Can we allow fierce beauty to claim us through the BETRAYAL, LOSS and ABANDONMENT of our lives?
Maybe life takes us away from those we love the most in order to purify us into a larger perspective.
Perhaps those whom we come to connect with, in an otherworldly way, could make us forget precisely what we are here to tend.
Perhaps relishing in their presence too long would intoxicate us to the point of the abandonment of our becoming.
Perhaps loving someone so much could trap us in a selfish bubble of our own needs, wants and desires.
Perhaps we’d explode of ecstatic overwhelm into a trillion tiny fragments and never find our way back home into the wholeness of our beings.
Perhaps the burning fires of longing are to cleanse us down to the bone with lessons of suffering and humility, only broken hearts can ever know.
Maybe the ones who leave are the ones that may unknowingly care the most, setting us free from a choice that will lead us away from our core, and that truly we could of never made on our own.
What if what we have come to feel and assume as betrayal, indeed can be a story of the greatest love proclamation of all.
What if this was the experience of loss meant to invoke the true measure of our strength? A renewed invitation of faith and commitment to the life that must be lived through you?
What if we retold the story of betrayal and abandonment as necessary awakenings into becoming whole?
What if we allowed that pain to expand us into deeper gentleness with ourselves and more compassion with the pain of others, instead of falling victim to becoming harsh or wearing masks for the sake of an illusory ‘being strong’?
What betrayal or abandonment have you experienced that yearns to be alchemized into wisdom and offered through you as the Divines’ sacred bread for the nourishment of the whole?
Grief is the wound and compassion the healer.
When we allow ourselves to acknowledge and express our grief we come across a vital key to opening our hearts.
Coming to terms with our own grief can lead us towards more compassion for ourselves and for others. Grief comes from our very core, our system, it can shut us down and lead to the very loss of ourselves through numbing, depression, isolation and even illness.
Knowing how to carry and channel our grief is a way of bringing to wholeness parts of us we have lost along the way. We can recover lost soul fragments.
It’s not the load we are given, it’s how we can carry it.
We must remember GRIEF not as foreign entity and not as an outsider to be held down or caged up, but as a natural process here to reveal an evolution of our Self.
The restoration of harmony in our world depends greatly on the manner in which we approach, process and express our grief. Not only our external world but our internal landscape.
Conscious expressions of grief are healing. Lack of expression of our grief leads to repression which turns into impulses and emotions that is whats at the root of the general unhappiness and depression that we feel. It makes us feel dislocated, separate and isolated. It invites
Unacknowledged grief will cause us to unconsciously sabotage love, to look for outward comforts that numb is, leave us empty and in a hungry escape from the reality of our lives by trying to find relief.
Grief is experienced differently by every person. So learning what your way is can be very liberating and self supportive.
Communal grieving offers something that we cannot get when we grieve by ourselves. .
Through validation, acknowledgement and witnessing, communal grieving allows us to experience a level of healing that is deeply and profoundly freeing.
Each of us have a basic human right to grieve our losses and make of them beauty that honors what has come to pass.
Within us all, there is a DISCERNING VOICE.
This voice calls out the falsity and dissonant noise of the fabricated world,
whose intent is to keep us and distract us from our hearts' true inheritance of purpose.
In order to listen to this guiding voice we must make True Presence a higher priority than comfort.
True Presence always invites you into a greater intimacy with your own self-inflicted lies and inherited toxins blurring your awareness.
This is the voice attuned to the greater message of your existence, this voice is what lights and guides you through the darkest and most painful of times. It knows the greater weaving, it always knows what is on the other side of what you yet, cannot see.
This voice was with you before your very arriving.
It reminds you that suffering is a doorway into another landscape of being, a more refined awareness. It asks you to trust the unseen far more than the already, decaying seen.
Suffering can be safe passage to an expansive field of probability. A field with all the support, resources and opportunity needed to nourish your awareness which was not available to you before.
Without this voice you can sit in thresholds that do not grant you passage and keep you in stories, that never get a chance to transform into new narratives and allow your souls’ beauty to ground and bloom into this world.
This voice is the soul song to your unique choreography in the stage of this world. And paradoxically, it's in the silence your ears can hear its tune.
Isn't all holiness but the cultivation of hearing the voice of our own soul?
How often do you tithe sacred silence to learning the language of your discerning voice?
