For Me

Today, I have nothing to say. Truly. Nothing. No words to spark. Illuminate. Catch fire in your soul and let you shout out your divine truth. I have none of that. No magic to share. Not today. Today I have me. I have me in a place of stillness. Today I have my Self.

Today, I long to wrap myself up in words. My words. But not to share. Not to heal. Just to be in the wild, juicy possibility that words carry for me. There is freedom in that place. Freedom in doing things just for me. Without thought of if they make sense for anyone else. Without the pressure of right or wrong. Without the wondering of where to begin. Today, I take my words back. I give them to myself. I let myself write whatever comes, even if it doesn’t make sense. It matters to me. I understand them. I can let myself fail. There is freedom here.

Failure is just my way of saying that I don’t care. I don’t care how this sounds. How the words flow. I don’t care it moves people to the peaks of truth and depths of their being. This may not be the post that people print out and hang up. It may not be what readers remember, pin, like, share. This is for me. Not for anything else. It is what brings me back to the space inside where inspiration and light dance, bringing forward my truth. For me. So that I can once again play in the fire of who I am. I am willing to laying down the need for validation. For praise. I am willing to experience the rapture of the creative moment, without any need for it to be more than that.

I cannot force it. I cannot make the words come out in special ways to please anyone else but myself. Perhaps, not even that…not even myself. It’s the process that delights. The process of letting go of the expectations and allowing myself the freedom to be where I am. To not care if it makes sense. To let go of the desire for this to be my magnum opus…and simply remember the joy that comes when words pop into my mind and announce themselves on the page. That is what sparks me. What lets more and more words come. That is what removes any blocks that stand in the way of the desire to share the wisdom that rises from my belly and mellows in my heart.

When I give in. Give in to the desire to let go of expectations…when I write for me, for no one else, the fire comes present once again. The words flow as I like them to. And maybe, just maybe, the next time the words will be for you too.
