Topic: Empty and Full (06/04/09)

TITLE: fluctuations of fullness
By michelle moore


Just as being in a room full of people, it is possible that a person can be lonely; equally so can a room devoid of people have a full and bountiful presence. The blanks of a room are created and left to the desire of a personís heart, their memories and most importantly their hope. The hope of being fulfilled as a human being and the flashes in their mind of the times that they experienced powerful emotions, powerful enough to be embedded within their mind as a held moment, to recall at any time in the future and to encourage their ability to feel. The picture having been taken and kept to remind the holder of who they are and how they relate to others, together with the precious search in hope for the best that they can be, without the fear of disappointment and without being distracted and wavering. The disappointment is the emptiness, the hole in the ground. The heart is all that has been fulfilled and loved.
The stomach is the merging of the two, the emptiness and the fullness, in all its toil and yearning, driven by the heart and mind of course, but it is the stomach that braves and measures the depth of the fight if in need and induces sleep when content. The stomach is the mighty battleground that protects the heart and courageously overcomes physically to the decisions of the mind and heart.
We are designed to endure all manner of experiences, with coping mechanisms and nerves, laughter and releases. Designed with wisdom and precision to endure the rough barren times and to savour and be gladdened through the rich embodiment of heartfelt warmth that awaits all that actively desire joy.
One lifetime can seem like several as time forever pushes forward and the changes and seasons circle around us. That is the point though, without the extremities of life has a person really experienced all that there is? Perhaps fulfilment is having the goody bag of life, both ups and downs and continuing through hope to reach better and better heights of understanding of all that humans can be. Compassion comes from knowing and understanding the emptiness of others and embracing them with the stronghold of hope and love of joy.

The question you raise regarding the extremeties of life, is an interesting one to ponder. Just a suggestion, but I would create more white space between paragraphs for an easier read, and to make each new thought stand out. This is quite a unique take on the topic.

A thought-provoking read. My favorite line was, "The blanks of a room are created and left to the desire of a personís heart..." Much like a blank piece of paper can come alive through our imagination.

You might consider breaking down a few of the longer sentences for a smoother flow. I felt myself wanting to know what some of the precious memories were in the first section. I wanted to see and feel more about it.

Keep it up! Good job. :)
