This week we have Dr. Egypt Iredia. She performs a reading of her poem My Child-Like Eyes and the concept and development of the poem. We discuss her journey from a medical doctor, developing a holistic method for her patients, and her love for hidden knowledge and healing.
Dr. Egypt is a multi-passionate, healer, physician, poet, metaphysician, and non-linear creative. She believes that minimalism, slow living, and living a spiritual and intentional life are all-powerful healing forces. She believes in using all of our wonderful gifts to show up authentically in our lives. She has many passions and embraces them all to craft a conscious life. All her work and offerings are grounded in natural law and guided by spirit and intuition. Her mission is to empower people to live healthier, calmer, connected, conscious, and creative lives. She sees life as alchemy, art, and magic. Her journey of self-discovery and healing is never-ending. And she uses her strengths and vulnerabilities to act as a healing guide for others to manifest their highest selves.
My Child-like Eyes
At times I want to dissolve into the void Into the place where I lay nameless Where I possess no attachment to the weight of the world A place where no tongue wags in my honor. Or in my disdain
Where I can be me. Where I can be free I want to rest free, held by the knowingness of the Mother Gaia For the love has flowed without condition She has seen my darkest clouds, yet carried me through
I’m wary of ever seeking the eyes of others Of ever proving my worth to be seen or heard I’m fatigued with the many masks I must wear, not including my own I want a sweet liberation, that which only the nothingness holds
What I speak of is not death, not an uncoupling of this mortal coil What I speak of is not a hermitage, not a recoil away from this world No, what I speak of is the untethering of my mind from the cares of others From frivolous yearnings, that holds no essence
I seek for a new mind, Unweighted with the many burdens of fixed paradigms I want to once again see the world anew Like the first day I kissed the earth hello
