He opened me up briefly and I felt his inquiry
swooning with condescension and belief
I had swam to the other side and felt the iniquity of complacency
He fell short in my eyes but then again I remember how I had knowledge stolen from me….

I remember the calling of my life
I was one, two three, even at six….
waves and strings of vibrational desire were like wings of a time I felt slipping away fast…as a kid my confidence was stripped from me because my parents said they knew better. They had experience in these things…“Listen to me” they said.

So I started to surf, and out there I was connected to me and I took the waves that called me and I fell and got up and fell again.

But through it all the water’s salt sealed my wounds fast and I began to ride the water to my liking and I felt the bliss of all that I was becoming and satisfaction in life was present.

    Emotive image and words, Lina… and it is true that our parents’ regard impacts so completely on a child’s forming mind… It takes many, many years (and often, many conversations with friends… and/or hours alone with our thoughts!) before we can truly reject the untruths that our parents believed about us. But only WE can know our own Truth about who we are… and even then, we have to search/question/analyse very hard to find it!
    Big hugs. XOXOX

    Love this Lina, I love the story it tells; the child to the right scared to swim, that child whose confidence was stripped away, then years later taking it back from those who stole it and ready to hit the waves. The greatest wave for one to conquer in a lifetime are the waves of life.

  • I just love your comments Mui-Ling I feel your heart in the last years has grown exponentially… you are a DEAR! thank you
