In order to move others deeply, we must deliberately allow ourselves to be carried away beyond the bounds of our normal sensibilities.
~ Joseph Conrad
Have you ever experienced when your mind completely lost control over you and only your senses guided you through to what turned out to be an extraordinary encounter?
That no matter how you try to get hold of your thoughts, you simply got swept away into waves of joy?
Have you ever felt an ecstatic sensation, non-depleting, but a growing, unrestrained enthusiasm that carries you to something far beyond your thoughts have ever conjured?
That you tethered to the point of consuming exhaustion; but not reaching that point? Instead, you swell rising up and your heart is ever expanding?
Have you ever touched the border of glow and be pulled in its radiant orb, not feeling suffocated, but feeling more alive than you have ever been?
That you stay in it, be in that moment… and when you step out of it, you keep and hold the lushness of your spirit, yet taking your breath away?
Have you ever…??
“unless it comes out of
your soul like a rocket,
unless being still would
drive you to madness or
suicide or murder,
don’t do it.
unless the sun inside you is
burning your gut,
don’t do it.
when it is truly time,
and if you have been chosen,
it will do it by
itself and it will keep on doing it
until you die or it dies in you.
there is no other way.
and there never was.”
~ Charles Bukowski
How much of life has taken your breath away?
