In the Pause

IMG_7731.JPG

I never believed in god

Until I saw her

In the pause

When I exhaled

and didn’t breathe in

Right away

-

I never believed in god

Until I felt her

Energy

shooting out of my fingertips

After dancing my heart out 

sweating at 7am surrounded by 300 of the tribe

-

I never believed in god

Until I realized

That it was

really

Just that

I didn’t believe in myself

-

Now that I can see

I cannot un see her

Un see me

-

The power

That I hold

That sits between my head and my feet

In my heart

In my lungs

In every single cell

-

And now

-

I see her everywhere.

I see god everywhere.

I see me in everyone.

and everyone in me.  

-

I never believed in god

Because I didn’t believe I was worthy

Of such a love

-

But we are not human

Having a divine experience.

-

We are divine -

having a human experience.

-

And in this moment

In the pause

Everything changed.
