Drama of Awakening
"Love looks not with the eyes, but with the mind, and therefore a winged Cupid is painted blind." ~William Shakespeare
Can you see beyond what life has made of me? Can you see the strength that lies under my fear? Can you see the love that is buried under the scars of my experience? Do you see what you want to see or do you see me for who I really AM?
Sometimes I cry deeply for the lost souls that didn't have the chance to heal and change into their true characters. Sometimes I cry for myself, for how much I lost. Sometimes I cry in gratitude that I wasn't so damaged as to never be able to love.
Time is on my side, even when I feel I have so little of it or I feel it is to elusive to manage. Time can take space from me and it can be the space that allows my healing. It takes time to put all the pieces of myself in their proper places, especially as I am still finding parts of myself that surprise me. Time allows me the patience to fit into who I have become. It is the time in-between here and there that allows me to become whole. With my new script, who I want to be is who I AM, and when I forget that, I am giving up a starring role in the greatest masterpiece of all time-my life!
To all kindred souls who share the stage, remember that you are not broken or damaged. I see you for who you are today, not as fragmented pieces from your past, but as a purposely written script that has been edited. You have been released from re-creating the drama that was cast upon you to no fault of your own. I see the tenderness in your soul that says I hurt, and I see the strength that exudes from the light of your soul that says I can! I see you in my mind and I feel you in my heart for now is the dawn of awakening.
"What is past is prologue." ~William Shakespeare
