Momentous Occasion

We don’t receive wisdom; we must discover it for ourselves after a journey that no one can take for us or spare us.

– Marcel Proust

The most unique creature
In all of creation gifted
With unprecedented features.

Breaking free from the mold
To truly behold,
Before the clock releases its final hold.

Hope and persistence
Would have been sufficient.
Countless other instruments

Given to see to fruition
This manifestation
Of existence’s
Most fundamental realization.

Why such fear?
Why such resistance?
Why such procrastination?

When the dearest
Truly is the nearest.
Isn’t it time to be the clearest?

Such a momentous occasion
As this, to experience
Your own unique bliss,
Is an opportunity not to be missed.

Regardless of all the naysayers around,
When you have embraced the beauty found,
Then every step you take on this path
Is on hallowed ground.

The discovery,
The drive,
The push to know,

Were gifts of the gods
To truly behold
The most divine
Within your own soul.

Making that connection.
Feeling that feeling.
Settling for nothing less.

Then divinity given.
Divinity received.

Understanding emerging.
Such profound feeling,
Truly gratifying
To the core of your being.

Such is the benevolence
So generously gifted,
With each passing moment,
On this road to fulfillment.
