it can be scary
exploring new territory
displaying imperfect humanity
letting life unfold
embracing the unknown
it’s all so very
scary and necessary
Life is hard and sometimes it feels unfair and people will inevitably suck (huge hairy monkey balls) on a regular basis. That’s just the way it is – but it’s not all it is.
It’s a chance to let the world be a mirror reflecting how you choose to live. A chance to adjust an assumption. To straighten out an insecurity or pull back a judgement. Or maybe just relax and admire what you see, in which case, good for you.
It’s a constant balance of navigating between other’s projections and your own blind spots, learning to decipher what your heart is telling you and accept that sometimes there’s no easy solution.
And it’s a wonderful mystery where everything you need is provided with perfect synchronicity and all you have to do is find the courage to accept it and be you.
Easy breezy monkey balls..
so you look around and you see nothing but bright promise. challenges, sure, but meaningful and constructive and most of all, excitingly acceptable. so very warm and safe and wonderful. so you look around again. you’re looking for the crack. you know, that dark crack. the place where all the other stuff is coming from, the scary stuff. the stuff that will make you crawl through an endless night, hopefully, emerging brighter than before. it’s tiny but you find it. curiously moving closer. listening for something calling you. it appears bigger now. a mesmerizing vortex of damage. and so, you jump in.
you, my darkness, i want to know you. i want to feel everything about you. i want to put you on and wear you with the same ease as i wear my skin. i want to make you familiar. intimately dig through your confused mud. taste the regret dripping from your ignorant body. feel the pain you breathe into mine. i want to lose myself in the universe that surrounds you, call out for help and never be heard. i want to find you in your cradle. and then, i want to whisper comfort in your ear.
i want to love you. and not be scared of you. and not run away from you.
and finally, i will open that crack and invite you into my world. and make you shine. and make you, me.
barely understanding me
how can it be
unableing you to really see
what we could be
and leaving me
reduced to hollow poetry
the black and white
of feelings flight
is turning rainbows
I ask of you
please trust the light
the next step forward
“You see things and you say; ‘Why?’ I dream things that never were and I say; ‘Why not?'”
~ George Bernard Shaw
it’s not that it can’t be done
you just haven’t found the way to do it yet
in the clear
freed from fear
finally letting go
of this craze
A dear friend of mine posted this picture.
(well actually she didn’t. She posted a different picture with the same text as below but apparently the artist who made that picture wasn’t allowed to borrow the words from yourtruenature.com – and they didn’t approve.)
I thought it has such a wise and simple message and I just had to share it.
(I actually liked the other picture better but the message is still beautiful )
And PS – yourtruenature.com actually has some pretty cool stuff going on so maybe you should go check out their website.
avoid the temptation to put on a show
strip down to simple honesty
don’t fool the world
avoid the temptation to hide
your heart knows what’s important
don’t fool yourself
have the courage to be naked
never mind the audience
