On the way out

Mired in overwhelming circumstances, beyond the control of the conscious mind.
Pain being inevitable, suffering being optional. So often forgetting that there's no need and purpose in the suffering. The emotional part of the brain engulfs the body with drained energy, so much so that it seems as if the beingness of who I am is drowning in mud, flailing about, causing splatters of gunk on the splintered pieces of the soul that have not yet been melded into glistening glimmers of gold.



The empowered portion of the soul seeks valiantly to rise above the muck and disaster swirling around the enveloped heart, wrapped in humanity, yet silently singing in spirit, whispering renderings of memories of the innate greatness, so often forgotten.


That strong spirit granted to this fragile soul is but a dichotomy for its existence. An oxymoron so as to remember that there IS a choice, there IS a way out. And on the way out of this turbulent happening, the soul is then relieved that all things in life are temporary and that the only constant in life is change. "This, too, shall pass", thank God.

The greatest mystery in life is to discover what are we made of. The complexities of being human can be a fogged mirror that prevents us from seeing that perfect light inside. Pain, physical or emotional and make us more aware of this light. Or perhaps, when we cant look up to face our reflection, can mask away who we are. I was told once, that one of the most beautiful flower. the lotus flower, makes it way in the mud. The thicker the mud the more it grew in size and beauty.

I have to live with physical pain everyday, because all the things that I couldn't;t do has been hard to accept, but it has made me stronger. Now after so many years of being afraid of more pain and even death, I realized that I have been blessed. The doctors said that by 2005 I would be in a wheelchair, I still can walk; Because I have Lupus they said that my kidneys and heart would give out, After two heart attacks and 5 kidney infections; I am still here writing this; They said that because I had a stroke when I was 18 it would take months for me to walk,talk and regain the movement in my hands; after 3 weeks I could hold my newborn daughter without assistance. Life is so full of mountains and canyons, but there are also beautiful meadows and valleys. The soul is the last thing to give up. Even though my body struggles to feel free my soul already knows it can fly.
