Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our time running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous. Giving up on love and belonging and joy – the experiences that make us most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to expose our darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light. (Brene Brown,author)
(Favourite lesson this week so far!) My light bursts through right where I am. “Often when you think of this journey, this change of life, you have some idea of what you want to get from it. There is a light calling you and you are moving into it. This is fine if it assists you in moving along your path. However the light I speak of now is not outside of you pulling you: it is at the core of your being, bursting through right where you are. There is no place to go. There is no extra journey you need to take. The power of this magnificence is right where you are.
You seem to be looking for something outside of yourself to motivate you, to give you incentive, to give you permission, to give you validation. You sense the anxiousness within yourself and you want to do something, anything, just something.
Way to often you mischaracterize the unrest within you as negativity, the worry, the anxiety, the trepidation that you feel are automatically assumed to be and therefore dismissed as negativity. And you- being so allergic to negativity attempt to run away from these rumblings. Oh no, no ,no ,no, no, No! Don’t run away. That’s just the Light! That’s your own Light. That’s you! That’s something in you that is trying to break out!
Your whole being is trying to get your attention saying let me out of here! Let me express. You must learn WHO you are
When you discover more of your light, when you discover more of who you are, you begin to realize that there is not so much work for you to do. As you discover more of who you are, there isn’t any more Velcro on you, no places of attachment for all those false images and false beliefs of who you are! Shine your light on yourself. Just shine no matter what!” Peace!!
