You Will Be Free

I need you to know that the way you flay your heart open for the world is brave, that the way in which you refuse to be anything but soft, even when you feel like you may just break under the weight of feeling, is why you are needed here. I need you to know that beautiful things are vanishing each day, and I am proud of you for fighting to ensure that your soul is not one of them. You need to keep fighting.

I need you to know that you will find the places that leave every tender part of you feeling calm and at peace with who you are. You will find the places that inspire everything inside of you to surge and ache with the hope and the beauty of being alive. These places, they are not where you were born, but they will be where you are reborn. You will know when you have found them. My god, will you know.

I need you to know that there are others like you in this world; others who are messy hearted, others who feel things intensely, and without hesitation, others who cannot contain all that they hold within the worlds of their mind because they have only ever known how to pour, how to shatter, how to give and give and give. I need you to now that you will find these people, and they will become your family, you will take care of each other. You will grow together, in the moments between breaths, in the stunning silence that blankets your souls when you connect with the fact that in a world of billions, in the middle of all this noise, you found each other.

But most of all, I need you to know that we are all here together, dealing with what is dark and light within us. I need you to know that you aren’t alone. I need you to know that you are going to survive this. I need you to know that one day, you’re going to be sitting in a place you love, surrounded by people who inspire you, and you’re going to think back to the storms, and the hurricanes that rattled through your bones, and you are going to smile. The clarity will wash over you. You will be free. You will be free.

    Garima,

    That would be great especially now that things are feeling dead and burned up. I pray for a renewal each day.

    Thanks,

    Gary

      Renewal will be yours Gary. Believe. It is giving away what is unreal for example anxiety, hatred, jealousy, anger, ego and taking what is real such as happiness, joy, compassion, love, that sets us free.

      Most welcome. Glad you liked the post. Go, go, go beyond, go altogether beyond, till we achieve freedom or enlightenment. One has to go beyond worldly materialistic acquisitions to feel free.

      Thank you. Modern Psychologists have a similar categorization of these four states. These are Unconscious, Subconscious, Conscious and Superconscious. It is the evolution from the lower state to the higher one that gives us freedom or liberation.

      Most welcome. The scriptures tell us that we are living in a dream world and everything around us is a dream and unreal. It is very difficult to accept this and it takes lots of “Shrvanam” and “Mananam” of spiritual wisdom to understand this concept.

      Thank you. Glad you liked the post. We as humans are so engrossed with the daily chores that we never realize we are living a life of slaves.
