Spirits’ growth

Our spirits are not made of the foamy, smoky substance I thought they were made from

Instead they are built, grown like cities sprouting from clay and from rock

They have an infinite capacity to grow and evolve within the frame of their soul imprint

And yet they are slow, desperately slow to change form

Understanding must be carved in hard stone before new buildings appear, older ones collapse carried away by the nearby river

And that cannot happen overnight as I thought, as I hoped

There are layers after layers of memories and blockages and fears to dig through

Every time the same process must be repeated, digging through the dirt, uncovering a ruined temple or a few stones, exploding the hard layer of hardened clay that has formed underneath

And down to another layer before a new, partial understanding is reached

Always partial, never complete

Sometimes this process becomes desperately slow, desperately tiring

Why can’t an earthquake or a giant wave speed it up?

Why do we have to dig all the way through with our own fingers?

Once I thought that anger and determination could do wonders, I thought it only was a question of willpower

But now I understand that these cities have lives of their own, that at the image of plants and trees following the cycle of seasons, buildings take the time they need to sprout and form a hard bark before to give fruits and offer their shelter
