As I’ve been watching Wayne Dyer’s, Manifest Your Soul’s Purpose course this week, I was reminded of an evening where I unexpectedly did some deep soul searching and writing.
It was August 22, 2019, which I know because I snapped the below picture, and I was alone in a hotel room. Again. I had been traveling a lot for work—site inspections, depositions, hearings, etc., and I was feeling rather low. A sense of unfulfillment consumed me, and I missed my family.
I began meditating, praying, and just listening. The hours passed and I was still deep in thoughtful silence well past Midnight. At some point thereafter, I began to feel as if I was no longer alone. Not in an eery ghost-like way, but more like a calming awareness.
I remember reciting certain words and phrases in my head—unsure of what they meant really. It was so uncharacteristic of me, so I decided to start writing it all down in my new, bright yellow journal.
The result was much like a poem, which I don’t think I‘d ever written, and the words didn’t read like my own. It’s like my impersonal self was connecting with my personal self. To this day, when I re-read these words, it’s a bit hard to believe I wrote them.
Nevertheless, here it is.
Purpose speaks in silence.
Discover your silence within.
Connect and awaken.
Love in light.
Freedom and shift.
Realization and become.
