A while ago I read the poem Snap by Damien B. Donnelly.

Damien’s description of how some reflections in life can feel upstirring rather than calming, how hope can sometimes seem fragile and of drowned delusions made me think as I could relate very much to what I read in this poem, due to some life-events at that time.

On the same day I had just listened to some information that pointed out how important and effective it is to stay in a “positive” mind-set instead of feeling scared, all the time.  This information was literally mentioning ripples of old, destructive energy, whilst Damien’s poem is speaking of ripples that can render illusion.

This brought to my mind the idea of disappointment. The German word for this is “Enttäuschung”. Ent-Täuschung… “Täuschung” means illusion or delusion and the prefix “ent” in this case alludes to the act of something being undone. So it literally means an illusion being undone.

That reminded me that perhaps it is not always a bad thing when something snaps, our hopes are being broken and we feel disappointed. Although sometimes painful at first, it may bring us closer to our truth as the illusions/delusions we have been holding on to, are being undone and falling away.

In times like the ones we currently live in, it may be helpful to remember this.  It seems probable that we will discover that a lot of what we have known as reality merely was an illusion which now is falling away.  This can feel scary and disorienting.  The old energy is coming undone. This opens a new and unknown space for us; a space for a new energy to come into being.

We may feel disappointed, at times.  Dis-appointed…  Maybe we only feel this way because we expected the old and known masks and illusions to show up for our appointment with destiny whilst we are actually facing a completely new freedom to be who we truly are.”

And maybe this is a good thing.

Who are you?  Who do you want to be?  Are you living true to yourself?

Are you ready to shine a bright light of awareness on the path of beingness, today?

Much love,
