Mentalmorphosis

 

It’s not always just a mental switch; sometimes it takes a bit longer for understanding to transform your heart. this piece is about the patience and hard work (like a bird building a nest out of many small pieces, or a caterpillar turning to goop in a chrysalis) required to change yourself at the core.

__

 

do you know that space in between when you understand something in your mind,
but it has yet to manifest itself as a permanent resident in your soul?

 

more and more I’ve realized that life is about building a place for head wisdom
to be reborn as heart transformation.


In the beginning, a warm nest is knit strand by strand.


then wisdom, at its highest fragility, is incubated like a seed under warm soil.


over time you begin to hear the soft knocking of a tiny beak, louder and stronger.

 

finally, heart level wisdom emerges as a fully formed creature.
it may fly from you, and impact or transform another.
