Along the journey of self-actualization, we all have that moment once in a while where won’t-power strikes and wins from your willpower. You just can’t find the strength to do what you should be doing, and because of your level of self-awareness, it feels terrible. “I’m being lured away from connectedness by cravings and old habits. Making the wrong choices, fully conscious of it, yet I feel powerless to choose differently. It’s torture for my soul.”
Spoken poetry comes your way on #OutspokenSundays.
May you find a piece of your Self in every piece of poetry.
Meditation and stillness brings great peace, as you might have already experienced yourself. This poem describes the feeling when you rise above all worldly things and allow Truth to settle in. “The turmoil of the ripples and the drama of the waves left behind in the only place they can exist: the superficial surface. Just for a moment, I’m free.”
Last week was the release of the poem “Fear of success”. Right after writing that, a realization dawned upon me: it’s not success that scares me. “It’s the path to success that does. There where I walk in my innate strength, where I speak out on my Truth, where I express my purest self limitlessly. It’s a fear that has roots far into the past. I’m not literally tied up anymore, yet deep marks remain visible on my soul’s body. The divine woman.”
“As I stand in front of my window in gratitude for another beautiful day, I give praise. A calmness washes over me.” Rooting yourself in your Truth every day isn’t all that hard. All it takes is a moment of gratitude and simply being in the morning. Slow down and allow dawn to sooth you into a brand new day.
Let us rise beyond the limitation that is instant gratification and instead build a solid foundation. Often when we humans want something, we want it right here and right now. Sounds familiar? It causes us to chase short highs of feeling good, leaving us feeling empty soon enough after the desire was gratified.
