Here, consider your personal development, your growth in any or all realms,
not as making improvements on your design but as peeling off all of the layers of varnish, paint, and falsehoods that have been split, splattered, spit, shouted, heaped and slathered upon your free spirit – upon the light of our love – yours – mine = ours.
All the stuff you were led to believe, taught to believe, beaten to believe, threatened with in order to saved, thought they believed so you should believe too – right – if you want to be a “good” (whatever) son-daughter-brother- sister-friend-student-employee-citizen-follower of whomever – OMG!! What a tangled quantum of possible sins!!!
Mistakes, unforgivable choices of omission or commission…
Peel all that away without guilt or blame – without drugs or alcohol –
and what you have left
it’s a tender and precious and special
and equally so on every level
that there is
because it’s all there is
and is always met with love
which is all we are
at our core energy.
We sense this. It is not pride that urges us to admit this. It is our truer selves that asks us to accept, allow and grow into this more humanely.
I try, I stumble. You catch my elbow & steady me. How’s that for love? For a start?
