It seems to rise from deep within us….
yet maybe even beyond us….
a sadness that defies our understanding
or our very will,
a sadness that comes from a place outside of our own existence…
that engulfs us indomitably.
We who walk the Earth so gently,
know that this connection,
stronger than the gravity that holds us to her,
brings with it the knowledge of her pain
and the infinite lifetimes of sorrow.
Is this the source of our unknown sadness?
This ancient wellspring from within the heart of the Earth…
wells up and breaks forth, flowing through us,
the tears of eternity, the pain of the ancient ones,
a sadness that knows no bounds,
to be set free through us, through our hearts and eyes,
and opening us to receive the flow of awareness,
healing and a renewed potential for life.
