Spirals


Relyn recently invited us to post our No. 5 and 
No. 10 posts from our blog infancies. I'm not sure what 
number this was, but it was a very early post.
I've reworked it just a bit and am posting it
while I'm on a more exterior journey.

To me, spirals bespeak an inner journey,
a heroic quest to perfectly express
our uniqueness and soul signature.

 All of us encounter layers of meaning, find ourselves
 confronted with challenges time and again.
Sometimes it's the same old stuff in new packages.
Other times it's brand new stuff
because we've learned some of the earlier lessons
 and we're ready for bigger 
(and hopefully BETTER) things. 

Who hasn't circled round and round,
trying to find that center 
of stillness and peace?

Who hasn't longed for a sure
 and steady path to a blissful destination,
even if it turns out to be 
a mere resting place?

What journey are you taking, here and now,
in this time of changing consciousness?

What keeps you going deeper and deeper, 
even when going deeper makes you feel
like you're about to drown 
and you're afraid you'll never be able to breathe
 underwater long enough to reach
 the sweet center
where your soul provides a home?

Wasn't it fun looking back at your old stuff? I love it.

Such wisdom here Meri. We do spiral through life - revisiting the same themes but at deeper (or higher) levels of consciousness.

You have a delightful way with words. I'll be waiting for your book - with your own illustrations and photographs, of course.
