Life can take you all over the place and nowhere at the same time, it’s all about what you allow yourself to see out of your eyes and avoiding the dark spaces that can render the strongest of us blind. Those with 20/20 can often live with less sight than those with none, few of us truly know how we will respond when the worst is yet to come.
The key is to see the rays of the sun, its in dreaming up the better days coming, its about facing what hurts dead on, knowing the winter will soon pass and the summer will come, just stay still and allow it all to happen, halt your soul from the fight or flight and that constant thought of running.
I used to sit just to be right there, I used to eat to taste the food, I used to do it because I could see the depth in what I was doing, I took my time in every moment, I lived as if I cared. I was on a constant climb up, how high could I climb, I was not the soul who was scared.
I often watched life in amazement, from the point of the curious soul, I always want to know more, the how’s, the whys, the who’s, the what’s. I observed everything going on. I saw life and I tried like hell to live it and when I experienced the greatest thing in life ( love ) I tried to give it.
It’s who I am, Its who I was. The one seeking the depth of, The one so hungry for what lies beneath the surface of it all. The fisherman, the fisher of souls, the listener of the stories to be told. It never did happen until I laying on the ground looking up at my feet, that the strength in me comes from the souls I meet, so when I go introvert my energy becomes weak. I never meet a stranger or a person I don’t try to understand and in learning empathy and practicing sympathy, I had become one hundred times the man.
It’s a lesson taught through personal strife because at some point we get caught in the world and become blind to the fullness of the people and the experiences of life and to all the fruit and fish that the world itself can provide.
If only we just get up and go outside into our lives and out of the darkness of the depression of the eyes through the mind.
The sun is always shining.
