In Alanis' Words

These song lyrics of Alanis Morissette speak to me of being real. They speak of telling the truth, listening to the wisdom of our bodies and not being afraid to experience life on life’s terms without blame or shame, unabashedly. Why do we hide our emotions? Why can’t we tell the complete truth? We were born with inner guidance that has become clouded by the influences of society and its dysfunctions. It is the natural order to experience life while not being attached to it. Can we be thankful for our frailty? for disillusionment? for nothingness? If I am willing to experience and accept all that comes my way, does that ‘karma’ not then pass and leave me with nothingness? To me, that is real freedom. Nothing sticks…including anger, judgement or sadness. It just passes through.

Thank U 

by Alanis Morissette

how bout getting off these antibiotics
how bout stopping eating when I'm full up
how bout them transparent dangling carrots
how bout that ever elusive kudos

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

how bout me not blaming you for everything
how bout me enjoying the moment for once
how bout how good it feels to finally forgive you
how bout grieving it all one at a time

thank you india
thank you terror
thank you disillusionment
thank you frailty
thank you consequence
thank you thank you silence

the moment I let go of it was the moment
I got more than I could handle
the moment I jumped off of it
was the moment I touched down

how bout no longer being masochistic
how bout remembering your divinity
how bout unabashedly bawling your eyes out
how bout not equating death with stopping

thank you india
thank you providence
thank you disillusionment
thank you nothingness
thank you clarity
thank you thank you silence
