My dearIn the midst of strife, I found there was, within me, an invincible love.In the midst of tears, I found there was, within me, an invincible smile. In the midst of chaos, I found there was within me, an invincible calm.In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me, there lay, an invincible summer. And, that makes me happy. For it says, that no matter how hard the world pushes against me, within me, there?s something stronger?~ Albert Camus
?Stepping out from chaos into the lightto know, understand, to find meaning in the abstruse, the absurd which helps to minimize strife, internal and external with a patient, conscious, mindful heart actively reflecting, engaging, a soul-sourced voice.
?Bring a desire to exceed the mundane, outside of fear, of chaosto grow exponentially, creatively an equanimous entwining, a knowing.
?Tears wane, with this stronger voice, which is founded in idealism with right intentions, speaking, writing about alternative wayswith the Great Mother and the Old Wise Man of our collective consciousness, with the honouring of creative potentials of individual offerings, of less restricted potential.
?Cleansing the heart against the disease of winter, the archetypal Trickster, of absurdity, chaos, dark, profane shadowseven stints in the desert, where the air suffocates and stifles ? drying the voice, the heart and the soul ? we persevere.?
The realization that life is absurd and cannot be an end, but only a beginning. This is a truth nearly all great minds have taken as their starting point. It is not only this discovery that is interesting, but the consequences and rules of action drawn from it.~ Albert Camus
?Toward fertile ground, the light, the order where there was chaostoward summer awakenings, a playful practical pragmatism on the black earth, in lush forests, the expansive ocean of flexible yet durable transformations.
?An interplay of resisting, of letting gowith turquoise seas of what could beand some revolution before what is going to be/to take a stand, with awareness, with love, calm, we can stand up with a stronger pushing back, bravely, for even more.~ namast, Leah J. ?
