All too often, being loved bombed with superficial approval is equally as unfulfilling as being on the receiving end of criticism. In either case, it feels as if the experience is more about the other person than having anything to do with you.
This can leave you feeling lonely and invisible since the true gift yearning to be received is a reflection of understanding from another person’s viewpoint. In truth, you may seek to know how clearly others understand you in an attempt to have a better understanding of yourself. And so, when someone who doesn’t fully understand themselves seeks to find a greater understanding of self in the misunderstandings being worked out in others, only greater confusion, sadness, and disappointment may be found.
Once you truly understand who you are, why you are here, and exactly all that you came to do within the framework of your individual form, you are able to connect and communicate with others—whether you are seen, heard, valued, overlooked, ignored, or denied.
While you may not choose to nurture these types of one-sided connections on a regular basis, when such interactions are meant to occur, you can communicate from a space of sovereignty and safety that frees you from the burden of expectation.
This is why you inevitably learn to be the source of your own deepest understandings of self. It occurs by turning attention inward toward the sacred practice of loving self-care. For if you don’t fully understand yourself on the deepest possible level, then perhaps you are the very mystery and adventure you came here to explore.
In this moment and in each breath throughout life, may you deepen your understanding of self as the mystery of existence that all dimensions, time, and space celebrate as the magnificent work of art known as you.
When life is more of a mystery to explore and less of a constant point to prove, it is so much easier to be connected and engaged with the sacred truth of reality—revealing itself in you.
I bow to the truth that you are and honor the light you shine—no matter how often or infrequently it enters your awareness.
As always, this is only the beginning of life’s most immaculate awakening. Like a gift being opened by the hands of the Cosmos where you are revealed as the present being received.
All for light. All for life.
All for Love,
