O U R V O Y A G E (in gratitude)
what if there comes a point when you have to let an old version of yourself go?
a point when you may not be ready for it.
a point when you are called to grieve that self that is ready to move on before you acknowleged it even exisited, before you were aware it was time to part?
a point where you leave an open seat for the emerging + evolving self to arise.
a point when emotions you never knew existed rise.
a point where emotions you once held close release on their own.
T H I S must be the point when higher self has stepped in because it heard your call.
this point must be true surrender because you as you know yourself is not in control of the process.
+ you are grateful for this voyage.

Does a leaf, when it falls from the tree in winter, feel defeated by the cold? The tree says to the leaf: ‘That’s the cycle of life. You may think you’re going to die, but you live on in me. It’s thanks to you that I’m alive, because I can breathe.
Dear Dying Self,
