We are trying to tell the world that our body is our soul.
We found ways to fill our bodies,
Change our bodies,
Keep our bodies from aging,
Dressing younger or older depending on what we are trying to accomplish.
And then if someone is disabled we think they are less or need more help than us.
And if they are sick we get scared because it could be us.
And if they are dressed ‘better’ than us we actually think they are ‘smarter’ than us.
And a bigger house only reminds us that we are not as ‘successful’.
Yet, I am writing this and if you didn’t know me, you wouldn’t know anything about me.
All you would hear are my words.
You would feel my feelings for a moment of your life.
You would share the love I feel in writing this, as I am writing it.
Love doesn’t look like anyone.
Love isn’t meant only for some.
Love isn’t meant to be looked for,
Or “learned” how to be.
Love is open and free.
Love doesn’t have eyes or ears.
Love only has feelings and instinct.
Love protects all that comes our way
When we know enough about its freedom to let it.
I found by writing that my soul is not my body.
My heart is my soul.
My body is just the way I get around,
And everyone else too.
Your body is the car of your soul.
It takes your intentions, your thoughts, and it drives them into action.
Your body will do anything your soul will ask of it,
But your soul cannot do anything your body asks of it.
I remember most, that I always remember, what it felt like when I left someone,
More than what we looked like or where we were.
We leave with the emotions.
That is why at times when we are not dressed and our guard is down,
Those days, they seem to be the best days we have.
We are exempt from the race to be anything.
Did you notice you are least shy when you are most open?
We can take a lesson from those of us whose bodies can not do what we do,
And still, they are happy.
Their secret is the truth of their soul’s exposed.
And we too can learn
To let the body be a part of us and include our soul.
It does not have to be one or the other, we simply can understand our purpose better
When we let the truth of us show itself, rather than expecting our love from the outside in.
No one can ever walk away from an open heart.
Truth is a magnet for its strength
And truth wears no masks!
