Kim experienced her own thirty days of self love recently and received too much wisdom to put in a single article. Instead, she wrote a poem for us here and for the Banyan Tree publication. My favorite writings by Yogananda are his "Songs of the Soul" poems. For me a poem is a beautiful way to express without going linear or mental, and I simply love this. Thank you, Kim, for gift to us. I am right there with you in the conscious waves of this poem. A breath of fresh, free air in this dense, dense world.
Love Letter from Soul
By Kim Seppala
Sail the seas and discover new lands,
trail the pathless woods and slide
slippery slopes through the dusk.
Fly the skies and dive the depths,
find treasures of gold and dust
on your way, but listen when I say:
Sometimes, the wildest adventures
are the ones closest to home, found
in the timeless space deep within.
Travel the landscapes of life,
trace the contours of contrast,
for I will never hold you back.
And when you’ve seen everything
there is to see, perhaps you’ll see
me too, standing here
waiting for you, my human,
- my heart-shaped souvenir
from this wild ride called Life;
waiting for the one brave enough to
Love. Love: an all-encompassing place
of lifted veils and unfiltered rays;
Love, a space-less place of
Oneness, but one with
infinite facets of multiplicity.
I'll be here, waiting for the one
who taught me to Love, waiting
at the end of time, at the edge of space.
I am here.
