The Sea

The beauty of chronic physical disease is that it begins a journey
The open-ended tickets are purchased
There is a trip you must take, but how far will you go?
What will you see?
The personal mountains you scale are up to you 
 
A broken body pushes you
Forces you to look
The gate opens to the healing pastures
If you start and stop with the physical manifestations you may miss the greatest gift
The emotional-psychological scrubbing that becomes the crescendo.
The third act that completes the story
 
Don’t limit the scope of treatment to the disabilities of just your body
Dig deeper
When you think you have found some peace, an answer to these seasons of suffering…
Keep digging
You will find even more
 
Learn about the chakras and everyday in some way or another take a step toward God
Whether you feel him or not. Whether you believe him to be there or not
Walk forward willing to see what you have not yet seen
 
When your world becomes stripped away of almost everything that you thought made it so
You are right where you are supposed to be
Now listen
There are doors cracking open
 
The injured sick body is just the skin
Just the first layer
Find the courage to cut through the flesh
Into the organs
Through the nerves
It is inside this warm watery world that you will hear your very own heartbeat
 
Like a diver sees the beauty of the sea
The landscapes you travel to are up to you
