Listen to the Voice Within

Continue to rummage stories to find what's true,
Not all that we're told is done with honesty.
~Listen to the voice within when in doubt~
To move forward, search for clarity before going through,
Everyone has their own way of finding what their life is about,
It's important to recognize our response-ability.
With truth and dignity, life will smoothly continue.

My Past Stands Behind Me: Spoken Word

My past stands behind me.
An illumination that guides,
No longer a shadow that haunts,
A reminder to never again choose to hide.
~My past stands behind me~
A constant force inside,
Now a light that isn't here to taunt,
The child in me with whom I can confide.
My past stands behind me,
A strong support in my present reality.

Does Security Bring Tranquility?

Though people strive for security in their lives, I question if security will bring a person tranquility in the long run.

Security is the feeling that makes us think we’re free from danger and people strive for it by trying to gain as much control over their life. The search for control often negates the natural changes that are beyond our control and our right to not-knowing that welcomes the wonder of life.

Tranquility is the state of calmness and peace. I’ve come to believe that this must be achieved internally. Despite the control we can gain externally, our spirit isn’t at peace when what surrounds us doesn’t align with who we are.

In my experience, security is a fleeting feeling when I don’t strive to be conscious of where I am in the big picture. Security is calming until the aura of misalignment catches up to me. These are the times when fear reawakens to slow me down, assist me to awareness and get grounded once more.

There is always one being that we must work with and get to know in order to achieve tranquility and feel a lasting security, and that person is our self, inside and out. I’d like to encourage the world to drop their need for control, accept the wonder of not-knowing, stay conscious of their spirit in all tasks and appreciate the joy of life and growing. Inner tranquility will bring you security, just be prepared to follow the journey wherever it leads. It’s definitely worth the effort!
