If you have not yet felt this in your life,
You surely will.
For those who have
Then you surely understand the
meaning of Rock Bottom.
It is a time when all you knew
Understood to be true
And the simplistic being
Is taken by the wind
Into an abyss
Of confusion, turmoil
When the interior must grapple with
the meaning of Life.
When what seemed important and real
no longer matters.
A fundamental shift in awareness
When frivolity falls away.
When we begin to look toward simple comforts, transcendent moments
to carry us through the storm.
When we reach for that which never made sense prior to,
When the need was low and the yearning quiet.
Reach, yearn, beg for release from the suffering,
This is the turning that causes a life to be built on
Love, acceptance, simplicity, humility, understanding
The Crying out is the crossroad.
