There was this girl, with big brown eyes that told no lies. They were the mirrors to her soul, as all eyes are. Eyes of innocence and wisdom that saw what anyone else could see. Penetrating, inquisitive, “you’re not fooling me” eyes. They spoke the language of symbols, saw beyond words, actions, behaviour, fear and longing. They gazed through you, seeing you for who you really are, were, and always have been. Those were silent eyes, not wishing to embarrass you, to expose your foolishness, your fears and your pride.
They were wondering eyes, saw it all, and still wondered: why?
They wanted to dive deep into your soul and live there, forever. To be innocent and wise, to not fight between the two. They wanted to believe but not be fooled, truth seekers, they were. To break through the ego wall, see your shadow, get pass it, and find your soul, you, as a whole. The bits that you no longer remember about yourself, all your wishes, dreams, beliefs, that you think you forgot, but are still there, hidden in a dark corner of your mind, where you put them when you were only a little boy. They want to see those bits, connect with them, embrace them with all their heart, free them, put a smile on your face and joy in your eyes.
You might believe they are gone forever, but they are not. They are just waiting for your permission to be free, expressed, embraced, cherished, and loved.
Just like you…
The girl with the big brown eyes that told no lies saw all that and she decided to stay. That’s what you feared the most, and that’s why you left.
