I feel like an onion which layers are peeled off one by one.
Also like a muddy dog that is cleaned as it leaps into a lake.
I feel like a heavily armored soldier who takes away his uniform
and weapons, until he is completely naked…. vulnerable.
I feel like a young bird that finally begins to fly, leaving behind
the nest that protected it for so long, keeping it from experiencing freedom.
Like a star that finally shines once all the clouds that covered it finally clear up in the sky.
Emptying myself, like an empty cup, in order to be filled and be who I was meant to be.
I feel like water that is freed to flow and run, after it has escaped from its
It’s scary… but liberating at the same time.
Developing my real self independent from others influence.
These are a few descriptions of how I have been perceiving my spiritual journey.
How I have been coming out of the shell of comfort and illusions,
and into the reality of the unknown … the real life.
