What is Wrong with You may be What is Right with You

This is just wonderful… please read.

An Upturned Soul


We come into this world as a whole and are gradually split into parts of a whole.

It can be as innocuous as family members looking at a newborn baby and discussing which parts of the baby belong to which parent.

“Oh, he has his mother’s eyes!”

“She has her father’s smile!”

“He has his grandfather’s chin dimple!”

“She has her grandmother’s hair!”

We’re not really sure how much the baby understands of what is being said about it, and how it perceives this attention. Perhaps it just registers the attention as affection and feels loved. Or perhaps it picks up on something else, a sense that it is made up of separate parts and none of them belong to it, they belong to others.

These comparisons and ownership of pieces of self continue throughout our childhood and into our adulthood, expanding from our physical self into other areas.

"The religious naturalist is provisioned with tales of natural emergence that are, to my mind, far more magical than traditional miracles. Emergence is inherent in everything that is alive, allowing our yearning for supernatural miracles to be subsumed by our joy in the countless miracles that surround us." Ursula Goodenough How to describe oneself? People are a mystery and there is so much more to us than just our particular experiences or occupations. I could write down a list of attributes and they still might not paint a complete picture pf Deborah Louise and in any case it would not be the full truth of me. I would say that my purpose here on Wordpress is to express some of my random experiences, thoughts and feelings, to share about my particular journey and explore some subjects dear to my heart, such as emotional recovery, healing and astrology while posting up some of the prose/poems which are an outgrowth of my labours with life, love and relationships. If anything I write touches you I would be so pleased to hear for the purpose of reaching out and expressung ourselves is hopefully to connect with each other and find where our souls meet.
