I am Free

I Am Free—

as the flowing particles
of the wind
that permeate through
and between —

all things,
near and far
and in-the-spaces
where nothing else
dares to

but the mystical murmurings
of Ether’s song

And the wind is committed
just as it is free
committed to its essence
committed to being
in all forms
and persisting
through the wild storms
to the calm breeze…

The wind is Eternal
and commitment,
sets it


Commitment offers us deep stability and focus, supporting the building of an inner sturdy foundation and container that is actually what our souls crave… in order for our consciousness to fly free and wild, without becoming scattered and lost.

I’ve felt this knowing for a long time but my appreciation for this in the physical world is continuously sinking in deeper. I’m in the most committed (and monogamous) relationship I’ve ever been in — and yet I feel freer than ever before. In contrast to what my life looked like several years ago, when I was exploring polyamory, open-relating, and my bisexuality.

Of course there are different relationship structures for everyone and the type of relationship is not an indicator of commitment level. I have explored many and I am not one to judge, I understand many different perspectives.

But I ask this question to probe you, if you are exploring. Are you doing so because that is a genuine calling… or is it because you are actually afraid of commitment?

Asking yourself that question and honestly reflecting on the answer may just reveal some deep clues as to your fears, values, and desires.

Make sure you’re choosing a relationship structure out of love, not out of fear… and don’t hesitate to reach out if I can be of support.

Have a wonderful weekend
