Truth Seekers

You know, yesterday was another one of those days when my humble meter went off the charts. Michele Lee Sefton was so gracious to give me a heads up that she was going to post a mention on her blog about my book, but yet again I was blown away like Wylie Coyote on the cartoon “Road Runner” by the heartwarming review she wrote. I felt especially connected to her post, “Truth Seekers” which resonated so intimately with me. πŸ™πŸΌ

So today, I am reblogging her post because I wanted to absorb the deep essence of her message, β€œTruth Seekers” that I hope you will read or revisit if you haven’t yet.

As I said and echoed from her message, “NO Shallow swimming. NO Shallow breathing. NO Shallow connections. NO Shallow living! NO purposeless paddling! While we may become exhausted, we don’t give up!” Thank you Michele for empowering us with your word. πŸ₯°πŸ’ͺ🏼😘

My Inspired Life

In this day-to-day automated existence, too many people skim the surface. It is safer there. Plenty of time is spent skimming, but less purpose and commitment is found there. Less knowing and truthfulness too. Shallow swimming. Shallow breathing. Shallow connections. Shallow living. But in the depths, swim the truth seekers, where things are murky, where one can’t tell if the hand stretched in front of them is their own, or someone else’s.

Some seekers know no other way, for it is in the murkiness where they drew their first breath. Swimming with the masses, fiercely paddling, would be their death. They have learned to relax in the undercurrent, to trust in its changing direction. They are tested by diving deeper, but it is there where life is richer.

  3. Thank you, Kymbelina, for sharing my post and for wanting to linger a bit longer with my message. Introducing your book was a privilege for me. Your work on this project, that has spanned years, offers a unique perspective on poetry. I am excited for you and can’t wait to follow your progress on where this collection of poems, and the thoughts contained within, will take you. πŸ’– (copied from my post, where I first saw your message)

  4. Michele’s post was inspiring, and, I think, comes for us all at just the right time. It’s important to be reminded that growth does not stop, it continues, iterates, and is always changing. If we, as I do sometimes, get stuck in thinking we are in some way done with growing, we’ve missed it. Thank you for re-sharing, my kindred. Happy Sunday! πŸŒ»πŸ‚πŸŒΉβ€οΈπŸ₯°πŸ¦‹πŸŒΊπŸ€—πŸ˜˜

  6. Oh Jeff my dear, I love your deep thinking. But you nailed it, and I think all of us is guilty of this one way or another, we think we are done with growing. But in the last 20 years, I am so glad that I finally “got it.” I think we continue to evolve until the day we die. Hope you are enjoying the rest of your day, and I clink my glass to yours for a FANtabulous week ahead! Cheers my kindred! πŸ₯°πŸ₯‚πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ˜˜
