There is nothing wrong with admitting
that at times
this is much to bear
and you must fall on your knees
to let it out,
in a sigh or a cry
because being alone is part of our existence.
All the materialism,
collection of people,
obsessions and addictions
that space you have
opened to Spirit –
the awed-nature awareness
that says, “Hello, look at me,”
when you feel deserted or forsaken.
Allow it. Surrender.
You are not alone.
This journey is existential in nature
and its path is lighted by sacredness.
Sometimes the ache is profound and it comes
deep from Greatness
while you say,
“Let it go. Make it go away.”
Beg, plead and negotiate.
It does no justice to that space,
to the ache from the beyond.
The heart knows nothing of negotiations;
it is driven by a vast and endless force.
Tell me what drives this alienation to such intensity.
Let me hold you and help you in your need.
You don’t need to be alone–
you are not alone.
I may be able to hold your hand,
make you smile,
and when I leave
the emptiness will visit again
until you don’t feel its desperate claws.
You will sit with it and love it
as you reach the beauty in yourself.
I cannot fix this.
You don’t need anyone
to try and mend the process of your rhythm.
This ache and withdrawal goes unnoticed by others
but it is there peeking,
poking, projecting and protruding
until it surfaces again and again.
Don’t question your faith.
Forgive yourself for anything and everything.
Question You and what You need to learn from it.
don’t question a thing.
Let it subside on its own.
Be aware of any pain,
control, the illusion of separation
and dive into the wisdom it creates.
Be thankful for it
because it means
that you are alive.
It means you are never alone.
It means….you are filled with creation!
To all those moving through these times full of hurt and despair. Please reach out. You are not alone.
