There are days when we are just spent.
Sometimes the challenges and insanity of this realm seem like a high tide of wave after wave, rolling over us. Dragging us under.
You just have no words.
But yet, you hold on. You take another slow breath. You just let the time, as challenging and even hopeless as it may feel at that moment tick by. It’s a day of holding on to your last semblance of sanity. Durability.
You go to sleep. Maybe not even that great of rest.
But then something happens.
A slight shift.
A bird singing in the distance.
A song comes on the radio.
Some stranger smiles and waves to you. Someone opens a door for you, or pays you a small compliment.
Something inside reemerges,
out of the cave.
It has been quiet in the background. Dimmed for awhile.
But it could not be put out completely. Not by anything in this world.
It was kindling amongst the chaos and challenges. Very low burn. But always there.
Now it is calling you back. Growing in intensity. The warmth. The strength. The beauty. The power. The magnificence.
The fire in the center
of your heart.
What is stronger than
anything in this dream.
It is the you which can never truly be extinguished. Never truly die.
It is the you which you have brought into this world, not only to survive it’s greatest challenges, but to transcend them.
And when this spark rises back into flame, its warmth transforms all it comes in contact with.
It transforms this entire world.
Keep coming back to this flame, again and again.
It is your true home. Your true nature. And it is always there, waiting for you to call upon it.
