The essence of me

Today I met the essence of me, she smiled and told me to sit for a while. She appeared both familiar and strange in her demeanor, gentle yet ever so powerful.

I asked if we had met before, she nodded and her words were few.

“I am Love,” she said, “and I have been to the depths of darkness for you, to the dungeons, the cellars and deep underground.”

I shuddered and asked what it was that was there, “Memories, habits, beliefs and impressions – some decayed, others haunted, while many beautiful treasures too.”

“I have met the demons, the disbelief, the doubt, these shadows are all my friends.  We sat together and shared a laugh, then went our separate ways.”

What now, I asked, and where do you go, she smiled and said “Beyond”.

    They make good company! The angels and demons. Their fascinating company keeps the spirit alive with the need to search and seek clarity and repose. With a restful awareness of what may lie beyond, I move forward with this band of comrades.
