Dance of shadows

3

In the shadows

You are dancing

On the rhythm of a music

That is not that of your soul

 

You know that

And yet you are dancing still

For you’ve understood liberation

Comes from trusting your shadows

 

After all if you have faith

In life and God

In the perfectness of universe’s plan for you

Why to fear pars of yourself?

Why to be ashamed of them?

Embrace them, explore them

Step into the dark fumes

And discover the hard truth lying underneath

 

You think yourself weak

For surrendering to what you call your human nature

And in a way it’s true

You’re giving up to life

But right now letting the current carry you

Is the only way to move forward

 

There are phases in life

When repressing shadows is invigorating

Making you feel stronger and in control

But once your path reaches a cliff and stops

There are two options, either going backward

Or jumping and losing control

Entrusting your life to the universe, to God

 

 

And once you are on hard rocks again

The fear of losing control will be forever gone

And your heart will be lighter and more luminous

For you’ll know that no matter what you do

One day or another

You always return to your true self
