Reflection for today…Closing Doors -Paulo Coelho

7 Jan

“Close some doors.

Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance,

but simply because they no longer lead somewhere.

-Paulo Coelho

Even though it may be painful to close a door, it might be the best thing for you…

*

It can be so painful to close a door.

It can be even more painful to try to keep a door open that isn’t meant for you.

I used to have such difficulty in closing doors. It used to hurt so much because I struggle with endings and the melancholy they bring. I think I am getting a little stronger spiritually and emotionally. I recently closed a door and blocked some phone numbers {which is completely out of my character}.

Perhaps that is a sign of maturity and spiritual growth?

Regardless of what this change signifies, it feels right.

WHEN THINGS EXPLODE LYRICS

[Verse 1: Ian Astbury]
“Your skull froze little lives
In shadows where you hide
A life that was designed
You’ve been cheated, oh so blind
You laid it on the line
These twisted words of time
And how your spirit shines
I wish that you were mine[Chorus: Ian Astbury]
Yeah, lately
I know that I’ve been crawling
I know that I’ve been falling
Into your dream[Verse 2: Ian Astbury]
Imagine no more tears
Dissolving all your fears
With tooth and claw we fight
Into this endless night[Chorus: Ian Astbury]
Yeah, lately
I know that I’ve been crawling
I know that I’ve been falling
Into your dream

[Verse 3: Ian Astbury]
I saw my tears in your eyes
You saw your tears in mine
We watched it burn together
I saw my fears in your eyes
You saw your fear in mine
We watched it burn together

[Bridge: Ian Astbury]
Watched it burn
Burn, yeah, burn
Watched it burn
Burn, yeah, burn
Watched it burn
Burn, watched it burn
Watched it burn
Burn, watched it burn

[Outro]
All is forgiven.”

Stream of Consciousness Reflections…Mysoulsonfire…

6 Jan

This is a little story I wrote in 2015 but never posted it.

I decided to post it now.

Sadly, I no longer feel the same way about the person that inspired it.

He betrayed me with such passionate cruelty.

He shattered my soul.

He slowly tortured my heart and destroyed it from the inside out.

Through my pain and suffering, wisdom has illuminated me.

He is not my soulmate- my true love; therefore, I now dedicate this story to my mystery soulmate (whoever he is)…

*

Dedicated to all the Soul Mates out there…

It is said that when soul mates are about to meet, their energy starts to entangle. They start to exchange energy as they prepare to make a soul connection.

They met lifetimes ago but measured in human time it amounts to about thirty years ago. In the dawn of youth, their paths crossed briefly. Mysteriously, their families were deeply intertwined yet they did not see each other at social events. One wonders if they ever caught a glimpse of each other but did not really notice each other. Perhaps at the time, they did not recognize each other’s souls. Each set on their own path until they met again.

*

They set each other’s souls on fire…

She is humbled by his compassionate heart and spiritual presence. He is someone who gives without expecting anything in return. He knows the true meaning of altruism and he lives by it. One of his passions is to help people although he does not give himself credit. His humility is a part of his essence and she greatly respects his humble nature. He is compassionate, supportive and kind. He is a sensitive soul and a natural healer. He has a heart of gold.

He is her gift from the universe and she is so grateful for him.

*

“Divine timing allowed their souls to become entangled- enmeshed.” The universe did not allow them to meet until the time was just right. Each one had to experience a certain amount of suffering and heartbreak in order to mature and later on heal together. The stars had to be perfectly aligned for their meeting to occur. As the writer Paulo Coelho would say, “the universe conspired” so that they would meet.

Their meeting was truly electric and people noticed the attraction and connection. Family members took note of the kinship and growing friendship. Their lives were undergoing a metamorphosis as they grew to know each other. Each revolutionized the other’s life {as is the case with soul mates}.

He said the most romantic thing to her…”you came into my life like an apocalypse.” To the untrained ear, that may sound negative but to her soul, it was music and poetry. Her love of dystopic and apocalyptic art was mirrored in his words. Although apocalypse denotes endings, to them it was the genesis of their soulful romance.

He is her spiritual mirror and reflection {and she is his}. They reflect each other’s spiritual light and darkness. They challenge each other to learn, grow/evolve and together they heal and love. Together they have learned the meaning of faith and what it means to truly believe in someone. This faith has matured them and strengthened them in ways they are unaware of.

With him, she does not need her metaphorical armour. She is spiritually naked and vulnerable. She trusts that the universe beautifully orchestrated their meeting and their relationship for a higher purpose. He found her heart despite her hiding it. Despite her fear, love prevailed.

Anam Cara is the Irish word for soul friend. If you meet one of these kindred spirits, you should consider yourself blessed. They transcend the label “best friend” for they are the utmost manifestation of love and friendship. Compassion guides their actions as their loving presence is felt.

She saw this image on Pinterest and it warmed her heart to think of the possibilities of her life with him.

What Are You To Me? Lyrics

“(Day dream… day dream…) Day dream…(day dream…)

So many times I’ve overflowed

So many faces come and go

I play my cards into the sun And try to work out What you are to me To me

Been here before A million open doors Only one will set me free

So I fall against the wall And try to work out What you are to me, to me, to me, to me… To me…

Inside my eyes The answer lies Something I can’t see

Another day Another way It’s the same to me, to me To me…, to me…, to me… (what’s wrong?) To me… (to me…) To me… (to me…) To me… (to me…) To me… (to me…)

Stream of Consciousness Reflections…Spiritual Nakedness

3 Jan

How do you know if someone is enamoured with your soul- your essence?

How can you get to a place where you can drop all masks/pretenses?

How to get to a place of vulnerability- spiritual nakedness that is beyond sex/sexuality, ego/narcissism and identity?

Where is the path to get there?

Will you walk it even if you find it?

{It takes a great deal of courage and maturity to walk this path}.

How does one get to that place of spiritual humility?
