"Before you speak,
let your words
Is it true?
Is it necessary?
Is it kind?" I'm coming to understand that feelings are just visitors. Some are gentle, with spirits that are soft and kind. Others are full of negativity that is not only toxic but also enthralling. Those are the visitors that make you forget what it’s like to actually feel freedom, carelessness, and pure and utter happiness. When you are craving to drink from the nectar of lucidity, there will be visitors that refuse to allow the magic to catch you. Keep chasing the magic, even when the visitors try and hold you back. Allow yourself to be cradled by the gentle embrace of an untouched imagination, even when they try to stop you. Although at times I may be sad, or feeling pain, there is absolutely no reason that I have to suffer. I do not have to hold on to my anger, and everything else that is trying to hold me back. Everything I need is already within me. Now, there's nothing wrong with letting these visitors stop by every now and then, but we must learn to let them go.
I am learning to let these visitors them come and go.
