This is for my friend, and supporter, X. :o) You know who you are.
From Christian Fabien on Facebook.
How many times must you be tricked without being treated before you learn that pretending to be someone you aren’t won’t get you what you want?
You weren’t created by counterfeit or raised by beggars, yet you masquerade from door to door, asking for handouts as if your bags are not baggage; as if sweet emptiness can fulfill and sustain you; as if the things given freely by strangers will not eventually rot your smile.
How many villages will you walk before you learn that what you want is inside of you waiting to be unwrapped? How many doors must be opened before you realize the only place to go is within? How full can you get while remaining empty? When will you realize that what you hunger for is carried by you, in you?
Will you continue to play at being the living dead while neither living nor dying each day? Or will you realize that you are you and you are enough?
There is no perfection. You are the harvest of Earth and Spirit. You can carve your own being and hollow yourself of what you don’t need. The light is already inside you, always burning.
