be a princess, fairy, queen, angel, prince, elf, king, hero.
be your hearts desire on the stage of the world.”
In a world so fear saturated
it can be a daunting task
as we all have our swords drawn
waiting to attack or be attacked.
I would like to pose these questions
What defines you?
Is that who you are?
are you your bank account, your career, your car, your friends, your house, your status, your religion?
you are not what you know, where you went to school, what you have, who you hang out with, your past, your future.
You are not what you look like, what kind of clothes you wear or how much money you spend.
you are not where you live, what you listen to, what you watch on tv, what you quote, what you have learned.
how cool you think you are
how great you want to be
how exclusive and different
YOU are not even your story.
Step outside of everything you identify yourself with for a minute,
just try it beyond your reservations and withholdings.
how does letting go of all of that, even for an instant, feel?
what I want to know is
where are you when time stands still?
when you feel the connection to all of life?
when you are feeling limitless, all encompassing and in this moment?
are so much more and yet much simpler.
unravel all the outward identifying definitions of self and you are left with
underneath all of the materialistic defining sources
a beautiful light
more exquisite than you can comprehend.
a vulnerable, sensitive space of no time
a place that exists beyond labels and generalizations,
an individual light of the same source.
that source being a force
of knowing and love
of stillness and acceptance
same same but different
I know, feel, see, understand it.
that, my friend,
is the real
The question becomes
how can we collectively strip off these masks and truly understand and embrace the inter-connectedness to one another?
before its too late?
before our race self-destructs?
a vicious, voracious cycle we as humans are in.
superficiality, inferiority, superiority, group us-vs them mentality, power dynamics, exclusivity, elitism, hierarchies are all forms of fear and separation (insecurity)
keeping us locked in our shell and mentality,
judging what is different, instead of embracing what is similar.
feeling superior because we fear being inferior
power-playing outwardly to feel powerful
all the while
the power-source is within.
gossip, criticism, judgement, anger, hatred, ostracization, blame, vindication, separation,
are all part of this fear paradigm.
and fear will keep us imprisoned forever if we allow it.
I don’t care what your judgements, fears and insecurities are
I will accept you for you
I will always think of you as equal
I will try to be in a space of encouraging you for who you are
shadow and light.
We are humans
with our own emotions and insecurities,
all on our individual paths,
no one right way or one right truth
billions of micro truths, ways and beings
in owning our truth we become sovereign.
what do you feel, what is your passion, how are you the way you are……
break free with me
love, love, love, love, love,
is the only space worthy of being,
for love is the key
and will get us through any and everything.
come from that place, show me your realness,
in my opinion
that is the most beautiful you can be
I appreciate you for the light that is underneath all of the fabrications resulting from a plastic, ego-driven, fear-based society.
it is all within
I am learning to love my space within
of unlimited potential,to do, experience and be
in the now
It is all I have and am,
all I wish is to be loved and accepted through my guards, fears and fallacies.
Allowing my inner light to shine brilliantly.
