Quintessential Truth #26 – Beyond the Veil
Awaken, that which was once thought dead.
Full of ridges and valleys, like a spent bullet.
Yet, awaiting discovery, like an ancient buried treasure.
Full of wonder, yet mysterious,
delicate yet firm.
Stripped down and not quite bare.
Unlimited, thoughts turned into dreams.
Patterns scattered like twisted streams.
A beautiful dream,
in all, a very simple girl.
A bird without wings,
a song with no voice,
yet, she flies while carrying a tune.
The weight of the world resting on her shoulders.
Beyond the invisible veil, invisible to the world, she was drowning.
Yet, not a soul saw her struggle to pull herself out of the quicksand.
head down and wandering past all.
why does she feel so alone?
Isolated and lacking,
disconnected, yet people are all around.
Alone, yet in the presence of others.
7-Cups of how it works and a dishwasher filled with mugs.
The introverted and depressed are facing their own bloody war. It doesn’t matter what side your on. The merry-go-round still keeps turning, round and round.
Rejected and overlooked, thoughts of self-worth cause the wreckage. Our worst enemy is being in the company of ourselves sometimes. The isolated space, a perfect breeding ground for self-critical thoughts. An internalized enemy the inner-critic.
Behind the invisible veil a raging war of survival goes on. Fight the internal voice of the enemy.
Tolerate it not.
Refuse it entry, you are not awkward or creepy.
Challenge yourself, don’t give up.
Sure, there will always be uncomfortable situations that will lead to uneasy feelings.
When you challenge your inner voices, you become stronger and when persistent enough in countering those self-critical attacks the veil lifts, melancholy dissipates, and you then live free.
Free from self-sabotage, and free from isolation. Society can breed a lot of loneliness but confidence can set you free. One of the best actions we can take to stop the feelings of hopelessness is to think outside of our internal voice. Believe in ourselves. Know that we do have something to offer the world and remind ourselves that we are not alone at any given moment in time, not really.
And, please remember; Bite, chew, swallow and repeat has no place here.
This was a short Quintessential Truth for today.
Until next time……
