One Man's Steps to Connection
by Gwydion Ap Alder
Age Group: Adult
Walking slowly tentative each step a struggle, he struggles against fear and his Ego’s efforts to protect.
Stepping out, eyes fixed upon the ground, movements delayed, trembling with a huge dread of loss.
Loss of safety, loss of protective cocoon, loss of the “Old Ways” that have kept things “SAFE” for so long.
These “Old Ways” that insured safety but also bound his spirit so tightly that it could not LIVE nor GROW.
Grey days and nights made up of convention’s strict regimented way of thinking left him so sad and empty.
Until one day into his life there came a bright heart that called to him, a heart singing a new song of LIFE LIVED!
So that his greyness seemed now to him even emptier, and he began to desire MORE, began to FEEL and GROW.
But now his FEAR increased and Ego screamed at him to STOP, to CEASE now his growing for it is DANGEROUS!!!
Very Dangerous to FEEL, to DESIRE, and to LIVE seeking freedom for self-directed thoughts and authentic actions.
To love himself, to live within the authenticity of his feelings terrified him for it was anathema to his Conventions.
Conventions that have told him he is not enough, that he is unworthy, that he does not deserve to be LOVED!
Lies and half-truths, Ego’s tricks and Conventions rules, Ego’s staunch ally to keep him locked up, a motionless prisoner
Prisoner to his own deep-rooted fears and self-generated Ego-based lies with their tight hold upon his self-perception.
But he is ENOUGH, he is WORTHY, and DESERVES all that’s whole and free and good in LIFE, if he but chooses to WALK.
His path is long, tough to travel, and needs must be walked through his own power leaning upon no-one and nothing.
But he does have a close companion, one that LOVES who he IS, one that truly strives to SEE and rejoice in his GROWTH.
This blessed ally, who can reflect with him, providing gentle guidance and feedback for this walk along his path.
Though alone upon his path as each of us must be, he is not alone upon his journey, for his ally is close at hand.
But... just as in his walk towards freedom, his power to progress, power to BECOME and GROW all reside solely within.
All depends upon his willingness to communicate openly with his ally and share in truth his feelings and struggles.
For he now has the choice to walk and to continue walking, overcoming his fears and conventions to truly BE FREE!
Or he can turn back and walk into the greyness that has possessed him so long and fade away into sad regret.
May Harmony Find Him!
Blessed Be..) O (
