“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!
