open to feel

When you can’t see the road ahead.

Do you, like me, try to find an invisible torch within your chest that can help you light the way and watch your steps, trying hard to avoid the fall into any abyss? Or do you just allow the falling?

What do you do when you end up on the open streets, with no money in your bank account? When you lose someone or when you lose yourself? What do you do then? How do you cope with the hopelessness that pulls your chest up and down without letting you grasp for air?

What do you do when the world out there feels cold and rainy? And you seem to not make any sense out of anything for a while?

Do you, like me, try to cling to the old ways of living and being because you don’t know any other way, or you know deep down but are not quite sure how to go about it?

If we are honest with ourselves, we will admit that sometimes, while in certain situations, we simply have no clue where to turn to or whom to call or what to do. The thing is, sometimes no one and nothing can really be helpful, because our souls are moving in ways and directions that we cannot grasp or understand.

If you, reading this right now, are going through a similar experience of not knowing or falling apart or seeing your entire life dissolve before your eyes, or are in pain for whatever reason, I don’t have words of consolation to tell you.

I have only these words to say to you:

Allow the falling to happen. Life will catch us up in new ways.

~Ilda Dashi

where do the dark paths run up to meet compassion?

inquiry for today~ whatever you are holding, know you are part of a wild and curious and perspicacious “something”…..

the blues

Do not feel lonely.

The entire universe is inside you.
