Too much

Some days the exile seems too much. The busy world has no time, turns a deaf ear to the soul and connection, left alone with our sorrow the burden becomes too heavy, at times crippling. Why is our society so switched off in so many ways? Sometimes the deafening silence in the face of grief just breaks my heart. The wilderness reasserts its hold on our joy obliterating it.

Believe me I know this will pass but lately it has all felt too much.

"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.

    1. I will chase it up.later when I have access to my computer I believe I made my first post on 26 December 2013. I was encouraged to start when another person using WP An Upturned Soul published a poem. She helped me make a start but I’d been writing about my journey privately for 8 years prior snd journalling since the age of 6.


  1. we need to be ok with being different from the masses. don’t try to be one with these people, most don’t know what it truly means to live a spiritual life. at first, the difficulty might be that we feel alone, separate, disconnected from everyone else, and you think that is what you need, but over time you will find that this solace you find yourself in, is exactly what you need. it feeds your spirit. it allows you to realize who you are. it continuously reminds you that you are not them, that you have found your purpose, even though you may not think you have, it is staring you in the face. this is the difficulty, the challenge, the struggle. by nature, those who have found their purpose and meaning in life, who are connecting to the other side, do not fit in. embrace it.


  2. Yes, the feeling of exile shall pass as new seasons keep evolving ..
    “New Horizons”
    The calm whispering sky
    Becomes the morning’s warm foot-bath
    While doggie paws wander on the winding path
    Dawn’s old cogs begin turning
    Rusty axles are slowly rotating
    Daytime wheels start rolling
    Time never stops revolving
    New seasons always keep evolving
    And summertime lights up new horizons

      1. I just read this and thought of you.. Do you know the poem, Ivor?

        its only one stanza
        The great clock of your life
        is slowing down,
        and the small clocks run wild.
        For this you were born.
        You have cried to the wind
        and heard the wind’s reply:
        “I did not choose the way,
        the way chose me.”
        You have tasted the fire on your tongue
        till it is swollen black
        with a prophetic joy:
        “Burn with me!
        The only music is time,
        The only dance is love.”

        Stanley Kunitz

        mainly sunny with some cloud and warm Ivor,.. very warm.

    1. It has broken a bit today but I know its Venus Pluto as it hit the exact aspect over the weekend and when it beings to move back in a few days it will rehit it so a lot is being stirred up for our evolution. As you said we just have to keep processing to throw off the old patterns.. much love..<3
