Wachet Auf


Breathe with me now and then awaken
(...)
Repeat:
There are no gods, there are only metaphors
(There are no gods, there are only metaphors)
Stories of adventures of gods on earth are metaphors
(Stories of adventures of gods on earth are metaphors)
Fairy Tales are metaphors
(Fairy Tales are metaphors)
There are no soul mates, there are only compatible or incompatible significant others
(There are no soul mates, there are only compatible or incompatible significant others)
The soul mate idea is a Fairy Tale
(The soul mate idea is a Fairy Tale)
True love is an earned state after a long period of trial and interaction
(True love is an earned state after a long period of trial and interaction)
Riding off into the sunset is a Fairy Tale
(Riding off into the sunset is a Fairy Tale)
No one will save you except you
(No one will save me except me)
Compassion and kindness are human qualities to nurture
(Compassion and kindness are human qualities to nurture)
Established personal boundaries are to be respected
(Established personal boundaries are to be respected)
Listen and observe rather than push forward an agenda
(Listen and observe rather than push forward an agenda)
It is not kind or compassionate to disrespect established personal boundaries
(But…)
No buts, you simply can not force love, friendship, religion or belief upon anyone
(But then I’ll be spiritually bereft and will have nothing to hang on to)
Belief in Fairy Tales and Illusions tends to end badly
(But it’s all I have to sustain me!)
Try this, fall in love with Earth, seasons, the mystery of coincidence, earn romantic love with another through long periods of trial and interactions, listen, connect face to face with neighbors, witness whatever you can witness and without judgement, all this is happening now with no illusions, breathe and tap into that, reality is enough, now breathe and awaken.
