Something great happened today
and it was phenomenal in every way.
I did a Soul Glyphs drawing for myself
because it came to me to no longer leave that gift on a shelf
but bring it out so that others might feel
its healing powers, and know they are real.
And what happened from that moment to now
was an experience of such magnitude I’m in awe at how
God/the Universe works when we are ready to see
and how all doors open that previously closed seemed to be.
I knew that a Soul Glyphs drawing always has healing energy within
and I knew I must honor that and just begin
to make the drawings available for whoever is ready
to know themselves from a place not heady
and who wants to heal all that gets in the way
so that the false sense of separation is cleared without delay.
In the process of offering this gift
I, myself, had a monumental shift
as in my own drawing a penguin I saw
and knew there was something important on which to gnaw.
As I searched the internet for the metaphysical meaning, what came
was a story of a young child whose nickname was the same.
But that child is no longer on this earth
having transitioned only a few years after his birth.
And on a blog his mother had written the meaning
of the penguin and as I read, tears were streaming,
for you see, penguins teach how to embrace
all realms of life, and all of the human race.
And the black and the white teach merging of the hidden with the known
and balancing the dark with the light, and not throw a stone.
And what I knew in every cell of my being
is that I am willing no longer to live my life seeing
a separation, a duality, of evil and good
because in that moment I felt I could
understand that it is all the same
and when I set about assigning blame
I am actually dividing myself against me
because I contain both equally.
I’ve been struggling with this thing of evil for many a day
and couldn’t quite understand why such irritation I did display
at the bombardment of negativity coming my way.
But now I know it was simply preparing me for the time
when I would understand and write this rhyme.
