The work we are blessed with shows our weakest times; gentle moments when we forget how to spell humility and are overcome with confidence. Truth comes and knocks at us a bit. Life’s ornately framed mirrors, some smokey and dusty and others crystal clear, are our closest friends in this life. The annoying traits we see in those people are ours, for we are one and we win when we listen and laugh simultaneously because seriousness is an aversion to softness and therefore promotes it at the most inconvenient of times. Blessed are those who laugh at their own folly, because shame is not in the recipe of growth.
Remember that you learned the beautiful place you lived was not your sanctuary, but that it allowed you to find it within you. Your inner peace is all you are seeing out there. The hermit cannot serve her community away in her cabin on the hill. She can retreat back when her work is done or intermittently, but the human version of her cannot forget that she is one with all and not complete in her mortal state alone. She is mastery and a creator of life; her love, not expended with her counterparts, is sorrow.
Be more gentle this round my love, my self. You gave forcible a good go already. This chapter is for patience and silence. Knowledge is shown not told, so share your learnings. Teaching is within you, but maybe not at school. You will know when you are followed what you were meant to show. Do not seek it, you have it already, and it will come up when it’s meant to. Meditate even though that spoiled dog snores between your legs, it is beneficial to gift yourself a moment for communication with your needs. Stillness is the forefather of action.
Your power is such that it’s never in you to be downtrodden because of your lacking. You have such a strength here it is opposite; responsibility weighs on you, because you know that if you wish it, you can create it. Your wanting will become fine-tuned. What a precious and fragile gift to be yours. Your realm, which is all-inclusive, is a shining light to be served at your every moment, you cannot become empty when your stores are everything, entirely. You need only remember you are full.
