I am so grateful to discover the spark within me.
Everyone I know is so grateful to discover the spark within them.
Everyone I don’t even know all over the planet is so grateful to discover the spark within them.
I can feel it.
I didn’t know it was there.
I was so lost in the culture of obedience, I didn’t know there was something to listen for.
But it spoke, it played.
I felt the sensation of....something.
It spoke to me.
It was quietly present.
I began to listen, unbelieving.
Impelled to action, still confused, but acting.
I found myself on the other side.
No one else seemed to notice.
But I knew I was looking in, being in but not of.
I began exploring other places, keeping the form of my old touchstones.
Not knowing what, if anything, was out there where I am now.
But there is.
It was shaping up all around me.
Until I could see it, too.
