Transforming Experiences


Transforming Experiences

What is life without death on earth?
How can we ever see the light without falling through the dark pits of hell
How can we ever experience freedom without first being a sufferer of condemnation
Then how do we ever see clarity through the midst of confusion
Without cloudiness we can never break away from the chains of recklessness
Melancholy is the ever powering force that takes our breath away

Through the despair and the hopes of treasurable gold, we have yet to cross that path
That leads to awareness; yet we will never fully escape the gloom of yesterday and tomorrow
We will continue to strive for peace at the core of our misery
On the way we may take the wrong path that teaches us lessons to endure
But we fall short because our rugged circumstances prevents us from being whole
In order for us to embark on the voyage of becoming complete, we must work with the broken pieces
We must embrace the past along with the pain
Although the road that leads to greater light is far reaching and narrow

It is our willingness to be open and to fill in our shattered gaps with courage and longings for something more
We can learn to trust our own uncertainty; thus delving into the unknown where possibilities are in our reach
By not regressing away from our strengths for they are our own and very useful to humanity
We can grip as well as welcome our weaknesses in order to grow

The journey’s end is not of significance as much as the journey itself
Not controlling and accepting reality and others for what is, we can alter our attention away from details and enjoy viewing life in a broader framework.
We persevere and take on challenges in overcoming our brokenness
So that we can transform it to our life’s purpose and towards serving others!
In the hopes of finding our ourselves….

so true to what u are saying... each one of us shall never be truly free until death arrives... then the rebirth of self while in the company of the almighty will be a beautiful thing... yes everlasting life while serving him... on the real our daily ups and downs is part of life... still there is so much for one to intake and experience as the years go by... i guess all need not question so much, and go with the flow... in summary glad to see another soul allowing the ink to drizzle in a spiritual way...

Your level of spiritual understand is very deep that Transforming Experience is God given but not all receive it. Very nicely expressed.
