There is gratitude in standing there, staring at a flower, and observing its intricacies. Appreciating all the details and embracing its ability to reveal itself openly. Likewise, there is gratitude in standing there, staring at oneself and observing all the intricacies. Appreciating all the details and embracing the ability to reveal oneself openly.
Many fear vulnerability and this brings instability as it relates to romance and the other emotional aspects of life. What is to feel and let it go unseen? The words, like a flower blocked by overgrown shrubbery, comes to mind. However, subjectivity ponders about the validity of that previous sentence as the thought that some humans lack the sensations of truly feeling things drifts into view. Disorders prevent that experience and in some cases, removes it from one's existence.
Moreover, objectivity produces this question.
Perhaps, for those who can experience the waves of emotion crashing on sandy shores, a little more time placing gratitude upon this ability may make the difference? As a human, the desire to get rid of certain emotions pervaded now and then over many years. The sadness from a first heartbreak or blind rage from being provoked. The yearning and longing attached to old ideas of love or that feeling of deep disappointment when things veered away from the ending expectation assumed.
Nevertheless, gratitude for feeling it all, even when at the lowest point, still shined a light and illuminated the reality of life, living, and spiritual growth. It also strengthened an appreciation to feel, sometimes more than others, sometimes less. However, to feel regardless. To fall in love or become consumed by the wonderment of joy. To cry while soothing one's soul with a decadent bowl of non-dairy chocolate ice cream. These beautiful human moments which most importantly allow one the chance to sit there and be completely open with oneself.
When oneness comes within, then it comes without the intention of pruning that flower but instead to trim the overgrown shrubbery that blocks the sunlight.
So, be that flower and let that detailed beauty show by opening thy soul to consciously feeling, then working towards reaching deeper within and feeling a little more until balance and healing comes in the form of the sunlight and water a flower needs to survive.
