LONELINESS: THE QUIETEST EXPOSION

One of the most beautiful, bittersweet things I’ve read in a long time….

SUMMER STARTS TO SHINE

Loneliness is the quietest explosion you’ll ever [not] hear

It explodes peacefully in never-ending waves; breaking against the shoreline of our hearts

There is no sound of exploding on the outside

The sound is all on the inside

We are alone and at one with that sound

The hurt sits concealed and contained under our sagging skin

No one knows we are feeling lonely, unless we say we are

But we don’t say we are, do we

Loneliness is something which is felt, but rarely expressed or shared

Maybe you can imagine I’m lonely by the bowed head, the down-turned once sparkling now grey eyes, the way my shoulders slump and my wrists turn inward- protecting myself, not letting anybody in; because we don’t expect anyone to want to be let in

PLEASE LIKE AND SHARE THORUGHOUT THE NORTH-EAST AND BEYOND XXX

People of the North-East. Please help me track down my ‘angel of the north’ who helped me through my PANIC ATTACK at the Tyne Tunnel toll booths yesterday at approx. 1pm when I was en route to a meeting in South Shields.

You did everything *perfectly* to help get me through that horrendous experience, and I genuinely don’t know how I would have coped in that traumatic and terrifying situation without your AMAZING altruistic support.

PLEASE SHARE THIS POST AS WIDELY AS YOU CAN THROUGHOUT THE NORTH-EAST AS I WANT TO FIND THIS WOMAN AND PERSONALLY THANK HER!!!

I told my story about you and how you helped me…

ACROSS THE UNIVERSE

 

Inspired by a conversation with the excellent Amanda Lyle:


"THE TRAVELLER"

Comfy in kaftan?
It's Astral Projection time.
The Traveller smiles.

All is One is All.
Existence Precedes Essence?
Theosophy's Rules. 

And so it begins.
Tourist at the speed of soul?
Via Lacteae.

They pass all as one:
Each a sun to its children.
Every Star is Yours.

The sweet, primal hum 
Of the sweet, hugging Cosmos. 
Powerful; gentle.

To the Hub and back:
Twenty-six thousand light-years
In half a heartbeat.

Slowing to silence.
Transparent to Transcendence. 
Earth-fall is achieved.
