The Unexplained


How do I explain the unexplainable?
How do I tell you about an experience so powerful that I am at a loss for words,
yet it asks me to speak out.
“Speak Out”, that is at its essence what occurred.
I spoke. I opened my heart, I opened my throat and the divine empty bliss of being,
and not being,
shouted out to the absolute, to the infinite,
“I am here, I am no where, I am whole, I am empty, and for this moment,
All of Creation”.
There is a place that has no boundaries no walls no limits it is the all and nothingness of being,
it is the surrender of the will, and yet,
it is the very creation of that will 
the power of being a goddess.
A glimpse of being a goddess for a moment in time, or out of time.
A veil lifted, and I became the essence of all that is and became free.
The ecstatic pleasure of giving up, of saying
“Yes I release everything that I have held onto,
everything that has kept me a prisoner in a body that longs to be free.
The courage to die in a moment of exalted bliss
to be empty and allow a power like no other to consume and take me.
There for a moment I was touched by the divine and there for the moment I was home.”
