The Call of the Dragon

What is it to be in this place of torment, in the mind,
In suffering but the human way?
What is it to love with conditions and place the weight of the world on ones own shoulders, or perhaps another’s?
What is it to feel so much that emotions overlap, rise and fall with each other?
What is it to be here in this body- even if you make mistakes and fall down
Time and time again?
What is it but being human?- Choosing to learn, grow and turn up as authentically ourselves.
The balance of giving and receiving, pushing and flowing, being human and divine, being in love and grieving… all at once.
We owe it to ourselves, to those who came before us, and to those who are after us to LIVE…. live- open and feel.
It is a courageously open soul that dares to feel all, and forgive all of the imperfections within ourselves and others
And dive into the space of truth, to feel the core of the soul burning so bright
That nothing can dull the love and light within, despite what is happening in life at that moment.
Nurture that inner flame, become that fire and listen to the call to breathe life and potent connection back into the world.
