Let it shine forever

“Come, with me,” says a voice and I float after it.

Lost. My identity lost. My body lost but I know I’m still there in some form of existence.

I’m swimming through a void of memories and dark and bright pathways. I face darkness first and then the bright white light of eternity engulfs me.

All of a sudden – a last memory – a distorted smile trying to pull me back. I try to wipe this memory clean and see… a man. A Face…young, hair… black, eyes…sparkling. It looked familiar. A view from distance helps me to see another face…a woman, young, black curly hair, eyes light brown. She was smiling and had something in her hand.

“Who is this?” The existence asked the voice.

The voice, “Don’t you remember. It’s you.”

“Which one – the man or the woman,” asked the confused existence?

The voice said, “The woman… of course. Now let’s hurry, we are getting late and the portal will close soon.”

Ok.

The existence started following the voice without any choice.

“Wait! Wait.” She shouted and said, “I remembered that moment. Keith…I think. Yes! That was his name. He had proposed to me. My ring. I can now see in that moment much clearly.”

Good! Now let’s go.

Wait, why is everything getting grey? Why is it so bright, now? I can’t see anything from that moment. Please! Please, make it stop.

“I’m sorry I can’t”, said the voice with some softness in it. He continued, “However, if you want I can let only one thing remain for eternity in your memory – in the same form as it was real. Fast. Time is running out of your hands and mine as well.”

golden ring

Fine! Don’t shout. I choose my hair…no, wait I choose him…no, no. I choose my brown eyes…no.

Fast kid!

Wait…wait, wait. I choose…that ring…the golden ring. With his name inscribed and our promise of love. I ask you to let the golden ring never be black or grey or white. Never be lost in time and space.Let its golden glow be forever. Let it shine like a sun… forever.

It’s in my voice

Sometimes during training sessions I’ve been video recorded (only for company’s use) and that’s perfectly ok with me. It helps in self analyzing and over the years I’ve seen my training style improving as well. (Normally we always ask the participants to video record themselves as it is becomes their guide in improving and understanding their own body language.) So I would say watching a self video helps me although I might not like it (I mean the process of someone barging into my session, however with time I’ve learnt the art of not being bothered). It is quite useful and that’s why it’s ok with me. I’m not conscious at all because it doesn’t bother me as I’m engaged with my participants, totally engrossed in my sessions.

What should I say about my voice? It lacks the sweetness of a child and I don’t chirp like a bird at all. I think my voice is not melodious at all, although I used to sing in the church’s choir group and people said that I sang well. As a grown up I understand they were just being nice. How is my voice? According to me – it is a bit husky. I’ve heard the recorded version of me and that’s what I think of my voice. I don’t like to hear me specially if it is a recording. However some people have a different opinion altogether and they say you have a good voice. Well I’ll leave it to them- but I don’t like my voice. I thought I’ll share it with you since I got the option.
