‘INNER ISLAND’ “Home is where loneliness disappears.
This home is an island inside of us.
A place that we neglect.
A place where we can all find ourselves.
A place where we are alone together.
Many of us blinded by society, unable to see this inner home try to fill this emptiness. We use material things, chemical substances, and societies distractions to try and alleviate this void.
Personally I’m aware of my feelings.
I recognize the child inside of me that experiences these emotions. What we need to do is connect with this inner child.
Acknowledge these feelings. Breathe through them and help heal this child, in turn healing ourselves.
We need to remind ourselves that we are worthy of happiness, peace, and love.
Although we must always deal with this outer world we cannot neglect our inner person, inner child, inner light, we must nourish them all.
Healing will bloom from this connection.
We will gain strength to face the outer world from this affinity.
We will become our own island filled with happiness, love, and peace through these links.
As we discover this home, this inner island we will always be able to carry this beautiful place with us always.
We will then never be alone and will be able to share our island with others.
Show them how to find home within themselves. Show them how our islands can connect in the ocean of love.
Then, there will be no more loneliness for any of us.” ~Matthew C.
