The Transient Visitor

img_0563x

When we with deliberation
strip ourselves layer by layer

totally of all our roles
of all our relationships
of all our identifying 3D factors
that define explicitly who we are
transient visitors upon this Earth,
do any of us really know
conviction beyond doubt
without shred of evidence
as to who we are
when we dare stand bare naked
face to face with
naught but our soul?
Do we?

    1. I have a theory, Morgirl, that we choose our roles before we incarnate and the rest is wiped from our memories. Little by little we are discovering what we understand in conceptual knowledge by living it. And in so doing, understanding in human form our Creator. Just my thoughts …. 🙂 ❤

    1. IMO I don’t think so, Erika. I think we are meant as we have chosen, to only know that which we are living this life and no more. As we progress what we have previously learned, begins to form in our present life all in a major effort on our part to experience the fullness of the Brilliant Mind in human form. At least that is how I see it. It is impossible to experience All There Is in one Life so we take it in tiny chunks, one Life at a time. The further we progress the more of the “puzzle” comes into focus. 🙂 ❤

      1. Oh, definitely. I believe too that we have our plans for each incarnation. We pick from what is all left for us to work through and our soul is programmed with everyting it needs to know about it. Also our path is programmed for us to be led through our experiences and encounters. Each lifetimeis a layer with many layers….

      2. I agree, Erika. Not too many people can “discuss” this for it is deep. Over the weekend I began to really slow down, something I have not done in many years. When that happens, these very deep thougths come, leaving me really mulling over what I heard. All of us identify ourselves by what we do or who we are in this Life, and to take all of that away, is scary. What is left? And then memories of me as child bubbled up happily playing with a potatoe bug on my stomach lying in the grass, with not a care in the world. Just being me. I knew nothing else. There is something about when you become like a child, the Kingdom of Heaven will be yours. OH yes, true!

      3. The little child is always with us. I think we start feeling really good when we allow ourselves to remember what that little child loved/loves to do! That child is still connected strongly to the source and that is why we feel so home again once we get in touch with it.

  1. So deep and so very beautiful, Amy. To take away layer by layer can be very scaring to do, but it is also a release, when we first accept the rules to look at each layer, before it disappear.
    As you might know, we do have same kind of thoughts about our incarnations. I believe, that we are here to learn and then go on to next, when we are ready.
    I don’t think, that these layers will rip us to stand naked without very hard work first and I think, this may take some years to do, also to go through the needed work first.
    Much love to you and your family ❤ Irene

    1. I’ve been thinking about what you said here, Irene. Beautiful, very insightful comment and from it I know that you too have done much inner work on yourself in order to understand the concept of what I wrote here. The one place I feel like the child I was (when all I knew was “me”) is when I am behind my camera in wonder and in awe. The “adult” slips away and only the Now appears as I wander in a world which totally connects to my soul. Much Love to you and your family, dear friend!!! ❤

      1. I don’t know why, but I don’t remember the feelings of being a kid at all. So long time and experiences ago. I use to feel free, when I’m playing with Odin, my dog, in the nature and not being busy in same time. Then I relax and play and live in the moment.
        Thank you Amy ❤

    1. We didn’t realize when we were kids how precious childhood is. How could we? Now as adults we strive to get that “feeling” back and I do when I am behind that camera!! I bet you do too when out in your boat fishing!!! 🙂 ❤

      1. Love it!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂 …. And oh, just so you know, that darn door will be finished when it is. LOL This is quite the project. I don’t know if you do fb, but I have been posting our progress. Hubby is painting the fire door on horses in garage, while I am applying coat 2 of the polyurethane on the screen door outside on horses in our driveway. When that is all done, we have to assembly everything but not before hubby has to mortice the screen door where the hinges are going and he replaces the screen with a sturdier one so that our “kids” don’t fly through the air with the greatest of ease IF they jump up on said screen. LOL I’m estimating another 2 weeks? Oh I almost forgot. When finished painting the door itself the new hinges have to be put on and we have to hang it. I dunno. And then from there we have to repair a crack in our foundation wall. Yiveh! Let’s not forget my fall gardening. Yikes! LOL

      2. Sounds like quite a project!!! Yes, I do FB and put your real name in and also AmyRose and couldn’t find you on there. Could you like me on FB so I can see the progress. My name on FB is Kathy Funkhouser. Thanks ❤

      5. I had to look, also Amy. At first your name didn’t come up. Then I typed in Amy and Rose as 2 separate words and it worked and found you. Some days my brain works better then other days…LOL.

      6. Your name came up a lot, but not you. Go figure on that one, Kathy. You have a very unusual name and here it is a popular one. Thank goodness your brain was on. I’ve been, it seems, in somewhat of a fog lately. I’m just glad we have been connected of FB. Get that rest you deserve!! I’m trying to teach my hubby that concept but no, he just keeps on pushing. Some heads are harder then others …. Just sayin’…. 🙂 ❤

      7. FB at times is sure weird and have given up trying to figure them out..lol. Didn’t know my name was popular out East. I was widowed years ago and Funkhouser was his last name. You have had a lot on your plate lately and get in a fog at times, also. Glad we connected on there also. Yes, men have a way of having harder heads. Hugs ❤

    1. John, I admit, this post is not for everyone. It is deep and it takes someone well advanced on the Earth Journey to be able to grasp the meaning. You are quite welcome, dear friend. It means a lot to me that you relate to what I both “heard” and “understand”. These are the type of discussions I LOVE best but so few are able to join in, from lack of understanding and yes, fear.
      I will be over to see what you have in a bit. I’m involved with staining a wooden screen door and trying to get rid of a vicious headache from the fumes. Then on to varnishing, coat one out of three. Hubby just gave me a ventilation mask that makes me look like an alien from deep space. I think I will take a pic. LOL Much Love, ❤

    1. My mind tends to go deep, Dan, especially when my Life begins to slow down which it did over the weekend. I actually found myself playing with makeup and in so doing, stopped to ponder this concept here that I presented. Yes I do strive to be my authentic self in all I do yet the question remains do I really know me? It’s quite a lot for this brain of mine to embrace. 🙂 ❤

    1. Audrey, over this weekend I really thought about what I put to question here and I can say with honesty I don’t exactly know who I am. So much of me has been directed at helping those around me and sacrificing my own desires as a woman. In pondering this perception, my stomach knew butterflies as I sought deep inside and asked, Who am I really? This vein of thought all started when I decided to play with makeup and do something silly like try to apply false eyelashes ending up with glue all over my face. I did managed to get the darn things on but they were so stupid looking and so uncomfortable I ended up taking them off. In gazing in my makeup mirror I really questioned who I am. It’s been SO long since I played or did girly things, just so caught up in being “adult” with massive responsibilities. I still to this day am thinking about this question, seeking seeking within. Do you know how hard it is to know myself without the hats, without the roles, without the labels? It is for me. And that, dear friend, is my truth! 🙂 ❤

      1. Being where I am in my Life, I have learned to be authentic even if people don’t like it. Yet there is always room for improvement and I know exactly where. The one place I am just me, Audrey, is behind my camera when I step into a world of such magnificent beauty that it stills my breath and comforts my Heart. And it brings song to my soul. 🙂 ❤

    2. PS I also showed hubby what I looked like with those falsies on and I laughed so hard I had cramps in my stomach. When I took them off and cleaned me up I again showed hubby and said Look, I am normal again. Tee hee …..

  2. The hardest part of this for me is the stripping of those roles, layers, and labels that others have assigned to me and I have accepted. I keep getting little snatches of the real soul that inhabits this body and I know I will continue to enjoy this journey of discovery! Lovely shot and words, dearheart!

    1. Carol, for years I have consciously promised myself to get rid of what others have dumped on me, and overall I have done a pretty good job. Yet I still question and I still seek. The closest I get to being ME is behind my camera or sometimes when I am editing an image and all there is, is NOW. That is the closest I come to just being me. You are amazing and I know you will not quit until you get the results you seek. Bless you, dear friend!!! ❤

    1. YellowCable, I have been waiting all day long for someone to comment on my image. I dabbled in different, and new and wanted to hear what others thought of my efforts. Thank YOU so much for noticing and for what you said!! I worked a long time on this image, teaching myself as I went along, experimenting to see what look I was going after. You made my day and I mean that!! I was feeling discouraged until you came along. Really, I cannot thank you enough!! Bless you!! ❤ ❤ ❤

  3. Oh alien of this world (the varnishing mask 😀 , and in truth, yes, you are an alien in human form down here 🙂 ), you are being shown ‘conditional’ so that yee may seek unconditional…for when it is ‘touched’, all will be understood…a wisdom is gained like no other, and your journey will become ‘known’ 🙂
    And a great shot by the way, beautiful colors, as is your light fair lady 🙂

    1. Mark, you crack me up! I never put the dots together and laughing as I write this, yes I am an alien. I had the mask on to prove it! Coincidence? Uh-uh! Here I write a post questioning who we are and then today I find myself with a ventilator mask on (yes I did take a pic and am seriously thinking of posting on FB) and the answer is right in front of my nose. LOL OH MY! Laughing …… It took your brilliant mind to put the pieces together while I was still digging for answers, with the answer smack on my face. Too funny!!
      Seriously, your words are so right on and I sense again as I have before with your words, a Higher Source. I’m so comfortable with unconditional and this conditional restricts and binds and hurts at times, yet it pushes me to flow with unconditional Love. Oh, this is just perfect! Perfect and it is YOU who cracked the case!! All smiles here ….
      You must have peeked at YellowCable’s comment and how elated I was someone noticed my efforts in this image. I am so blown away by this image and I thank you for saying what you did about it. The original is very close to this minus the special effects I added with textures, blurring and framing. I wish I could just hug you right now from sheer delight! Bless you!!! I can picture you and I sitting with our heads together talking for days straight. Your mind goes even deeper then mine does and that, my friend is a huge compliment! I tend to “scare” people if I begin to talk deep. Anyways ….. Again I really really thank you!!!! Much Love!! ❤ ❤ ❤

      1. lol…Amy, it is that beautiful understanding within you that has guided you (but your compliment is gratefully accepted with the love it was given) 🙂 , just stand in that ‘unconditional’ heart as you are, it will lead you truly out of the ‘conditional’ forest that we live in…mask, husband, fur babies and all, they all teach great wisdom 😀
        Much love to you also kind lady ❤ 😀

    1. Thank you, Julie! As for your question only those with eyes wide open and who have courage strive to see who they are under all the hats, labels, roles. My life consists of so much work (as yours does!) and lately all I want to do is play, romp around with my camera and take pictures. Life is so short and the dreams I keep saying to “someday” I have to begin changing to “right now” because now is all we have. When I play I feel like a kid and that comes closest to just being ME. 🙂 I’ll put money on this that you understand!! LOL ❤

    1. This is a process, one that probably is a life long journey. Layers upon layers lie within and as one layer is peeled back another is revealed. All the programming we have received is so extensive and so subtle it takes one with eyes wide open and a very courageous spirit to find the core of existence within herself. So glad you enjoyed this and took the time to comment!! Have a great weekend! ❤

  4. Petal by petal, layer by layer, Mask by mask, we peel all back.. 🙂 uncovering who we are.. I have found each layer all though at times of the peeling painful.. All necessary in revealing our true selves.. And sometimes we can surprise even ourselves as we discover those inner strengths which those obstacles were always meant to for us to conquer..

    Absolutely beautiful dear Amy.. ❤

    1. Only the bravest of the brave agree to jump into this process, Sue. Yes it is painful and downright scary. There have been times I have questioned my sanity along the way. This finding Truth is far from easy. May you and hubby have a great vacation. You truly deserve it!!! (((HUGS))) Amy ❤
