Time … people have kicked my ass throughout these last 50 years. I have been utterly broken, spiritually, physically I’ve been beaten, years went by, events brought me to a healing place … the forest. The forest, and communion with that which dwells there, eased my soul ~ as a young girl and teen, and time and again as I aged. It burns now, it is cleansing.
Know thy enemy well.
As you experience life, perhaps you have had similar occurrences which have broken your spirit, think on the many times you bounced back, overcome that which hurt you. Go very deep within your intuition, you will find there a knowing that those who harmed you are only being puppeted … asleep, they do not know that what they do is harmful … yet. Forgive them, it will be difficult, one of the hardest things you will do. However you do not deserve to be walking around with anger and a hatred of the evil in this world, you deserve joy, claim it.
Unwrap the claws of darkness from your heart, and claim the light of love, which has always been yours for the claiming. The ones who have harmed you will know some day, they will feel remorse, and while there is still time, they too will need cleansed … just as we, just as the forest, just as the cities and ocean.
Behind the scenes is the true enemy, unseen, maybe even unheard, consciously. Yet they are those who you are dealing with intimately … pay attention, for this battle is getting intense. The awareness you gain by experiencing this pain and sorrow is leaving within you a sure knowledge that is crucial. Learn from it, and while you do, practice maintaining that loving heart you came here with, do not let darkness destroy it.
You are more powerful than you know.
Life is dependent on your ability to overcome these hurdles. All life … the ocean life, that which lives in the air, the forest life, domestic animals, as well as humans. Rise ~ you are the shining one.
