Flight of the Soul

Flight of the Soul


A Revolution Takes Place in the Heart

posted by Melanie Lutz

It mattered not if others understood
The deepening of his experience grew
To the point he knew
The ache was not meant to go away
It was a part of his essence

It was the ache of the mature open heart
Living with the hurts of the instant
Working beyond the threshold of gravity
Allowing the natural expression of love to flow through him
Fully at play
Free from any confinement

Stretching across time and space
So Far Away
His beloved felt all of it
Sitting on the shore of the lake
On which they had spent so much time together

She spoke into his dearest heart
The part he had gifted her
Even though she said “No” to his offer to join him

“What I am living
Here is very tough
for my soul… nothing nice to share and too much
negativity… so,
I don’t think about it. I don’t think about it. I don’t think about it…
but I have to accept
this part of me too.
This part of me that doesn’t think it deserves a life of its own
That doesn’t deserve anything
So, here I am”

Like the kiss of an Angel
The flutter of gallant beautiful wings bursting into air
The King Fisher emerging triumphantly
Rippling free from the Lake’s surface stillness
Shaking off the water from its latest dive
Breaking into a new day

Feeling the rush of air of her beloved warming her
She watched the King Fisher soar away into the blues

She knew
She had chosen without care for her own heart
No more
She was choosing again

“Your love is lifting me up, it is flowing into my wings…
caressing a little my feathers ..
I can feel the wind…and I start to fly

Every material density with a specific weight over the air cannot reach me…
It is so beautiful this experience to be a flying bird looking at the
Density of the world from my belly
..Such a fresh air l can breathe from here… l am keeping compact my
Feathers..  the hair is playing
With the wind.  so light experience.”

Freedom
Offered

Tonight
Would be her last
In this place that was not her home

Love was beckoning
Calling her through the fire of her being

The shell of her existence cracking
With a fierceness of resolve
Expanding now without reserve

She asked
As she started her journey
To her beloved
Strengthen my wings
Bring me light
For my flight

 

A revolution takes place in the heart. It begins by saying enough. Enough of the behavior that keeps me stuck on the shore. There are so many ways that we hold ourselves back from the truest expression of love and joy flowing into and through our lives. Ask yourself to what end and release your soul to flourish and thrive. It is the most you can do for those you love and the planet as a whole.

Lots of Love,

Melanie
