At The Bottom Of My Psyche

There are moments
where I feel that I have
tapped into something bigger
something more than just
my personal feelings

As though
at the bottom of my own emotions
exists a door

I swim right down to the bottom of my psyche
down into the universal ocean of emotion
that is surging beneath.

Everything ever felt
exists here

and it pours through me
I am its conduit
aware and
I feel
it all

I thrash my way to the surface
up away from that huge
encompassing ocean

breathless and overwhelmed
I emerge to float upon the surface

staring up with gratitude
at the light

Hi Susannah,

Sometimes we do get those overwhelming feelings, don't we, or belonging to something so much greater than ourselves and yet, is part of us.

And often we don't know what to do about those experiences, how to channel and manifest them in our everyday that promote positive change in ourselves and others. Cheers!
