ask yourself…

Deep-Breath-by-Melanie-Weidner

 

“Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.” -Carl Jung

 

Breathe deeply.

Ask yourself…

What do you live for?

What makes your heart skip a beat?

What is your purpose?

What makes you feel alive?

What can you not live without?

Who can you not live without?

What is the legacy you want to leave behind?

Your very breath is one more at each moment

and one less in its passing

What will you always remember?

What do you wish to forget?

There is nothing more important

than your presence

being present

in the present.

Tell me,

what are your fears?

Are you living your life running from them?

Never knowing what could happen

if you chose to break the mold

not to adhere

to the ordinary.

You are beyond

You are a world within worlds

we are perpetual, yet fleeting.

I know, I know…

How it is terrifying… the unknown.

Yet, on the other side of fear

is bliss,

and not just bliss,

but understanding.

One cannot understand everything from afar

It must be

embraced before it can be released.

Nothing remains the same.

You inhale, exhale, close your eyes, open them

and its different at every moment

So ask yourself,

what can you create

while you can create?

Let gratitude envelop you

as you bestow yourself unto the world.

This is all we can do

while we can still breathe

these beautiful breaths.
