Coming to love ourselves is not about occasionally saying “yeah I love myself,” it’s not about doing the “right” thing, it’s not about eating the “right” thing, it’s not about feeling/saying/thinking the “right” thing. Loving ourselves completely is about BEcoming love, not about loving… when you BEcome LOVE, when you embody LOVE, you no longer seek it from outside yourself. You no longer find flaws in yourself or anyone else.
Today is National Coming Out Day. This is typically a day where someone that is gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgender and has been hiding it from others tells someone, or makes an announcement like on Facebook. Today a lot of us know someone who fits that description and we either celebrate it, don’t care, don’t want to think about it, or ignore it. I’d like to put a little bit of a spin on it though…
I’d like to come out today and say I’ve had an enlightenment experience. One of those experiences that you read about in books, or hear from some guru or spiritual teacher. I’ve actually had an entire experience where I not only felt but knew that every particle of my being was in every thing else. Where I knew what the trees felt and heard them speak, where I understood how I and the rest of us came to be and how none of us really understood that our only “job” to do here was to recapture that feeling.
Has anyone out there ever realized that when we say “let me help you with that,” we take “that” away from them. We actually take the experience of “that” away from someone else. We no longer allow them their own journey. We think this helps them and yet it really just means they will have to do “that” at another time to learn it on their own.
I know many might rage against this but the most beautiful thing my mother ever gave me was the gift of her death. When you strip away the lies, the fears, the logic and all else that we let blind us. When we lift the veils and begin to remember our true selves, our true existence, the reasons we came here, the experiences we wanted, the depths of the human experience we wanted to explore we realize what all of this is about.
Sing it! Ermm, yeah… That’s about all of the song that plays for me. Songs indicate certain things, certain markers, certain things we are supposed to notice. Our Higher Selves send us songs all the time, it’s another form of synchronicity. This song always indicated to me to stop and look around, I was seeing NEW Earth. It indicated that time was not what I thought here and that if I looked closely enough I could see that I was in a different “time” than I was before. That was my first indication of New Earth, now I just roll over and open my eyes and BOOM it’s there!
