the laying down of a proposition or thesis, a point of view adopted and held to, a situation that confers advantage or preference.
When we take a certain position on an issue, we are simply putting our beliefs on it, often times to the detriment of what we really want. While me may only see the differences, we fail to see all of the similarities, because our focus is only on how things will not work, instead of how fabulous they will.
Why on earth do we do this? Because we are conditioned to protecting ourselves, no matter the cost, even at the expense of our own happiness. We may look for validation outside of ourselves in some form or another, which is essentially giving our personal power away.
The greatest and only gift we will ever need, which is our inner knowing, also called intuition, tells us the truth all along, we just refuse to listen to it.
We bury our thoughts, our hearts and our internal knowing out of protection. If we have been hurt in the past and are still carrying this wounding, which always started in childhood, we will self sabotage ourselves for the remainder of our lives, until we understand that WE are keeping away the very thing we want.
Why would we do that? We say we want one thing, but when it shows up we reject it out of a fear of being hurt. So much pain resides under the surface in us all, that we fail to remember that a rose can grow from the concrete; a poem by Tupac Shakur.
Yes, it is true. Even the person who thinks they are so cracked or damaged, is worthy of love.
Have you ever been walking somewhere and see a flower blossoming in a very obscure place? You wonder how it got there because it looks as though it doesn’t belong, and yet somehow it’s there, taking in the sun’s light and thriving.
It grows because of the light. No matter where we are in our lives or what position we take on any given issue, if we simply follow the light, we will blossom.
It matters not how different you are from someone, what truly matters, is how they make you feel.
Be the rose, the obscure flower that finds the light in the darkness and allow yourself the opportunity to grow with someone, instead of growing further and further away from your true essence.
We are all worthy of love, but we have to open our hearts in order to receive it.
