A Question of Awakening.

I hide from it no more poem-spiritual-awakening-death-reborn-life-healing, self healing, blog, love
as I gather up the trash laid bare before me,
buried in the rubble of my old bones.

Hugging, holding, loving,
finally accepting and seeing truth
as all dissolves in the light of one passing,
and all I thought to be real
exists no longer, and through love
a new reality emerges.

New yet ancient,
and all my fears existed not.
If only I’d known to flip the coin
and behold the other side
as truth
but that was further than my reach,
as the voices of masses grew loud
and years ticked by like the second hand on a big round clock.

Alive dead reborn, alive dead born
it was all the same as misery
entrenched us.
The decision to awaken always there
as we flailed in the dark
not knowing how or why
or even that a light switch was so near.

Are you afraid of death?

I know I know, we’re not supposed to talk about it. It’s scary or morbid or whatever. But I like to talk about it and I like to think about it too. And no, I don’t think I’m morbid.

I find it fascinating to imagine that one day I’ll be gone and the world will continue on. People will go about their day, going to work, falling in love, dancing, falling out of love, experiencing life. And I’ll no longer be a part of it.

And do you know why I like to imagine that? 

You might be muttering because I’m a sicko, buuuut it’s actually because it invigorates the hell out of me. It ignites my passion for life because it wakes me up to the fact that one day I’ll no longer be here, and everything else will go on just the same.

Say goodbye to self-doubt, questioning or low-confidence.

In an instant I’m fearless and I remember what I want to do and why. I remember all that is important to me and I make those phone calls to loved ones and friends that I’d been putting off. I sit and write poetry or go for a walk by the sea. I laugh louder and don’t worry about who’s looking. I become free to be me, in my most authentic form because I’ve got nothing to lose. It’s going to end up the same way anyway, so I might as well have fun with it.

But we miss out on this glorious opportunity to really see ourselves and our lives, if we amazing-art-awesome-beautiful-death-afraid-of-dying-reincarnation-what-happens-when-we-die-spirit-keep our fear of death hidden in the shadows.

Usually we’re more afraid of something because it’s been in the shadows, and we’ve never really pondered why we’re afraid. Cos really, when you look at it, how can we be afraid of ourselves dying when we won’t be around once it’s happened anyway? We’ll have passed over.

And I have a feeling the place we’re going to next is going to be a whole lot better than this one anyway, and we’ll laugh that we were all scared and afraid.

From one fearless soul to another,

Sharon

 

 

Challenged Back To Spirit

Infinite SoulI was deeply challenged yesterday and for a brief period, I allowed my knowing and my ideas on love and life and soul to be viewed as just fanciful notions. I allowed circumstance to pull me back into the physicality of the human experience and to disconnect me – to disconnect myself from my true self. From Spirit.

Are your spiritual beliefs bound by circumstance? Can you, in one moment, believe that you are love, that you are a soul, only to then in the next moment, reject another because of their beliefs, words or actions? Or reject spirit and love because you have been hurt? Or reject life because another harms you too badly? What are the limits to which you take your spirituality? At what point can you reject the things that today you believe to be true?

I found my limits yesterday, where the pain of human experience could be so bad that I questioned everything. And through questioning and feeling lost and confused I finally saw the situation, the circumstance for what it really was.

I realised that when I am wholly connected with my true self then there are no limits. There is no circumstance so great that I will question everything – when I am my true self. And if there is then I know I am not fully connected with my true self; I am not my true self, I am my body, I am reactive, and I am bound by rules and limitation.

Therefore, I now recognise that if I am experiencing limits to my spirituality, to my self as a soul then this does not mean I need to re-evaluate my beliefs or evaluate the meaning of it all and the pain we can experience, it purely and simply means that I am not wholly connected with my true self. I have steered away and I am not connected.

It is through this awareness of disconnection that I can become whole once more. I can return to my true self and know that I am okay and that everyone is okay, no matter what happens in our physical reality.
