I am an observer of life by nature. Even as a child, I spent hours in solitude observing and thinking (according to my mom). While going to my physical therapy sessions, I have been able to meet and observe many of the people working very hard to heal their body. This experience inspired this poem.
Eternal Fibers of the Soul
Broken promises, broken dreams
Broken bones, broken links.
Stretched fibers of the soul,
Ligaments of faith, wisdom, and hope.
Pieces coming together,
Bits of healing, bits of pain,
Bursts of living, crying, hustling
Not in vain.
Blind hope turns to faith,
Reviewed, renewed, redone,
Outstretched but not undone.
Fibers of humanity
Flesh and bones
All in one, one in all.

Have you ever read something and felt alive, inspired? Have you listen to music that has captured your soul, and touch every fiber of your heart? Read a poem or looked at a painting that transported you to unexplained heights? All these are examples of creations. We are human, but also spiritual, and the need to create is embedded in us; it is our spiritual nature. We give to others thru our creativity, we create to inspire, to please, to entertain, to love …
My spiritual path has been one of investigation and of finding the divine thru a non traditional approach. In order to find true spirituality, I had to put aside everything that I have learned about it, and start fresh, with the intention of finding my true spiritual path. It has not been easy, it still is not; I keep learning every day.
We all have a purpose, it is up to us to find it. However, there is creativity on each one of us. Divinely inspired I have learned that creation is like water, it gives life; it is the fountain of the spirit – the myrrh of the soul, the soul’s path to spiritual closeness. It is contentment and happiness for our souls, and we can find it by being happy where we are, by listening, and be perceptive to our spiritual awareness. When we feel happy where we are and we make happiness an internal issue, separate from outside circumstances, we are receptive to the divine and we fuel the creative forces within our soul. This is how we give to others and we bless our surroundings with our soul’s creations. By giving back we thank the Great Creator.
And how would a Creator see its creation? How do we feel when we create something that we are so proud of? In the eyes of God all his children are good, in the eyes of the man, the children are limited by the limits they establish themselves. To God, there are no limits, and his children are precious – more precious than the treasures of the Universe. When we give back through creation, we are acting thru the same love that made us.
