her cry for connection
became a scream....
••••••
Repost @taste.of.tantra ••••••
her cry for connection
became a scream
trapped under silence and empty words,
and the aching palms
of un-held hands..
her scream
has raddled its way through my flesh
since I was an infant..
& I’ve carried the silence
of space craving sound
into ceremonies in the Peruvian andes,
into the caves of my ancestors,
into the underground lairs of my own hell,
into dance parties wreaking of wild sweat & cosmic insight,
into the steady eye of the midnight moon,
into the dewy forest at dawn..
I’ve been carrying the muffled shrill scream
of an infant’s unanswered distress
in my bones..
we all walk with wounds.
we all walk with brilliance.
the only thing that truly matters
is how we relate to all these facets
of ourselves that make us radically human..
my brilliance lies
inside a traceless wound
all the way in
with  h e r -
the little girl frozen in time
with her hands outstretched until
her tears drowned her to sleep..
the thing is, genuine, integrated healing
involves the process of devoutly
inhabiting
the parts of ourselves
we most want to press away,
the parts we’re most afraid of..
because the truth is, when we inhabit them,
we give them breath
& radical permission
to exist,
& we begin to harvest the intelligence
at their core.
her silent scream
haunted the periphery of my world
until I let it point me all the way
inside
to her - to me.
she’s lived inside me
in distress
since her distress was dismissed,
& I started dismissing her.
now, she shows me
the oceans of my own wisdom.
she shows me
what connection feels like
if I only lay myself down in her world
& remember
the truth of who
she is -
of who I am..
when I inhabit her,
I remember how to live my purpose -
to lace realities with awareness,
to forge connection & radical permission
into all the spaces
that have been forgotten,
& to breathe life all the way in,
& exhale it all the way out
to dance & rage for a new world
based on true, empowered relationship
all the way
inside.
