SACRED WIND / AYŞEGÜL YEŞİLNİL
Nobody should be anybody’s.
We continue our life journey alone. Then, somebody comes and wishes yourself in you. Says be mine. Give me your life, your love, everything.
May your eyes only look at me? May your lips only smile at me? May your hands only caress me? Walk on my way. Be mine. Just mine. May your holder be me?
However, love, a real love does not mean to feel and make him/her feel like you are his/her holder. Making him/her feel the freedom is the real love. Nobody is anybody’s. It shouldn’t be.
Envy someone and do not trust in is the reflection of the self-distrust. An individual who respects himself/herself doesn’t hold this morbid feeling inside.
The main thing we should hold is our freedom and character. If we really have our freedom and “then” hands, eyes and hearts may choose to be together. That’s the real love which reaches the correct place. Love and care cannot be desired by force. If it does, then it can’t be named as love. If only it grows spontaneously we can call it love. If there’s no interest, the desire for love is a misery. That’s one of the biggest trap between relationships.
Give me you care. Give me your love. Be mine. Always mine. May I own you. Your life is mine. Walk on the lines I draw. You are mine.
“Nobody is anybody’s”
Actually all of us are alone. There’s not one more of us. We come to life alone. We gain many things earthly and spiritual. We are educated, learn, share, succeed, lose, enjoy or suffer, we multiply, we love and we are loved. Finally we leave here alone again.
Nobody owns anybody.
The person, who wishes us to experience this, cannot love us. They are the ones who love their egos.
Halil Cibran (Khalil Gibran) summarizes this in one sentence:
“Always be abreast but don’t come close to each other, because also the pillars that carry the temple are separated.”
The cage is not suitable for a butterfly.
And the only living thing which creates its captivity is the mankind unfortunately. It has also the power for annihilate this. And firstly he/she should believe in this courage and power of change. Person itself to turn into a snake bites its tail. It bites more as a result of the pain and then it has more pain. This continues during the life. And in the end he/she becomes a miserable situation. If somebody doesn’t respect himself/herself, he/she cannot respect to anybody. Discouragement and indecision makes him/her slower. He/she doesn’t see the life’s losing during this. An individual can be a part of solution in spite of being a part of the problem. And this is the thing which separates him/her from the rest of the people.
Especially in double relationships, people search for the people same with them. They thing that’s the eternal harmony. This also is a type of narcissism. However the surprises revitalize the life are hidden in the differences. And these differences feed the relationships. Anyway the harmony brings the power and high quality. Beauty occurs when feelings joins without forces and sanctions.
Just like the beauty in the legend about 2 animals which belong to the land and the air while living in one body. They do not own each other. Because they are already “one”. If a person is lucky like that then he/she has the biggest gift given from the life.
Because if you are able to be the wings of the strong and free lion, or if you’re able to rise with the eagle’s wings.
Then, you are the one who have the gift from the land and air.
Then, for the correct way, the only thing your wing’s need is the wind.
And then God is ready to give the Sacred Wind…
