Awakening + Enlightenment
I feel so raw from all the spiritual lessons I have learned.
Each lesson feels like barnacles being
scraped off the bottom of an old boat.
Every day I pray I am done learning.
And every day I am confronted with the answer no.
Doubt creeps in. Insecurities flare up.
I am required to grow, to expand.
To learn. To teach.
There are no shortcuts on a spiritual journey.
The choice is to grow or stagnate.
I chose to grow.
No matter how much pain I need dredge up.
