Waves of Truth

By Millicent Sykes

When the vessel is sick 

Cues and signals become distorted 

A sense of danger and safety can become inversed 

A sense of love and hate can become confused 

This makes discovering a solution difficult because the problem seems to continuously morph 

What if our organs are attempting to communicate via our thoughts?

When does this communication become less helpful? 

If we are here to help each other, how do we do that if we can not see what is happening? 

Roadblocks become difficult to pass, as if a brick wall were encountered with no provided detour 

Impacting emotions, thoughts, and behaviors

Stuckness and stagnation become the new norm

It’s a degree of separation as an attempt to get closer to your core essence 

Discovering the relationship and expression of criticism 

How that criticism is internalized and then projected as the perspective of what reality is and has to be 

Oh how emotions impact the functioning of the mind… the most potent it seems is fear, anger, and sadness

Acknowledging the grieving process associated with accepting reality 

To decide the best way to move 

But first, identifying the enemy (sometimes, internal, other times external, and for a few… both) 

Then, deciding where to attach one’s focus at the moment before redirecting 

The equation between intent and impact is missing variables 

What was once annoying becomes what is craved 

When does something become bizarre, foreign, absurd? 

When does something become disgusting, intolerable, rejected? 

Same question but opposite descriptions… 

For me, “…that’s a secret I’ll never tell” 

For others, well… you tell me 

For yourself, well… that’s something only you would know, right? 

Like a growling dog, people and things (ugh machines) alert us to their boundaries and limits 

“The limit does not exist” 

Yes and no.. 

like anything, there is a threshold that is met and people decide to become stagnate or decide to adapt 

When does the tipping point of reality embed into the consciousness of the masses 

There may not be an objective truth, however there is a pattern of comprehension 

When resistance to nature feels less heavy and digestible 

At what point, does wisdom become the collective story?
