First a meditative moment on the is-ness of what has been…
In case anyone asks why I’m traveling alone, I’m always ready to say “I’m on a one woman retreat!” Often no one asks as if they assume or sense when a woman is alone, something touchy might be at play.
Whether or not words were spoken, I’ve been judged, laughed at, and projected upon…
I’ve been someone to be…
…blessed, cheer-led, well-fed, fed off of, and gone hungry for more.
…worried about and responsible for.
…responsive to, reactive to or to ignore and abandon.
…disappointed in, approved of, and proud of.
…put on a pedestal and looked up to as well as knocked off and talked down to.
…belittled, pumped up, had my bubble burst.
…saved, vilified, victimized.
…called black by the kettle.
I’ve played many roles over many lifetimes, and the list could go on, but the bottom line is that perhaps I scattered myself to find myself. I gave away my power to know my power.
As I’ve learned to be responsible for and love all parts of myself, I’ve also felt and been told I’m an inspiration. Though I travel my journey no matter how people react, seeing the Soul of another brighten as I shine my heart is life giving for each of us.
People thrive out of purgatory. Trust, love, and fearless abandon guide the way out. Reclaiming the treasure in expression from where it’s been buried in right/wrong duality and speaking truth as Divinely guided is a restorative process.
Speaking truth flows from what is aligned now while being at peace with the past and unattached to the future.
Unwinding old stories of what the mind is making things mean opens up space for universal alignment. Failure and success are both in the eye of the beholder. In the eyes of Divine Source, no such game exists nor does reward and punishment.
Blame and shame only muddy the waters of what is true. Past judgments distract from what is aligned now. Trauma speaks louder than words. Silence shouts all things not felt.
Love is a foundation for speaking truth.
Melting away hurt with golden love grows more love when nurtured with care. Love is the energy of universal creation because in love acceptance is present, and all things are born from acceptance of what is in the present moment. Universal creation births worlds within individuals who sing the song of truth with love.
