“What begins to emerge within oneself is a profound discovery…” – Te’
How do we begin to know ourselves?
The longing deep inside our soul to belong.
I believe it is a highly personal journey…
To discover our own soul.
To recognize the essence of who we are.
No where along the beginning of my journey
did I fully see how one was to go about finding oneself.
The more that I lived out my days.
Following seemingly long treks into my past,
did I come to see that I was emerging…
By my daily practice of being with my sacred self.
Through my morning writing.
Moments of meditation and yoga stretches.
More writing, about my dreams and simple pleasures.
My days began to fill with gratitude.
I began to strike up a rhythm with my breath.
My breathing brought me into the present moment.
What began to emerge within myself was a profound discovery…
Each of us at some point in our lives
begin to search for what lies “within” us.
Breaking through the barriers of self doubt,
numerous fears and feelings of failure…
become treasures of self discovery
waiting to emerge.
In these moments of self reflection
especially when we begin our day
can be a very enriching experience.
Enriching in the sense that we can create magic.
That we can celebrate triumph in our lives.
So many friends along the journey
of my “souljourn” blessed my life
as they continued to believe in me.
They held me up with their love and
gentle reminders of who I am.
Especially during my darkest hours.
My wish, my prayer for you is that as you journey to your soul,
that you honor your sacred self as you emerge!
