There was a feeling rising up from deep inside like a slow bubbling volcano.
What was this feeling?
Where did it come from?
Why was it coming out now?
The answer was known only through a thin, misty veil
that threatened to be removed.
What if this revelation,
this expose of SELF,
this true-raw emotion,
without the limitations of
how one SHOULD feel
how one SHOULD act
What if ALL barriers were released and the pure essence of SELF,
that has always hidden inside
were openly and eagerly displayed and lived on the outside?
Slowly, the lava reaches the mouth of the volcano.
Gradually, it crests the peak and begins to
ooze down the outside slope to be exposed.
NOW that that which has been hidden is uncovered
will others do the same?
Will others open their secret selves,
break down their barriers
pull down their walls
push aside their veils?
What if there was no place to hide?
What if every thing,
and every dream
Then, the inside world would be totally displayed to the outside world.
Then, there could be no lies,
Then, there would be
pure and undiluted Self.
Thank you !
Thank you for the veils,
and the walls,
for they have given safety to the inner SELF where
feelings are too real and thoughts are too honest.
Hiding feels safe, familiar, known.
To take the risk to open the floodgates and expose the truth is UNKNOWN,
and the unknown creates FEAR.
But can an erupting volcano be stopped?
