chasing the vanishing point

there is a point in time
just out of my reach
that i find myself
chasing continually.

i seem to rush and race,
lowering my head
hunching my shoulders
in an attempt to catch it.

the point is crafty,
forever just a step ahead.
it’s elusiveness leaves
me feeling depleted.

in an attempt to capture it
i ignore the present, the
moment of my greatest power.
yet i miss the point, again & again.

life is to be lived in the
here & now.
true power is living
in the present.

today, tired of chasing
the point, i beckoned it
during meditation to
join with me.

showing the point,
once elusive and unyielding,
its new place within my
heart’sย chambers.

now i am the point
of my own life.
this may sound selfish,
yet is it incredibly empowering!

please, now
won’t you join me?
the water is
quite lovely =)

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. Full recovery will take up to a year, but he’s doing wonderfully! His recovery is right on track and all the old, deep, awful pain is gone. What he has now is muscular recovery pain. What he has now is hope!

  1. Love this! Kay is right, not selfish at all. Can’t experience life if we are not present, I escaped reality intentionally for so long to avoid the pain but at a great cost. I’ll always be a dreamer to some degree but now I would rather be present even when it hurts. Now I know how to breathe! How to get to the light on the other side. ๐Ÿ˜Š Barn
