Stories – From My Heart
Do you ever wonder “What is the
truth? What is real?”
One of the things I’ve been working
with over the last couple of years
are the stories I tell myself.
The gap between my experience of
the Divine inside me, and the moments
where things aren’t meshing or jiving
with my perception of who I am – or
in relationship with other people remains
an interesting challenge for me.
It’s easier for me to see the disconnect
in relationship with other people because
I can blame them when things are out of
sync. And as quickly as I do (or within
a couple of minutes, hours, or days, LOL!)
I can remember that the “out of sync”
experience with the other person is
showing me something about myself.
In these moments of frustration and
disappointment I ask myself “what is
real?” And the answer comes: My
wholeness – and the other’s wholeness
are real. The wholeness of each of us
on the planet no matter what we have
done to others, or what has been done
to us – that’s real.
I find that when I’m caught with my
own story I can be more frustrated,
but when I step back to what is real,
I’m less frustrated – able to observe
without getting caught in the drama.
It’s one thing to practice experiencing
my wholeness as part of my spiritual
routine each day, but practicing the
wholeness of others when I’m
disappointed or frustrated with how
I’m being treated or what’s happening
in the relationship is something I’m
still working on.
I’m reminded that the areas of dissonance
that remain become more pronounced
the more I step into complete resonance.
And I wonder: Where is that dissonance
that is bringing me this experience. What
I am I to learn?
Today I don’t have any answers to these
questions. I know that I will again fully
experience my wholeness before I go to
bed tonight as part of my Beneath the
Sand practice. Today that will be enough.
That’s it for this week…From My Heart.
