Indefinable You

I had to remove my gaze – for what had been was veiled in the past, and I could no longer stare at the emptiness left in its place. You see, I had been torn apart by it. I had looked as though it be an eternity, and I mourned its over-ness with a great and terrible tumult that welled and swelled and ultimately became me. I was a great writhing beast of turmoil, and it was within myself that I needed to pour out my unconditional love as though a salve to cover those ripped and torn places. It was for a length of time that I would nurse myself through that pain. That I would sit with it – that great and hulking beast that I had become – and with gentleness – allow myself to express it in its entirety, and for the duration that was necessary in order that it would finally subside. Only then, in that quiet moment of acceptance, could I move my gaze in a new direction, and in so doing, continue down my life’s chosen path.

Sorrow is best dealt with in the open, and with no fear of the grieving. It must be embraced in order that its final power be manifested into some larger, better vision. To tuck it away, to hide it behind a sheen of denial, is to let if fester and rot and ruin the beauty that is trying to emerge from within the darkness. Do not let the fear of pain rob you of your transformation. Too many are choosing pretense over raw, real, humanism and it is slowing the pace of life, and creating empty husks of apathy where fiery souls once resided. You are the Light shining out from behind the crack in the veneer. You think you are the veneer, you think you are the story of your life, and that every label you wear is an accurate description of who you are – But when that story crumbles apart, instead of rushing to write a new story – Stop and Be with Yourself in solitude – Experience the Light that You Are ~~ That is the Indefinable You

  1. Another classic cousin. Poem after poem, they are all so good. I just cant see where you come up with all these thoughts and dreams, within your heart and mind. Too be quite frank with you, you make me somehow feel less because I feel like I’m missing something inside myself because I never come up with these thoughts and feelings like you do. You are truly blessed. Its really pretty heavy if you think about each sentence. You are an amazing lady Shari. I love reading your writings. Keep them coming and I’ll keep on reading. Love you.

    • Oh Jim, you are connected to your higher self, or to God if you prefer. The misperception you have believed is that there is something you need to do, some “better” behavior that you need to express in order to garner gods approval. These limiting beliefs have kept you bound in the illusion of your life that you have created for yourself. The trick is to take a hold of yourself in such a way that you claim responsibility for every single thought. Look closely at what you believe and see that so much of what you think does not serve you. And instead of feeling shame, feel the empowerment of that! And then sit in the quiet place within yourself (heaven) and be determined to be an empty, open vessel. Then you will come to know that you are the all powerful movement of your life, and it has always been you. As your awareness of that expands, everything in your life will change. As your perception changes, you will change, and you will create differently. Your whole life is created in your own image. You need to take a close look at that image and take complete credit for the life you have made. And once you can do that, you can recreate it any way you please. I love you cousin. Look for the white feathers because gramma leaves them for me everywhere. ❤


      • Yes but I also believe that this is your blessing. I believe everyone is given something special, it’s just some people never find their gift, but you have and this is it. So it shouldn’t effect me actually when I look at it that way. This is what you’ve been blessed with and I’m happy to see you expressing yourself out here on this forum. This is what you were born to do. I think its great!
