The real strength of being human is to be vulnerable, real and able to respond easily to all of life. The cardboard image melts away and the real you emerges, as the false box of safety disappears. You find the truth of how easily you can die, lose or fail to have everything go perfect, and how quickly your illusion of how life is supposed to be can disappear.
The ego is a mechanism that holds firm to the beliefs and fears that keep up the image of who we are and how we expect our life to be. Breaking the ego and opening the heart to simplicity and truth is the focus of spiritual awakening and healing.
When people are so busy saying that they are responsible, it is just a heavy image of holding the belief of how things are supposed to be, or caring for or worrying about others in a way of sacrificing self. True responsibility is a lightness of being and a freedom to respond to any and all of life’s challenges easily. There is no doing it for others or worry involved at all.
We discover how amazing we are as humans when we break down and grow up to the truth of what life really is. Fear of feeling pain has us avoid living. People will not take chances and make changes in relationships, jobs, locations and more because they are afraid of the unknown.
Everything is unknown and may change in an instant no matter what you do, or how strong you hold onto what is, in this moment. There are no guarantees that you will not die, that your partner will not leave you, that health will not fail, or that your home or job, or what you based your life on will not disappear.
Let go of perfect, how it is supposed to be and live your life freely in love. Take care of your body, mind and spirit as if you will live forever, and live each day as if it is your last with gusto and grace. Life is to be lived with no regrets or expectations.
Being real instead of ideal can be the most exciting adventure. Real safety and strength is the ability to move with what is and make the best of it. Change occurs every moment. Live with your eyes and heart open, take action, choose wisely and live fully.
Enjoy the Journey,
Be The Medicine, Live the Power of You!
