Nowhere to Go But Within


Looking for understanding,
met with impasse after impasse,
and the devil inside says give up.

Where to go
when there is no space left
for the things I once held sacred?

Set everything down.
Close your eyes,
look inside.

There is nowhere to go but within.

  1. To ponder the difference between giving up and growing. Is the acorn cracking open so the seed can grow giving up? Does the Monarch larva (caterpillar) give up when it becomes a butterfly? Was Siddhartha giving up when he left the castle and became Buddha? The acorn requires the earth. The Monarch its cocoon. Siddhartha his vow. Sweet blessings and peace within my friend….

    • Thank you Beth. You somehow know when I need most to hear from your heart’s wisdom, and it is such a blessing to receive it. Yes, pondering the difference between giving up and growing…softening the lines I have drawn, seeing a different way of seeing. ❤
