Sometimes

A Poem by Shandra Sun
"

Life is a paradox.

"

Sometimes


Sometimes I see the ugliness around me, but I choose to look away to the beauty behind it. Occasionally I hear the dark thoughts in my head, but I choose to watch them for what they are: passing clouds in the sky of my mind, not making me sad. Once in a while I feel the tears in my throat, arising to my eyes, but I choose to allow them to flow quietly, knowing that they are just washing trapped pain away, cleansing the lies. Now and then I'm painfully aware of my imperfections, but I choose to be thankful for the inner wisdom of my physical body. There are days when I taste the bitterness of my emotions, but I choose to express them without taking them too seriously. Because I know who I am, it's easy to be friendly to the twoo dimensions of my existence and honor them both: the earthly tabernacle that enables me to feel the beauty in this convoluted world, and the inner divine spark, connecting My Self with my infinite heritage. And my heart sings: I am an expression of life, a child of The Creator of All Things.

I do not understand why im the first to remark upon this but I'll gladly be the first:) my nickname for you is so darn apt... Shandra Sun Smiles everything about what you said is so truthful and lovely and very much similar to my own feelings... to dine in and of the divine is a place so fine and to remember to be greatful for the graceful is a very important element. I often say to friends what you put in to your heart is what you will eventually give so why put hate into it there's never a shortage of hate but always a need for more love

Okay, you win! This is the best thing I've read so far in November (& I've read a ton!) I can't even find the words to say how much I love this. I love it when inspirational writing comes in the form where a person just shows us something he/she is doing which works. NOT preaching to us about what we should do or shouldn't do. Another thing I love is when writing goes into DETAIL to give us a multi-faceted picture of how this looks & feels & happens. Your examples are so well-chosen & well-stated. Finally, there isn't a word that sounds familiar, even tho this is a pretty basic & common way to look at life & to aspire to get thru the s**t of life. It's that you make it feel so unique & possible & I love how you don't make it sound all flowery or easy, you admit to the toughness of taking this path, every step of the way, there's toughness, okay, so then I just plow thru it. That is probably the most valuable advice about living that there is! This is f*****g remarkable wisdom stated in an attention-grabbing way! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie
