It is time to address your need to comfort others despite your discomfort in doing so. Perhaps you label such actions as caretaking. While such is true to a certain extent, more importantly, doing so is an indicator of how you dismiss your needs in relationships.
There is a momentum in Life. It is like a fire you build, and it behooves you to keep the fires burning. The fire you add to is yourself. Either you go forward, or you allow your project to die on the vine.
Sometimes we have to listen to the voice within and let it be heard; it’s a part of us after all. I did that last night, I was the lowest I’ve been in many many months and I felt myself slip into the gap between here and there.
Courage is a product of higher purpose. Courage conquers the fear of pain, of loss of life or the loss of a loved one. With higher purpose, you gain the power to spring into action and achieve your mission despite any fear that you may feel.
Finding your way through Life is an individual process within a collective of support. It does not always feel like support, and your mind can process much evidence to the contrary. Your heart, dear one, can find much Love within all experience.
Creating your dream frightens you. Such a statement may appear accusatory, but it is not. You hid your true being for so many eons on earth that you are now afraid to be different, to create, fully expecting some sort of punishment as soon as you create your physical dream.
Withdrawal is contraction, holding back. When you do this, you are constraining yourself, which serves nothing but to hurt you. This is what makes your body sore, your sleep disturbed, your energy jumpy, your defenses high, your heart closed…need we go on? Stop it. Really.
It's been a very quiet time. Many of us are experiencing openings to our Infinite, Universal Heritage. A shift into an expanded sense of who we are. To live this takes strength. Courage. A willingness to listen to your heart. An openness to the fluidity of your being.
For some reason I’ve been having a lot of conversations about empathy recently. Empathy has been defined in the scientific journals as ‘I feel withyou‘, as distinct from compassion, which has been defined as ‘I feel for you’. With empathy, we share another’s pain and we are very aware of the effects of our actions on them. With compassion, our focus moves a little in the direction of wishing them freedom from their pain.
We wish to discuss something Brenda heard earlier this week, “creativity requires courage.” So it does, just as is true for creation. Both force you to move outside your comfort zone, to be different – even laughed at. Indeed, creativity and creation require that you think differently than others. To create is to produce something that is new to you or others.
This week may be uncomfortable for many of you. You may feel as if you are at the starting gate and the gun has sounded; but you are only able to move through the gate with a great deal of effort. Winning the race is no longer your objective, just remaining awake and alert is. We smile at your concerns.
