I am not I
I am this one
walking beside me whom I do not see
whom at times I manage to visit,
and whom at other times I forget,
The one who remains silent, when I talk.
The one who forgives, sweet, when I hate.
The one who takes a walk when I am indoors.
The one who will still remain when I die.
Juan Ramón Jiménez
A reminder to check in with my Soul regularly.
I am a Soul surrounded by a rental of skin and bones. I use Prayer, reading the Bible, mindfulness, nature, my Bride and my Sons to connect with my Soul and its Creator. My Soul is the only part of me that will last. What ripples I leave behind in helping others in a safe way is my goal. It feels good to check in to the real me, inside, which I wish to shine out. No matter what others may TRY to ‘do to me or make me feel’, my Soul is the part they do not get to easily, I will protect my peace by any means. Stephen.
