The Ties That Bind

Ego reigns high.
I watch small people play God.
They lay concrete highways of sand beneath our feet
Singing silent melodies of victory in our ears
Remind me to never think I know,
Those who know, shred paper houses with real tears.

“Allow them to reject you she said.
Their world is monochromatic, and you…
You inhale the elements from interdimensional air.
They lace harnesses of wind around your ankles
Whispering tales about how they are made of gold.

Be fooled no longer though, my dear
Because you are a Dragon Queen,
While captive bound and iron clad
Your jailor is your own mind.
The key that holds the ties that bind….
Lays resting, ready, beating from within”

Ego reigns high.
I step back in order to watch God’s game unfold.

Tranquility

“For nowhere either with more quiet or more freedom from trouble does a man retire than into his own soul, particularly when he has within him such thoughts that by looking into them he is immediately in perfect tranquility.” ~ Marcus Aurelius

Today, I am in harmony with myself. I am often surprised when I realize that it is not the amount of things to be done that exhausts me, but rather a lack of internal cohesiveness and tranquility. When all feels right in my heart, when I have set aside the time to look inside myself and know myself….. I feel like I can do anything!

You cannot find in a book what you can discover in your own soul. Knowledge shared by others can be a guide in your own personal journey, but what rests deep inside you, can be found no where else.

What does your soul whisper to you today?
