Responding to a current wave of shaming “positivity”…
This isn’t about hiding or denying our most intimate feelings, it is about coming to terms with anger and sadness from the things we have had to deal with in our life, and trying to make it tolerable… and my Goddess, a little “Love and Light” never hurt anyone.
“Ignore those that make you fearful and sad, that degrade you back towards disease and death.”
It’s OK to reach up-and-out for the ‘Silver Lining’
“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.”
Reality is going to hit each and every person differently…
Trauma changes us, pain changes us, and that silver lining? It can certainly be blackened by the elements (suppressing our emotions). But what if the human condition is craving betterment? By “betterment” I don’t mean fluffy puppies and unicorns, I mean a raw commitment to working through the hideous atrocities some of us have gone through - and perhaps instead of celebrating the path of demoralization, we choose to stand up to the things that plague our soul.
As we rise, we just might find some solace in the past and the shit will be minimized, slightly desensitized, in our memory. Never forgotten, but perhaps an internal self-forgiveness which means easing up on our anger, resentment, and our hardened heart for hanging our ‘stuff’ on others – realizing that the blame that might just need to go.
Here I speak with sincerity; it feels good, and it is A LOT better than clinging to the past in righteousness. It’s a little liberation for heart and mind and I know, I truly know there are new beginnings when the old stuff ends. The portal to peace opens, it is up to each one of us to now step through.
