Thought # 12

Is it strange that I think a part of me has already died?
Is it odd that I, sometimes, believe only my shell survives and my soul lives in the beyond?
Is it wrong that the image of that departed soul that resides within me now, breathing pointlessly, craves to be reunited with that which lies beyond?
Is it normal that I feel empty from the inside when these thoughts wash over me?

    You are – therefore you feel, think, believe. Breathe. We’ve all been there and are there with you.

    I think it is perfectly normal, significant even and a time to honor (although not easy ) it’s like the seasons within. Even we need winter before spring, a farmers field much be cleared and emptied out for new seeds to be sown. Perhaps by being empty one can truly be full? A paradox?

      Perhaps, to make way for something new, we need to let the old go. Such a beautiful thought. Such hope in a paradox. Thank you! 🙂

    Not strange, not odd, not wrong at all. But not entirely normal either.
    it is, although, very common in us humans.
    And we eventually do find that missing piece. Some of us pick it up and fit it into place, and some remain oblivious to it; often by choice.
