With the power of soul, anything is possible (Jimi Hendrix).
My Dream Drawing this week is all about "SOUL" as I reflect on who we are under the layers we have learnt, built up, hidden ourselves behind. If we peel off the layers of our body, our mind, we´ll stand there completely naked. Naked as in honest and vulnerable maybe?
Once, I did. I peeled of layer by layer as I disappeared into an ice cold "castle of loneliness" and control. I didn't eat (more than a can of tuna in water and a piece of salad) for months and as my body was peeled of layer by layer, my mind screamed until it couldn´t scream anymore. It was only darkness left.
Then life suddenly stepped in and offered me a glimpse of clarity. It was like a kind reminder of the fact that I wasn't doing this to die (that was never my intention). - You´re doing this to free yourself, something whispered. In that short moment everything was clear before darkness fell again. And I changed. For every day that small beam of light grew and in that opening I slowly, step by step, built myself up again from nothing. I returned to the path that my soul was born to walk. I felt free for the first time in my life.
This journey costed many years of time, energy and loneliness but I´m grateful for it because this journey told me about the power of my soul. I´ve doubted many things after that but never that.
Thank you for reading. I appreciate you and would love to hear about your thoughts on "SOUL". Just post a comment below.
