So tell me. Tell me, how did it feel the first time you heard another's soul cry? Don't try to act like you don't know what I'm talking about. I saw it written so well all over your face. You know. That primitive cry that comes from deep inside of you as you gaze upon the pain of another person. I saw you look around. You wanted to know if anyone noticed. No, they didn't. You know as well as I that they didn't hear it.
You also know as well as I that you are not the same. Your soul is a thousand years old. You are not the same as the others. You cannot confide in them or even dare to ask someone what just happened to you, what you just felt with a shudder of your body.
It can be a lonely road at times, but at others it is deeply satisfying. It's like you hold a secret that no one else knows. I also know that in the years ahead of you, you will try to relay the experiences of your path to others. It is usually a boyfriend, a sister, a brother. Nonetheless, it's not important. It will be someone who you feel is close to you. You'll also grow to realize the frustration of dawning realization that you have neither the vocabulary nor the power to share this experience that is yours on a daily basis.
Every minute of every day, from here on out, you will begin to see, hear and feel what others cannot. It will be entwined in your very existence and make you the person you are to become, the reason you were born onto this earth.
Understand, it's not that they don't want to share your excitement as your life takes you on this wild ride. You must square yourself with the fact that they are incapable. It doesn't mean that they love you any less or that they are somehow beneath you.
You are have simply been chosen. Feel blessed, because very few are. You have been chosen to awaken to the true meaning of life and it is so much more beautiful than you could have ever imagined.
At first, and at times in the future, you may feel as if it is a curse and I will admit that, yes, it can be very painful to bear. It never gets any easier when you hear another soul cry in pain. You must learn to be able to console it by learning to communicate on a deeper level, one without words.
Now, you must learn a few things before you can do this. The first thing you must learn is to believe. You are not crazy. You must believe that there is something much deeper than you, something much bigger playing behind the scenes.
Understand that not everything can be seen visually. You already know this. It's as I've said before. You already have the answers. You know all the answers to all of the questions that you have. They've always been there. You just forgot. This path that you are being called to is trying to help you remember.
This path is ancient and as old as your soul.
You must learn to be still, to sit with patience and quiet in your heart and mind. You have to stop struggling this way and that.
You have to let go of the pretense of control. You are not in control of anything. There are forces at play. You set them in motion with your thoughts.
Learn to let go and forgive. Forgiveness is not about the other person, but about freeing yourself. You cannot fly with such weight. You were never meant to. Remember that forgiving is not for the other person, but an act of loving yourself. Learn to accept the apology that you never got.
Understand, that it is not just in this life, but the course of many lives from now and before now.
So, I ask that you set your stubbornness aside and learn to listen with your soul. Learn the little nuances that will lead you to develop and to move forward. You don't understand now, but you will. You will. You're old as time itself; but you are still taking baby steps. You don't want to let go of what you feel is a sure thing. I can tell you that there is no sure thing. There are no guarantees. Your life here on this plane is an illusion.
No one person sees the world from your perspective. They can't. Their world is an illusion also. A world that you bring into being with your thoughts and vibration. You see, we like to think that everyone sees things exactly as we do. It’s a trick that the ego plays on us. It's not truth. No. There is no sure thing.
The sooner you understand that, the sooner we can get down to business.
You just keep running this way and that, floundering, because you know this is truth and you are afraid of what the truth is. You do not want to be unlike other people. You are afraid they will ridicule you and leave you. Let them. They are not part of this path of yours. It hurts, I know.
Do you know what hurts more?
Ignoring the soul inside of you because you have trapped yourself inside a prison of your own making. You know what I'm talking about. I know.
I've seen you put on the act. I've watched. There's not much that you can get by me. I've seen you be this person for one, that person for another.
How does that feel? Does it seem so unfair to have to behave as someone you're not just to get another's approval? Then why do you do it? Are you really that afraid of being alone? Why?
You are beautiful. Don't you see? Why not? What is in your way? It hurts me to see you so low that you cannot show the world your true face. But, I see it coming.
I want you to tell me. Tell me. What did it feel like to hear another soul cry? You know. I know you do.
