Occurs like a corkscrew.

With each turn of the key,

we press down further

into the cork,

piercing down through

a new layer that may

seem to have been

visited before.

Grief closes what

gratitude opens.

This is how I view healing the layers of suffering. In some ways it is the same thing, yet it is a new layer that is being seen, felt and healed. Gratitude for the new awareness is a lovely catalyst for the healing. Sometimes it can feel like we’re saying, “thank you, may I have another?” Once the cork is removed, we breathe freely again. 

Thank you Mary Cathleen Clark for your support!

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

  1. And we also recognize old, destructive thinking patterns for what they are, are better able to remind ourselves, and are able to then change their course! Loved this.

  2. I do know that it feels like a corkscrew and you are only exposed to new painful healing once the previous layer is cleared – I am with you there. Is it really possible for the cork to be removed – will we really drink the wine again T?

  3. I have read this like ten times. I was going to say that you last line was my favorite, however it it all so true. A corkscrew, wow, piercing! I am learning to be more humble, to really hear what she is saying, it is so hard at times, but I want us, JoMell and I, to heal together. Hmmmm, might be a poem in there, pardon me while I take some notes 😊Ken
