Day 103 of 365: are we all lost? – a poem

Are we all lost? Are we all living under a clever ruse- A mask we’ve adopted as our own- To protect us from the truth? The truth is pain For every single one of us; Pain that manifests in different ways: Illness, aches, emotions, mental issues. The truth is bliss For every single one of […]

Day 95 of 365: “do nothing” — advice from 90-year-old me.

I walked into the room, though the silence of my footsteps made it seem I was floating. I remember it was breezy, surprisingly breezy.

I slept a lot of hours last night and today, and it was glorious. I awoke today still feeling blah… With a weighted anxiety on my heart. I tuned into my inner wisdom and asked a question, which led to this following channeled message: “Continue to do what feels right in each given moment. The […]
