No. 1 of the Break Free from What Holds you Back
They rush by at the speed of light.
And they are gone.
I could not see them before.
They were like crazy cars bumping against my choices.
But I neither heard nor saw them,
though they were jamming the pathways of my mind.
in that secluded mindscape.
They sat there, like fences.
Doing nothing but blocking the view.
I did not see those either.
When I tried to see the beauty just beyond my reach.
The colors of a landscape
for which my Soul longed so much it hurt.
The crazy cars and the fences
kept my mind racing inside stagnation,
while I drove my will like a madwoman,
trying to get somewhere in a hurry.
My eyes were fixed on the horizon.
But the forces inside pulled me back.
Back to 0. Back to the same old place.
Until I Remembered.
I saw the speeding thoughts
racing through my mind,
flashes, remnants of childhood notions.
“So these are the crazy cars!”
and buried fears.
I could have laughed, but didn’t.
How could this speeding garbage keep me in a frenzy?
“It has nothing to do with me,” I said.
Then I saw the fences.
So much of what I wanted, what I was,
fenced out by habits.
Old routes I walked with raggedy shoes,
my big toe showing.
Tiny shoes no longer fitting my stature.
where my habitual discomfort kept me walking.
Once you see them, they can no longer hide.
you can let them go.
the landscape can transform.
