“Hi ! Don’t I know you?” I said to the shadowy figure..
“Yes”, it replied
“Ive been here alone in my life” I said, “missing something, Ive been feeling badly.”
“Lets dance then….”
“Take my hands, and I will give you back your freedom
You were born free….”
“But I feel so heavy, and weak. I may not be able…….”
“Let me tell you a secret”, the figure said
“At one point, your desire to be here was paramount
Giving birth to that desire was easy !”
“Fleshing out your thoughtform was not, for you at least..”
“So I had a desire to live again?
And that desire was pure, I was born pure?
But the actual living of my life, through the years…
What of that, what of the pain I feel inside?”
“Why, you agreed to be molded and shaped by others.”
The figure said sharply.
“One day, you would come to realize that your beliefs are not your own !”
“If only I could rid myself of all these feelings”, I said.
“THEN DO IT NOW !!” IT shouted, “before its too late !
Just close your eyes and feel…But before you do..”
I noticed what seemed to be wings on this figure
What could IT be?
“Take my hands quickly”, it said…I reached out, and suddenly –
I felt light, as I lifted off the ground and began to …?
We floated, and we danced holding hands,
In what seemed like a merry-go-round…Oh, we laughed!!
“WITH EACH BELIEF YOU FEEL AND RELEASE“, it shouted.
“YOU SHALL BE FREE !”
I began to cry,
I felt warm, secure, safe and loved – What a feeling !
I felt my feet touch the ground,
“Who are you ?” I cried out… “Who are YOU?”
“Just a friend”..it said
“From now on I tell you
You will only dance to the beat of your own soul..
And you will feel the life before you, anew”
Then, in an instant, the figure jumped into my body –
“I will never forget”, I said.
The Lessons I learned that day.
Best Regards on your journey
