My life is a prayer to God.
Every breath I take thrums
With the life force that sustains me.
Every step I take is a lesson
That shows me again and again
How I may conquer my fear
And come home to myself.
Yet I am never far from home,
Less than a moment away,
And every atom that shapes me
Is default set to guide me to my bliss.
On the outside my life may seem unremarkable,
But deep within, I am an extraordinary being of light
Who is immersed in the sea of creation.
Yet I guard this secret well, even from myself.
Apart from sometimes, when the veil slips
And I stretch effortlessly into infinity.
But even when I perceive myself falsely
And my light appears to dim,
Even then, when I go within
I feel my skin straining to contain me,
For fear my true nature will break free,
Shattering my limited illusions before I am ready.
Even now, as I sit here quietly,
I can feel it, a tipping point, a balancing act
As who I think I am wrestles with who I know myself to be.
I am God’s love, God’s joy, God’s peace.
I didn’t think I was big enough to hold so much
But I find that I am vast, immense beyond belief.
Can you feel it too?
That gentle hum like a million fluttering doves.
That is you, your essence,
Vibrating, pulsating with the heartbeat of creation.
You are amazing, you are beautiful,
You and I are everything
And we are nothing.
We are free, we are unbound,
We are the silent sound,
Sharing a dream of physicality.
