Poem: Stories of life and its experiences; Earth and Nature
Do you have a story to tell?
All of us have a story to tell, but perhaps we have not realized it yet.
Share your stories.
Stories are for sharing. We need to hear each other’s stories.
Stories bring us together. It is an experience, a feeling of belonging.
This spiritual awareness is comforting as we are together as one.
We are spiralled along by these stories, in a space beyond our imagining, but at the same time with our imagination.
Listen —-hush, in the quiet and with an open readiness to hear the story –
Listen for there is truth.
Stories teach truth to us, if we listen deeply and link spiritually.
We are not alone, we are never alone when a story is being told and shared, we become one.
Stories are part of who we are.
Children know this intuitively, and love people who can tell them stories in all kinds of inspiring ways, with music rhythmical movement, dance, mime, sounds, colours and more.
There is a feeling of warmth, excitement and anticipation for the story’s journey.
A change is happening inside each of us, as we listen.
Something amazing is evolving which is vital and important.
We are creating through our imagination, which is part of life and living.
A breath of fresh air and a sense of freedom, like a dawn awakening within us that frees our soul.
We learn to empathize and gain understanding of each other and a respect for all living things who have their stories too.
Tell your stories, encourage other people to share their stories.
It is the beginning of many beginnings.
Trust in the strength of sharing stories.
Find a time and place to become one.
