Wishcasting Wednesday

This week the Wishcasting question is, "What do you wish to tell the world?" As it happens, I was pondering that very question last night: I wish to tell the world, whispered very quietly like the most fervent prayer, "I am here."

I wish to tell the world, "Remember me." I wish to tell the world that I've worked hard in my time, this pass on the wheel, to become wiser than I was before I came and desire to add that collected, hard-earned wisdom to the spirit that is me.

I wish to tell the world, "I know a great many of you think I am wise and knowledgeable, but that I'm simply a Human Being trying to do the best I can while I learn to be better, still. That I have more questions than answers; I wish to unflinchingly ask them of myself first and then others.

World, I want to tell you that- "I walk in the truth, although it is hard and often lonely. But, walking in the truth is the only way to walk free. And I never share the truth to hurt or wound. Because truth does not hurt; real truth sets us free. It is the most liberating when it is the most difficult to consider."

I wish to tell the world, "Be brave, have courage, do not fret. The misery you feel today will pass. The joy will return. And you must be prepared for the cycle to start over. Because that's the way of things- nothing you feel, no matter how intensely, remains fixed. Feel what you feel and move through it and past it. Do not allow it to hold you hostage and bound."

But most of all, I want to tell the world, remind the world, "I am here..."

"...and though I may resemble thousands of others, I am the only one of my kind. And, I have work to do that only I am able to do. Give me the fortitude to walk gracefully in the truth and power of that miracle."

Namaste Till Next Time,
Holly aka The Truth Teller

Oh Holly! It was if you could have written this for me as well. These lines truly stuck out for me: "That I have more questions than answers. That I walk in the truth, although that is hard, and often lonely. But, walking in the truth is the only way to walk well." ~Amen!


As Holly wishes for herself, so I lovingly wish for her also!

Holly - in this world of time and space, it seems that we are all alone. Only other egos know of our existence here.

But in Reality, we are all One. In a way that is too vast to explain in words, or pictures. Just a thought. When we join with each other, we become aware that we all have each other!

As Holly WILLS for herself, I will for her, also.

Beverley Baird said...

Holly these are very poserful words and wishes.
Thank you for this powerful post.

I think we all want to be remembered. I know I certainly do. One of the biggest joys of having children, I think, is that they will remember me and tell others that I was here.

As Holly wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

As you wish for yourself, I wish for you. I think you're asking for a recognition that goes more profoundly IN, from a deeper external source ... maybe a professional environment, somewhere that asks the most of you in ways personal/friendships can't? It sounds like you are feeling diminished in some way -- I can only assure you of my vast appreciation and love, Holly!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Holly, You have a wonderful gift with words and this is proof, yet again, of how powerfully and beautifully you use them.

We met less than 5 months ago and I have no doubt, I will always remember you!

Gosh, this is wonderful and so heartfelt. I often want to be seen and remembered, but I think we touch people's lives even when we aren't aware of it and yes, we are often remembered too :)

Holly,

I'm a little late getting to your Wishcasting Wednesday post, but once again, I'm incredibly struck by your talent and by your wisdom.

This post was particularly beautiful and inspiring.

I think you can rest assured that there are many others, like me, whose lives have already been touched by your insightful words, who do Know You Are Here and who will indeed Remember You.

May All Your Wishes Come True. .
