BAM! There’s The Truth!

Bird-of-Paradise-Bright-Blue-Sky

There’s the truth

It was sitting there the whole time

I chose to ignore it

I chose not to see it

Not to hear it

Not to feel it

Not to deal with it

THERE’S THE TRUTH! BAM!!

Uncovered

Unwrapped

Standing in its nakedness 

Nowhere to hide

Sometimes it is hard to pull back the layer of disguises we use

To ease our thinking mind

To assuage our conscience

To ignore our responsibility

And to stay deep in the energies of the EGO

Which makes all things about US!

There’s the Truth

BAM!  IT’S NOT ABOUT ME!!

Blessitude!

Do you ever find yourself so wrapped up in something, so involved with a situation that you lose all ability to be objective and only view it from your point of view and how it affects you?  No problems were ever solved in this energy, that’s for sure.

I have been involved in a situation that has been an enormous struggle.  And each day I seemed to go lower and lower into the selfish view of how the events affected ME!

I signed up voluntarily to do this job.  And, I had a very specific view of how it would (read~should!) be.  When things didn’t look the way I wanted them to look, each day became more stressful and I fantasized about bailing and I watched as I became the self-centered, ego driven part of myself that I had hoped was no longer available.

Fear obscurred the untainted, unconditional love from my soul, and I realized that my original motivation for taking this on WAS NOT FOR ME!  It, therefore, IS NOT ABOUT ME!

And when I wrapped my head around the idea that my heart was already holding in a giant bear hug, all of the negative energy drained out of my body.  I felt like I could breathe again.  All of my muscles and my jaw, which felt like they were in a perpetual state of tetanus…rock hard…ready to fight (or take flight) unrelenting engagement, let go.  And I felt like a normal person with a “sensible body,” and I felt LOVE.

I felt love for myself, I felt love for her, and I felt love for the original motivation which was to honor the end of her life.

I clearly see now what my job is, and while I anticipate there will be difficulty, I will do the right thing, and all the while I will remember…

IT IS NOT ABOUT ME!

  1. Bless you for your honesty, Lorrie. When pain strikes and circumstances keep pounding at us oh yes we can fall and once fallen, keep rolling down that cliff until we remember LOVE. I too have been in ego land just so filled with pain that the continued hits I am getting from others I have been loosing my usual calm. Your words inspired me to take a bath this evening to just chill to concentrate on getting into my Zone again. Oh yes the tension in my neck and jaw … I know only too well. There truly is no greater Love then sacrificing self for another. I walk your shoes, dear friend, and so will keep you close in Heart with me. These “tests” are getting very very difficult and at times, IMO, downright impossible. Keep shining your Light and always stay open and honest, for it is this that will carry you to the Promised Land. Much Love to you! 💞

      1. I just posted a video today, Lorrie, that proves I have not lost my laugh. Even amongst all this devastation, I’m still able to giggle. Amazing! All is Good! And there truly is a reason for what both of us are going through. ☺️

  2. It’s easy to fall into MY part in this and what I think it should be, along with all the implied “I have to’s” buzzing in my head like mosquitoes I thought I’d shoed away. Your honesty reminds me that we are all so human and we can remember to step back and let things flow. Peace to you, dear Lorrie.

    1. Thanks, Joanna 💗 Sometimes I feel a little fear exposing the not so pretty parts of me…but they are part and parcel of this whole package that is me. Learning to love all the parts has been so important in the healing journey I’ve been traveling. And when you write something like this back to me, it confirms that what is in my heart is always the ‘right’s thing. Thank you my friend…hope all is SUPER in your world 💜

    1. Hi La! Ah! Thank you for your always beautiful words and sentiment that I know comes from your heart!! 💗
      I think it is so easy to become self obsessed…to be so into how everything is affecting us that we tend to get a little lost.
      Sending you beat wishes for a wonderful week also…hope you find beauty and truth in all places 💜💜
