It is written that the humankind is capable of experiencing only one emotion at a time; that two emotions cannot exist simultaneously.
If this is true, then it must be that emotions weave in and out, out and in, one after another in swift succession, back and forth, forth and back.
For this is my experience – the body wants to produce tears, yet a smile remains present – flickering between joy and sadness, joy and sadness, joy and sadness…
…when something is so beautiful that your heart begins to weep.
When loss hurts so deeply that you want to crumble,
yet the gratitude for what was overwhelms your being with expansion.
When you exhale a deep sigh of grief,
followed by an inhale of vitality and wonder.
When it pains you to see the Sun leave the sky,
though you revel in the magnificence of the stars at night.
This feeling of great appreciation, love and connection,
within the experience of isolation, solitude, bereavement.
It’s this in-between zone.
This space that exists between thoughts, between sounds, between breaths.
It is completely empty and nothingness, yet full and overflowing.
And why is it that I attempt to bind, express, understand this experience with mere words?
What is the motive behind trying to explain this?
To find commonality with fellow humans?
To know that we all experience this Divine expression of life?
Yes. To know that we all experience this Divine expression of life.
For we all experience this Divine expression of life.
We are this Divine expression of life.
We are Divine.
all at once
and never again.
Know what I mean?
