I love you. Despite whatever you may be feeling right now, you are not incomplete. You are, within yourself, fully alive. Every decision you have made has been from love and from the highest consciousness available to you at the time. Life will not always be easy. You will experience loss, despair, sorrow, grief, guilt, anger, depletion, sadness and shame. You will experience joy, courage, resiliency, ease, fortitude, abundance, peace, love, and swagger. Sometimes, most times, you will have any combination of these feelings at the same time. This is the journey. Be on your own team. Be a bold enough spirit not to simply transcend all of it but to embrace all of it. Yes, it’s true, you are not your emotions but there is no spiritual bypass surgery. You are here, an infinite soul, experiencing life as a human being. This is your dharma. No one person gives you validity or your light. You are self luminous. You don’t need another to feel whole. But when you realize your innate wholeness, you may share your light & life with another who is equally & inherently so. The way this looks may not unfold to your personal preference. But in the end, this is about living a full life, your life. Risk pain for the chance to deeply and authentically love & be loved. Risk being judged. Risk being weird. Have the strength to be vulnerable. Be down when you’re down but when it’s time, pick yourself up by the bootstraps and reclaim your mojo. You got this.
