“Naked and Unafraid”


“As the eagle, freed from its cage, soars to its native heights, so the soul, freed from the home of heavy flesh, will rise, and return unto its Father’s house, naked and unafraid.”

~ Ernest Holmes ~

The Science of Mind

Oh, to be unafraid in my nakedness

to be freed from worldly blunders

I face myself in a mirror

Am I the person I wanted to be while my feet walked the ground

or did I make excuses based on happenings?

Am I expressing the desires of my soul

or am I allowing a stranger

to guide my walk in this earthly plane?

Is it not our responsibility

to honor the authentic longings of our soul?

Shall we become imposters

living a reality with no road map

driving and making turns

based on other people’s directions?

No, not I!

Not any longer

I feel my passenger become the driver

I feel my soul rise up

and demand to be given the reins

Yes, sweet soul

I am sorry I delegated you to the role of onlooker

I thank you for your patience

But now that you have been given the opportunity to lead

I feel so free

I feel a heavy burden…

that of living someone else’s life

has been lifted

I bow to your feet

In perfect love

I honor your presence

and I will be your faithful servant

Oh, to live an authentic life…

naked and unafraid…

In this lifetime…

will be amazing

will be a gift!

  1. Lorrie, you have written my life today….from misguided meandering to joyful soul surrender. Love and light to you for this loving reminder of the peace and perfection that has always lied deep within.


    1. I am your east coast clone!! 🙂 I can’t tell you how many times what you write is EXACTLY me!!! Much love to you…I pray for you to have a wonderful holiday week…and to be mindful of the things you are thankful for!! ❤


  2. “Is it not our responsibility to honor the authentic longings of our soul?”
    –I am all for authenticity. A life not lived as ones own is a life not lived.
    Good for you Lorrie, not bowing down to the expectations of others, or living as they would have you to.
    I really like this quote you chose as well. I think of the body as simply a tent. I am not my body, I have a body. I am a spiritual being. From dust I (my body) was made, and to dust I’ll return (again the body). However, just as the quote above, I (my spirit) will return to the one that breathed life into my body.
    Love it.
    🙂 ❤


    1. Oh Staci…thank you so much for adding such conviction to my post! Yes…I believe the same…we are spiritual beings. I honor this body as my temple that houses my spirit, but my soul will live forever! Your beautiful spirit shines through every word you write. I am so grateful that we have connected here! ❤ ❤ Much love to you!

  4. Sweet Lorrie you are so truly blessed with talent. You write in such a way that it speaks to whomever is reading it. You also write in a way that only someone that has experienced it could write it. Most of the time when I come and read what you have written…I think…how did she know this about me. 🙂 Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving sweet Lorrie. Hugs


    1. Oh, Mags! Thank you dear soul for your beautifully kind words…I am touched to the core of my heart!! Your words are such a huge compliment to me because I long to have them reach people…and give them comfort. Thank you so much…and I hope your Thanksgiving was full of love and blessings! ❤
