Emotionality

Emotions are like sparks, 

Memories of something fiery,

And yet simultaneously asleep.

Inwardly they move us,

Tell us what to do, 

Or how we will feel upon certain actions.

Like boundaries, 

They prescribe limits.

Emotionality is a relationship,

A way in which we check in with ourselves,

Asking, “Who am in this moment?”

“Who am I in this situation?”

“Who will I be, if I make this choice?”

In the same stroke,

Emotionality is relationship with the divine,

A connection with that mystery which lives in and through us,

The touch of our creator, 

The whip-crack of proliferation. 

Through our emotions,

We know reverence.
