The Humyn Soul Story
“Can we only be what we see, what we think and feel? I wonder if those things can be fully trusted.”
I went to visit my friend, The Lake today. I was gathering edibles, picking up the rips in her tide, and feeding her visitors. She was sad and weeping. I asked my friend “What bothers you?” She replied, “I saw my reflection today; I am not what I once was—rushing, roaring, wandering… I’m just here, flat, still and motionless. I feel I have no purpose, I think I’ve lost my way.
I sat the down the edibles I was collecting, and she helped me wash my hands.
I asked, “so you come to your end here?” “Not quite,” she said “...I’m running beneath the ground...softly...slowly.” “To where?” I asked. She told me of a hidden spring that only the birds know, and a waterfall that no one’s knows the name of, an aquifer in the gulf, and a river where she meets the others that flow into her; together they feed a plethora of creatures. She begins to ripple more energetically as she describes the immense ocean, and how it flows over and over again, connecting to all parts of the world
Her level began to rise, so I picked up the food I was carrying, dusting off some berry stains and moved a little further up her shore
“So why do you feel you have no purpose,” I asked, “why do you think you’re lost?” She replied, “I saw my reflection today, and I judged my disposition untruthfully, I just forgot...” “Can we only be what we see, what we think and feel? I asked, “I wonder if those things can be fully trusted.” She was silent, glistening in the afternoon sun. Contemplation passed between us in the motionless air. She didn’t seem as bothered anymore.
At dawn, I gathered my collections and thanked her for the blessings of food.
I’ve never told another human about her hidden spring, but it sounds beautiful.
