Awaken

Transparent Words

see through words

enlightenment
waking up
to yourself
isn't an exclusive
experience
or an elite club 
with a gold members
access to self-awareness

these words are
transparent
almost see through
i'm not hiding behind
big psychoanalytical words
or flowery mystical jargon

enlightenment
waking up to yourself
is kinda awkward

almost uncomfortable at first
navigating the turbulent

waters of how
self-perception
and how people perceive you

are not the same
how that greatly affects

how self-aware someone is

these words are
transparent
almost see through
self-awareness helps
a person understand

their own experience

with the world it may
also result in a better
understanding of 
other people

when you awaken
to yourself
you awaken
to the world
and when you
are awake 
and aware
of how
life experiences
make you feel
why they make 
you feel that way

these words are
transparent
almost see through

a simple self awareness

enlightenment exercise

think about your favorite color:
say it out loud

picture it
now think about:
why you like it
how it makes you feel

enlightenment
waking up
to yourself

doesn't have to 

be ceremonious
it can happen
in simple ways

at any given moment

the smell of the coffee
the heat of the steam on your cheek
the bittersweet taste
