“Of Light and Acceptance”

“Of Light and Acceptance”

Of LIght and Acceptance

Open your eyes.

The calmed hush of the forest whispers to you with love and tenderness, welcoming you. The hazy light flows in gentle streams though the leaves, playing with the texture of the undergrowth, trees and essence of life. The ground soft in spots, obstructed with twigs and hard stones in other places. You feel an internal pull, drawing you towards a pure and caring spirit. With soft eyes fill your mind with the beauty of your life, reflecting on all that is good and wholesome. Close your eyes, and give into the light and love. Let it stand guard and protect your soul from the darkness of the world.


Of all things light and acceptance.

My journey has recently experienced its biggest and most traumatic roadblock thus far, which naturally has had some very strong effects on my mental and spiritual well-being. Suddenly the open skies are clouded and moody, the green of the earth drains away leaving a colourless and lifeless wasteland. Purpose drains from your body.

And slowly, hopefully, you begin to pick the pieces of your shattered heart off the ground, and gingerly put them back in their place. Sometimes edge pieces are accidentally fitted in the center, but eventually they may make their way back to their home.
And hopefully, with those pieces finding their way back to their place of belonging, they help to reform the image of light and acceptance.

I hope you enjoy this little piece of my heart and soul.
