Once upon a time, I was delving deep in therapy and retrieving the lost children inside of me—-the terrified and abandoned—-with the help of a marvelous therapist. Somewhere in all of these thorns and mud, I experienced the lightening-bug, butterfly presence of a little girl of light and love.
It didn’t happen by logic but by magic and hard work. There she was, the amazing presence of my original child-soul of innocence and love. I saw the world through her eyes for a time—-the people, the trees, the sky all wondrous and glowing.
I can’t always find my way back to that soul-place but it’s a vision, a glimpse of how to be in the world with trust and love.
