Yes, I’m going there.
I long for a world, a global family, that opens our hearts and minds to deeply consider the experience of others and support them during their times of “need.”
Now I’m bringing vulnerability into this game.
Those that have numbed their emotions, those that have essentially left their bodies and live largely in their minds, may not have access to the same feeling experience others do.
We are one another’s teachers. And we are both students. Tripping along the path back to One.
But her love, our love, is not the prison.
Many of our desires may be an attempt to compensate for a sense of disconnection within.
As I write this, I’m thinking what accountability means for me has to do with the aftermath of how I respond to the reflections I receive.
Who are we to put ourselves or others into groups, into categories, based on what we think we know about them and their pain?
At some point, we may tire of the game of attempting to make sense of things.
I’m feeling inspired in this moment to extend a bit of empathy to you, your little girl (inner child), and (energetically) to all women that have suffered at the hands of patriarchy (in the form of an apology)…
We convince ourselves we are better than others when we fear we are not enough, or not okay.
Do not try to mold them into who you think they should be
Unless we believe we are lovable, which may mean receiving our own love, or connecting to our inner source of unconditional love, the world may continue to reflect the unlovability of the parts of ourselves that we feel this way about.
As we enter this paradigm, many we love may fade from our lives, and we may fade from theirs.
Part of me deeply wishes to partner with another, or perhaps multiple others. To feel a sense of companionship. It’s a longing to share the journey of life with others in deeply intimate ways.
