The Dancer and The Weeper
Sometimes it seems that half of me is crying because there is so much sadness, and the other half of me is dancing because it is so wonderful to be alive!
Everyday and every moment I either make space for the dancer or pull tissues for the weeper.
I do not understand why the dancer needs to dance and why the crier wants to cry or, why both of them are within me.
Sometimes The weeper becomes so strong that I can forget about the dancer.
I never even ask if it is still dancing. This wailing of the crier seems so real and intense.
Yet, the dancer has always been there, and it always will dance.
Whatever happens in my life, I would like very much to learn to watch the dancer. I want to be absorbed by the dancers dance.
To me, this is beautiful!
Inspired by the dancers dance I choose those things that allow me to watch.
My sorrow does not come from what has happened to me-it comes because I am not watching the dance. When I begin to watch the dance again there is joy.
To you catch the magic again is everything!
Darkness vs. Light
Darkness vs. Light
I don’t fear the darkness as I did when I was a child anymore
There are no monsters that lay waiting under my bed at night
The monsters no longer hide in the darkness they are everywhere
It is the light that I fear the most now
To see what I don’t want to see
The light has no imaginations
Whatever it shows you is real
The darkness can seem kinder in that way because it is usually just thoughts
Most of which are emotions blown out of proportion
Oh! But the Light !!!!!….it has no mercy and it does not take into account anything
It can be abrupt
It can be harsh
It can be painful
Although, the light will bring healing or wisdom
Where as the darkness just leads us into exceptions that we can accept to avoid pain
The light will set you free
Only if you accept it with an open heart
The darkness on the other hand will always keep you blind as long as you are willing to stay
To be free we must own what the light shows us
Own it all!
Accept it and be responsible for it come what may !
The light will show you the way…. It will free you in ways you may not understand or even conceive
I choose the light knowing that there is always a bit of darkness lurking inside me
Some days it is not easy
Some days the light does not win
Some days I am neutral
Some days I bow down to the light
This delicate balance I must maintain is cumbersome at times
But, I will awake again
Weighing out the scales in all that I do for the day
Seek the light
Know your darkness
Release your fear
Accept the truth
Find your healing
You are not alone!
