The Volcano Within. Sunday November 22, 2015
If you insist! If you just dare! You will witness a rage like no other here! Do you want to see the volcano erupt?!
Sometimes dormant, sometimes bubbling, spitting away at the surface. Warning those who throw stones at it's glowing cracks, the open wounds, to keep away! No don't touch! Steer clear! Go! Evacuate!
It's intense heat and sparks that fly a dangerous place, created by history. How does one dismantle a volcano? The power of it's vast and deep furnace is simply far too great. The local people know it well, live close and read it's signs, keep away from it's firey surface. Travellers visit it's beautiful majesty, innocent to it's ugly fury. Created by history.
The history of the earth itself.
How do you dismantle a volcano?
The power of nature is way too great.
It is within, burning away at the very core, mysterious, all powerful, mighty and terrifying. Formed by terror upon terror, face to face. No fight, no flight. Survive. Survive. Survive and wait.
Wait for what? Wait for who? Wait for when?
So erupt. Go ahead. Then what?
Then what? Forever?
Open your eyes. You can open them now. It's gone. The danger has gone. Peep. See! Gone! Look at where you are right now. Who you are right now. What you see right now. It's safe. It's ok, no need to hide. No need to fight no need.
No need to run no need.
There's nothing there. No ghosts, no monsters.
No need to build a fortress no need.
No need to reek havoc no need.
No need to explode, erupt, destroy, defend.
No need my love no need.
Take a deep breath of clean fresh air, it's safe, its clear.
No need to shield your eyes my love. Stand straight, stand tall. Look how you've grown! Look around! Walk to where you want to be. Wherever you want to be!
With those bright eyes wide open now, you are free!
Free as a bird to please yourself, to live in peace, to keep those eyes wide open.
