We all must return to a place we call "home" to regenerate; al place where our true nature can be free - if only for a moment. We spend our lives wearing masks to appease the people around us and our everyday environment, fulfilling our duties as friends, lovers, son/daughters but it is essential to our soul and psyche to return to a place where our body, soul & psyche can be one. To do so, gives us strength and insight to live a more complete and fulfilled life of a more wholistic nature.
We all have 2 sides to us - the dark side & the light side - the yin & yang. In order for us to live a balanced life we must not only become acquainted with both sides but to love and accept them as our total being.
The most precious tear given... the one of passion and of compassion, shows the soul what it truly wants.
The sacrifices and choices we make in our lives in order to be either successful/creative. Should we have to choose between love and our passion such as career goals?

Embrace change in our lives and be accepting of the Life/Death/Life cycle. Nothing lasts forever - all is changing - all is beautiful. The art of letting go.
Our painful, shameful secrets implant themselves like burrs in our psyche; weighing us down; keeping us from being our true selves; filling us with inhibitions & self doubt. We keep them locked away tight so no one will know.... but sharing these secrets to an open minded & sympathetic listener, we begin to unlock the shackles, healing those deep psychological wounds.

Be strong & true to yourself. Ask the question dared not asked that nags at the back of your mind - face truth.
You are trapped in your own thoughts. No way out of your head as the toxic waters of inhibitions, self doubt and insecurity begin to rise. There is a storm raging in your animus and your ego is under attack.
