“In the depths of the darkness of your soul, when you are fighting with the demon of anger or hatred or shame, when all succor seems a far and distant oasis, have you ever felt that the feeling was bigger than you? You know you are right, for when we are pushed to the depth of our limits of despair, when we are moved to the height of suffering and pain, there we attune with ‘collective suffering’. This vale of tears is an archetypal well of remembrance, a place where the demons of corruption lie.
This is why it is our destiny to heal ourselves with courage, mercy, refinement and grace. For when we do heal, our brothers and sisters heal too. When we experience truth, inspiration and sincerity, we feel illumination seeping through the very morrow of our bones. Therefore, our soul tingles, our heart resounds and all ‘heart stabs’ are cleansed …
… We’re really not so separate from this peace. We just think we are.”
~ Stewart Pearce, The Heart’s Note
What is your intention in life? Are you suffering the “disease to please”?
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.
There is a seemingly long road ahead, yet when traveled quickly it will not take much time. If a smile is remembered, and worn through all experiences, the journey will seem to be pleasant even while handling the most difficult situations.
What you’ve been waiting for is ever near. Remain in hope and faith that goodness will prevail … it will, and you’ll be glad you did. Continue strengthening that which brings joy to your heart, and create the same for others, you will see the change before your very eyes.
Show them how it is done.
There are many critics now days, in ALL areas of life. I have have received a private message from one who wants to “connect”, only so they could throw an abundance of foul insult and degrading rhetoric into words. Of course I did not accept, however it amazes me that this is the energy that this individual chooses to put out there.
When we find ourselves faced with a communication laced with profanity and insult, it is important to shut it down immediately. Do not give that language room in your mind. It can be difficult, for I myself have had the experience of being backed into a wall with someone physically in my face screaming these hurtful and harmful words, performing damaging deeds.
They are possessed with an evil that lurks in the ether, and truly, I do not think they even know this. When they come at you, hurting you, simply remember that it is your light and your inner strength they hate, and they will try to break you … do not let them.
Shine your light so bright! Smile at them when they are hurtful, delete the comment before reading the whole thing, take away the power of this crazy vulgar mess … for it is using YOUR power to hurt you, do not let them have it. It belongs to you, and you have been, and must continue, to use it bringing additional light into the world.
You have within you the power to change the world, and you are doing just that. These mean and hurtful comments and actions … the people who spew them out there like liquid dung, straight from the mouths and bodies … they know, they see your light, and it infuriates them. But you are strong, and no matter what comes your way, the light you shine will assist others in being brave enough to follow suit, for they too have this beautiful light within.
Show them how it is done. Practice. No one said it would be easy, but this is why you are here. Deep within you, you know this to be the truth.
