The Angels remind us that it’s our responsibility to not only remember the past, but to work to understand it too, so that we do not keep repeatedly hurting each other, generation after generation. It starts with us. It starts today.
The Angels remind us that this world needs us, in all our glory, all our shame, all our joys, and all our pain. There is no need to hide behind perfection; we are asked only to come as we are, and give what we can.
What are you purging,
What need not be part of you anymore
That it so forcefully releases
Like fireworks in the night sky
Within the heart of your own being?
What pain can you let go,
What ancient past emerging
Asks not to be still buried
But rather to be free,
Out of the cave of your belly
And into the light to be atoned
Its particles scattering to the Universe
Becoming the fodder for your growth
Instead of caged rebellion,
Becoming the light
Which feeds your soul
The Angels remind us that flow is a part of our being, our very fabric. We aren’t meant to fight it, and yet we do, creating much pain and suffering for ourselves. Today, let go, even just a little bit. Become the flow of life and experience the peace it brings.
When did they first clip your wings?
When did you go to fly,
Like you’d done so many times before
And instead of soaring,
Fell, lifeless, to the ground?
When did you learn that flying high
Is too threatening for some,
So you shouldn’t – you didn’t – fly at all?
And when did that moment come,
When the pain of not flying,
The phantom pain of forgotten wings,
Became too much to bear?
When did you no longer have a choice but continue to suffer
Or uncover that which had seemingly been lost,
To delicately unfold those withered wings,
Longing for devotion,
And see if they could still hold
The weight of your dreams?
The Angels remind us that this too shall pass. In time, we will see it’s just a blip in the big picture of eternity. It’s painful, yes, and frightening at times. Yet time is not ours to hold onto, but ours to flow with, in compassion and love.
