Learning To Be Free

โ€œDance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.โ€โ€•ย Rumi

Day 17’s prompt was to write about which stage we are in in correlation to the above quote, and to write in the Cascade form. I am not sure which stage I am in currently. I am in and out of each one so often that it’s hard to know at times. Sometimes, I am several at once, and sometimes, I think, I am none of them. I just am. Currently, I am learning to be still and listen to those who, like Rumi, found joy and peace and wisdom by learning to be still and listen to the voice within. I am beginning to learn how to be “perfectly free.”

 

A Revelation

By Jesi Scott

 

Consciousness breathes life into existence;

Reality exists only when we open our eyes-

I am a god awakening.

 

Our perceptions color the world around us;

What we think becomes our truth-

Consciousness breathes life into existence.

 

But are our perceptions substantial?

Like dreams, they are not absolute-

Reality exists only when we open our eyes.

 

I dreamt a world into being, and with

That power came powerful responsibility-

I am a god awakening.
