If you could meet your true inner self, what would s/he look like, and what would s/he tell you?
She would look like a child, maybe a bit like the little Julie in the Maxx. Maybe she would be a bit more like spirit, a light or energy that gets freed when we pass. From nothingness, back to nothingness. She may be like a mother, comforting me. Or like a father, setting me straight. Maybe like a bunny, going forward as fast as I can, but needing the turtle to say, "wait, understand why."
Inside, there is darkness, light, emptiness, fullness, everything and nothing. From blackeness, into shades of colors, into light, from survival, into self awareness and love for those around me.
Something that surrounds me every waking moment, but is difficult to explain. I am part of the mass consciousness or the mass unconscious as it seems sometimes.
Within is beauty, potential and growth. I mean it, the inner being is who I am, the outside is what passes. It is the inner that will destroy or nurture the outside.
(I didn't come up with all of this, this is based off of zen teachings I was just reading).
