Seeking I am lead to a place from which I cannot return.
I am reminded that I am but a visitor here from a place I never left.
She came to me by dream urging me toward distant hills.
She opened me that I may give birth to the creative.
Though I sought comfort in ideas, she led me to the song of my heart.
My desire for her is but her desire for me.
I draw her unto me as she draws me unto her.
I dream her with every breath
as she is the breath that dreams me.
–RJ Cole 2017
Who is the ‘she’ of whom I speak? She is my soul who animates me– the spirit guide who comes to me as a means of bringing balance to the archetypal dueling forces of the masculine and feminine within me. She came to me in a dream to help my conscious self unite with my spiritual self and invite me to leave the diversions of both my adult and childhood selves behind and scale the mountains beyond where my true self lay. She is the connection with my soul that I yearn for.
