The World Inside You. A guided meditation on accessing your inner strength.Dec 07, 2023
“This is your life unfolding and unraveling before you. No feeling is final, or too hard, or too sad for you to be inside. In every direction, you sprawl out like a sun with many beams and you are in strength, and in poverty at the same time. Deny not one extension of yourself, not one beam of light, for how sad the sun of you would be without all of its beams intact. Take away anything from who you are, condemn yourself for any thought or manifestation of thought is akin to taking a knife to your own arm. Dear one, if fear is here, listen to it as many times as it needs, and not once wish it away. For one day, along the rugged path you will find a web of love has been making your path, and finally, finally, you will be able to see that even your repetitive pain laced itself into the shape of a brilliant starlit sun.”
- an excerpt from my journal, 2023
The most valuable advice anyone ever gave me was: I am a pioneer. The world inside you, the one pushing against the walls of your heart and ribs, this one, swirling with a sometimes chaotic churn of fear, angst, and heartache, is entrusted to you, whispering things to you in your sleep, and calling for your love and friendship and you've known this, even before you had words to say it. You seem to be being led from within by something unsettled within you. You are a pioneer meant to discover the wealth hidden in the farthest recesses of your inner world. You are meant to take whatever you find and offer it back in some magnificent way to the world.
