Pain leading to a higher level of Consciousness
I am often asked who do you go to Lori for comfort, who do you talk to lean on
When you are weary.
As people come and go in my life, there is always an inquiry and assessment on the part
Of the traveler looking at me and my ways, sometimes it is gentle and kind and sometimes not
What I know to be true is the look into my life, is through the lens of their own being and
Not from my lived reality.
I mostly just let the traveler hold whatever view they wish of me, because
It matters not in the truth of my life.
What I know to be true for me is that my daily walk has been through the lens of pain,
that has been transformed into light and love.
What is true is that my spiritual practices and beliefs have carried me through my life,
The mighty mountains and deep valleys.
That when my spirit is low I travel closer to the light to be renewed, reinvigorated, restored.
What I know to be true is that it has worked without fail each and every time. That in the end, sometimes after great twisting and turning and much protest I find myself once
Again on my knees at the mercy of the creator
Requesting to be shown the Way through,
And I am
The process of this bending has become less rigorous and deep over time
Only because I bow quicker now
That I know the Way.
