Vulnerability, we have gotten to know each other quite well over the last many months. I value all that I have gained by learning to live heart opened, and in doing so, Vulnerability, my friend I have embraced you into my life. And now here you are again opening me to go deeper and deeper, inviting me to explore with curiosity and wonder the very essence of my soul.
I softly whisper, “Vulnerability can I just dip my toe in, feel the waters first to gain a sense of self before entering the rushing waters? Can I hold on tight to the life preserver, that I have come to know so well, before diving into the deep end? Can I sit and observe… maybe watch for a bit? Please tell me is there a safety net?”
Vulnerability gently whispers back, “You can do whatever you choose my dear. But you have invited me into your life. You have tasted the delicious truth of my presence. You have experienced the richness and joy that comes from seeing your world through my experience. You have chosen to accept the risks that may come so that you may experience the passion, desire and love that comes with truly living your life fully. The depths of your soul have stirred with delight as every inch of your fiber screams in its yearning for more.”
I close my eyes and feel the sensation as this truth resonates through each and every cell of my body. “Ahhhh yes… ” quietly, gently the words escape my lips. “Vulnerability thank you, I’m ready!”
