What brutal facade protects on the surface masks a deeper frailty underneath.
Bullies are a dying breed.
To ask of you to have compassion for brutal forces may seem like an impossible task, but the time and the asking of you will come. What is marked on the outside as “other” is a reflection of the healing needed on the inside. You must and you will find the courage to stand in your heart for what is free. Your conviction will encourage compassion. And as you look your demons in the eyes you will notice a tear is shed, just to the side.
It is a time for you to grow. In the face of adversity your armor will always be the symbol of your soul bearing grace form your heart. Mourn not your personal losses, but of the common loss of innocence.
It is precisely these moments of destruction that deliver who you are, define who you will become and reveal who you will serve. Invite your heart to speak for you. What is hopeful is also rugged.
The energy forming around you is there as if to carry you all the way down stream on an adventure you may not have initially chosen for yourself. Part of the lesson here is to let go and pay attention. Unpredictability is the form of Grace reminding you of the bigger mystery, the cosmic order of things. Sometimes there is nothing to prepare you for the phases to come.
Having a central practice to keep you grounded and focused is essential. In times of great change you must own your center, acknowledge when your wounds are speaking for you and authorize a new voice to be heard.
Listen to your heart. This takes commitment. This voice is there for you. It is small and it is loud. She speaks volumes of wisdom, but comes only when you fully respect her truest desire. There is a flame, a spark, a fire in you anew that can be seen by nightfall. When all others have returned home you will have chosen to stay. initiated into the folds of what you needed to hear. By the fireside of your transformation the wise one will rise, whispering to you about the journey ahead. Only you will know the unfolding, an essential seed, and like a star she will make you shine.
