Surrender

Bali, Indonesia

Bali, Indonesia

 

She woke up.

And in the midst of her darkness,

She let go.

She let go of all that she knew about herself.

She surrendered to soft whispers of truth.

Cradled in the arms of acceptance,

she was released from the grasp of self-inflicted pain.

Enveloped in a love unconditioned by the limitations of her human mind,

she felt whole. 

She opened her eyes.

Stepping outside the boundaries of self,

she began to shed old habits.

Discarding restrictive beliefs,

she found freedom.

She welcomed change.

Awakened to the idea of a quantum leap in her existence,

She jumped.

Rocketed into a new dimension, 

she found liberation in a realm of vast possibilities.

She began to see the world for all that it was. 

Sweat drips from her brows as she walks underneath a roaring sphere of flame. 

Skin drinking in sweet rays of sunshine,

She stops.

And listens,

to the sound of her heart.

Each pause between beats, 

reminds her of the stillness within.

Eternity residing within her bones,

equivalent to the serenity of endless space.

As within, 

Is without.

She began to breathe.

She woke up.

And for the first time in her life...

reality was better than her dreams.
