Hello Falling Soul.
I remember running freely.
Laughing, hands skimming the tall grasses.
I remember my toe catching a rock.
Flying, forward, falling, right onto my face.
Enveloped into the dirt of the field.
Yet the grasses still continued on, dancing in the breeze.
No one but me knew I’d fallen so hard.
Is that you? Did you fall when everything was going fine.
…then suddenly, you are on your face.
And maybe no one even knows the depths to which you’ve fallen.
It happens. It happens more than it should. Because life has a lot going on.
And there are little rocks everywhere, just waiting to catch our toes.
And there are big crushing rocks too.
But even when you fall, eventually you have to get up, else the ground envelopes you, fold after fold, into a grave.
No fallen soul. You can get up.
And yes, I know you’ve gotten up many other times.
But today, you simply do it again.
And as many times as you need… you get up and do it all again.
But this time it’s different. Because you are learning.
That rock… the one that tripped you up. Simply acknowledge it, learn from it, and then LEAVE it.
Leave it alone, it holds nothing more for you than the memory of tripping.
There is a wide open field in front of you.
My hope is that one day these Truth Cards will come to good use. Eventually I’d like to publish them with proceeds benefiting TWLOHA (because I think what they do is so very important). I have no idea how that will work, but it is a wish. For now they are my gift to you. So without further ado, here is your Truth Card to print. I’m offering one each week, collect them all and you’ll have a beautiful set of 52 cards. Simply click on the card (which takes you to my Flickr set) and download and print. I have my Truth Cards on a small easel. They look best printed 5″ x 5″. You are free to give them to others, in fact it would be a huge honor if you did. I just ask that you do not remove the copyright info. This is an honor system, I honor you, you honor me. n♥JOY!
