As we grow!
Tic Toc Tic Toc goes the clock, it robs us and restores us at the same time. We are always arriving and beginning all the while evolving into something different with each moment;
Growing up my kids had their blankies, the one object they would not go to bed or sleep without. It was a fiasco when we could not find it.
Our special blankets, rabbits, baby bears, or whatever we found comfort in over time revealed it’s true nature. It taught us how to console ourselves, love ourselves because that object became the reflection of authenticity; unconditional love. The source of our comfort when we found ourselves worn out through the trials of being human, having fears and/or our lack of understanding of our surroundings and interactions.
Over time everything changes, everything shows us what is real and of course, ‘real’ is different for everyone.
Life will deliver bumps and grinds, but it will also show us how we meet ourselves through our interactions with people, places, and things. Everything in life is the perfect mirror if we are willing to look. With practice, we can accept what we see and love ourselves anyway. It all comes with letting go!
But what is real, is LOVE this genuine feeling of peace within every cell of your being. An unexplainable understanding that all is as it needs to be.
Each day, I find comfort in myself, knowing I ‘AM’! Dolby Dharma
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get all loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
