Do You Truly Desire Liberation Or Do You Like Your Prison?


Do you want to be liberated?

Do you truly wish to live a life 100% free and in the flow of peace and harmony?

If I may just give you this image, this experience, this full-body activation of what you desire…

Close your eyes.

Go to your perfect place in your mind.

There joins your most perfect human experience of warmth, safety, love, and light.

If it’s your grandmother, she holds you.

If it’s your precious Italian aunt, as it is for me, she speaks the kindest words of love to you that you’ve experienced.

She holds you and all that is bad in the world disappears and, while you didn’t recognize it at the time, you feel the perfection of God’s love and safety move through her directly into your open, unguarded, loving heart space.

Sit in her love.

Feel her safe, warm embrace, the embrace, in truth, of God filling you, in the perfect place you’ve created in your mind.

Now ask yourself again if you truly desire liberation?

Is peace what you really seek?

Is harmony in its purest, most innocent form really what you desire — or do you like your prison?

In truth, do you really want to just be together with the suffering masses or instead do you truly desire total oneness with Source?

Ask yourself again before you close your eyes to go back to your perfect place in your mind with your sacred ancestor.

Because now when you close your eyes, you and your sacred ancestor together welcome your rapist.

You welcome the person from this experience who made you feel the most unsafe and unloved.

And you both open your arms and invite them to your embrace.

Your vibration does not change.

You love them so much it’s overwhelming and cannot be contained.

You are so centered in the purity and innocence of love that welcoming the service of your rapist with the deepest of connection is exactly the same as that of your most sacred lost relative.

Close your eyes.

Stay with it.

Do you truly desire liberation?

Or do you like your prison?

Life Seeks To Live You, So Get Out Of Your Own Way & Let It

"The “guru” of whom you speak is, despite how he presents himself, likely a human being with deep flaws his spirit-centeredness has allowed him to overlook. More than that, he has positioned himself in an environment where his failure to integrate his shadows can be heralded as an act of spiritual greatness. Deep bow to you for not being fooled, and deep bow to all who have recognized the invalidation of their selfhood as unjust. I hesitate to say your story is so common it seems to be an unfortunate rite of passage for the wild woman because I do not, in any way, believe abuse, spiritual or otherwise, is necessary in order to grow. I will say that in the absence of safe spaces where feminine and soulful spirituality can be cultivated, shared, and empowered, we will seek out such unholy sanctuaries as the one you describe because they offer us a diluted taste of spiritual nourishment." —Danielle Dulsky of @wolfwomanwitch ➵ Submit your magic to The Urban Howl!
