Chakra Opening

Who knew that waking up
could be so exhausting?

That leaving the material world behind
would claw away at your reserves?

I forgot… that when you open your eyes,
you not only begin to see, but start receiving.

You awaken from the deepest sleep,
surrendering all free will.

Realizing that there is only one
that shapes us all.

Shedding the illusions of the ego,
and embracing the desires of the heart.
