There exists within the human heart the deep need to understand and find meaning.
Arising from birth, searching for answers, clarity and supportive perception.
Feeling a deep yearning which sometimes is muffled by pain, denial, and judgment.
Experiencing broken connection, loneliness and abandonment.
Alone in the universe, feeling separated from all, despairing of ever finding the answers, ever finding the end.
Tell me the truth, tell me the future.
Show me my way.
Bring me answers, make life certain,
make it right now.
Don’t let me falter, don’t let me fail.
Give me the courage to live each day.
Searching for an answer, some sign or indication of what to do.
Thinking the answer is somewhere – if it can just be found.
Then someone steps up and the trying turns to their answers.
Helpful, maybe, at first.
Yet what’s other doesn’t seem to satisfy.
Where is MY answer?
Inside. Look inside.
Hearts – mine for me, yours for you — hold the way, the path, the clarity.
And the answer yearned for.
There all the time, inside waiting to be seen, waiting to break free.
