VULNERABILITY – THE CLOAK OF A SPIRITUAL WARRIOR

In POETRY by SeemaLeave a Comment

Often our fear of pain and suffering is far greater than our love for love. Fearless love can only happen by being vulnerable, open, ready to take any hurt, wounds with no fear, no expectations and ready to take whatever comes. This love has the ability to commune with another being and is without separation. It is the space where blessing can happen between two hearts, two beings and it has the potential to go beyond duality.

Being vulnerable means, dropping the protection that we have been carrying around all these years. It means to drop the pretence to look better than we are. It means to be exposed and naked to judgements, attacks and what others might think or say, with fearlessness.

Vulnerability is a shieldless armor. Just imagine how freeing it is not to be afraid to get hurt, wounded or judged. It requires strength and patience. Vulnerability is the shield of a warrior. It is about spaciousness, openness of heart and mind. Nothing can cut you, touch you, burn you, drown you, dissolve you because now your love is enormous, with no beginning and no end. Limitless just like the sky and as deep as the ocean.

Walking on this path, initially can bring fears, doubts, temptation, exhaustion, inner demons and even wanting to give up. This is why the path of vulnerability is for the strongest, firmest and yet the most gentle ones. It’s for those who are grounded, for those who are not looking to project a self-image and walking around with a covering as disguise to protect that image. Vulnerability is the cloak of a spiritual warrior.

Walking,
Path tells me
Stop !
You will get
Tired
Stop now
You will stop
Midway
Why walk?
Path scares me
Saying
You will find
Demons
Thundering,
Crashing
Turbulent
Winds
You better
Stop !
There will be
Roaring
Cascading
Thunderstorms
You better
Stop
Now!
But I am crazy,
I say let
Them come
I will walk
Together
Hand in hand
With
winds and storms
I have lost
Myself
Just let
Me dance
Non stop
As now I
Have
The sun and
The moon
In my heart
unstoppable
Dancing
Away
Everywhere
And
No where
