Movement

Posted on Updated on

such magic in movement

the way a body comes to life

in choreography

unknown only seconds before

transcending the mind

communicating directly with spirit

with Providence

gracefully creating a language of truth

swirling mysteries hidden in flesh

dancing a prayer

of wisdom embodied

Unbreakable

The Unbroken

There is a brokenness heart
out of which comes the unbroken,
a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.

There is a sorrow
beyond all grief which leads to joy
and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.

There is a hollow space
too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.

There is a cry deeper than all sound
whose serrated edges cut the heart
as we break open to the place inside
which is unbreakable and whole,
while learning to sing.

~Rashani

I read this poem several years ago and I remember the truth of it echoing through me, bringing me much-needed peace. It reminded me that even in pain there’s beauty, and that what matters the most will never be broken. It is one of my favorite poems, although I haven’t thought of it for a long time – but then today when I read the most recent post on The Better Man Project it immediately popped into my mind again. Funny how that works..

May we all remember, or have someone to remind us, that our dark moments serve a valuable purpose and that we hold in our hearts unbreakable love and light ♥

Between science and soul

Posted on Updated on

At the moment, my life revolves around a mountain of scientific reading. Every read book or article just inspires me to put three others on the must-read list. Philosophy, quantum physics, psychology and neurobiology (okay and everything else actually, to be honest, I’m kind of greedy) will hopefully (and soon) create a platform of knowledge from which I will unfold ground-breaking research. Or just produce an A on my thesis. Whichever.

While my brain is struggling to store information and expand neural networks at the same speed I stuff it with more information, I stumbled upon this quote. Instantly, it allowed me to access the only knowledge that really matter; the wisdom from which I came; the blueprint of my soul.

I don’t know if it will do the same for you but nevertheless I wanted to share it with you.

 

“And we are nature. We are nature seeing nature. We are nature with a concept of nature. Nature weeping. Nature speaking of nature to nature. The red-winged blackbird flies in us.”

I am Love
dressed in a soul
traveling in a human body
sometimes confusing myself
with being a human
contemplating Love

roots searching deeper

exposing layers of buried light

kissing life into sleeping seeds

ascending towards greater wisdom

reflected in grey eyes
