Reflections on life, truth, faith, love, introspection, and transformation.

Tension, choice, and freedom

From tension you came
Pressing against the womb of mother
Expanding her body to accommodate our growth
Contractions preceed this world's most sacred release
Your arrival as a newborn child

In tension you choose
Who you are
Integrate your impossibly improbable ancestory
Find your true identity
Navigate relationships of all shapes and sizes
Function within the lanes of society
Manifest your unique community

With tension you find pleasure
Deep in breath calming the vagal nerve
Deep out breath sharing your voice with the world around you
Muscle tension precedes meaningful right action
Energy contained in the form of you
In the form of your joy
Tension of pressure together in connection
Contractions coming through many magnitudes

With tension you work
Pushing purpose into activity
Actively stewarding, organizing
Putting energy toward an purpose
Inner and outer progress toward beauty and truth in outcome

Intentionally in tension
Freedom arrives

Where does your freedom await?
