Hungry Hearts and the Courage of Void
Untouched Melodies, Unheard Rhythms
Within us lies a longing for things unseen –
A melody yet unheard,
a path still unwalked on.
For why should one not pine after that which has eluded grasp?
Why shouldn't it torment to miss what was never possessed?
Look within you!
The rhythm - our shared vibration where absence is presence;
Where missing becomes having; yearning transforms into knowing...
Here we seek solace but find none: Only questions teasing answers...
"Why do we ache?" You ask me... "When there is nothing lost?"
Because my dear friend:
We often learn more from voids than volumes.
It's not about possession or lack thereof— no!
But rather the understanding of being able —to long;
To reach out amidst uncertainty with hope blooming courageously,
Nurturing love even when its object remains elusive -
That’s strength to kindle sparks into flames…!
So come now —Leap fearlessly unto this mystery!
Embrace these paradoxes as they echo through existence.
See? Even though untouched by hands— felt deep within hearts…
And therein lie hidden treasures waiting patiently…
Do hear their call? They whisper gently …
“Courage knows hunger before feast…”
You might consider them mirages dissolving if grasped tight…
Perhaps…but maybe worth risking everything for just a single touch,
One glimpse beyond reason reaching towards essence —
Oh—you haven’t had something doesn’t mean can't lose to
"Look deeply into your disappointments, examine your heartache, interrogate your longing, probe your loneliness, meditate honestly on the elements of love of which you are still ignorant, and you will discover that the void within you is already filled with the desire for fulfillment. Your yearning itself is an internal guidance system that is moving you to become a lover." - Sam Keen
