A wholeness that has been forgotten

As you continue on the path, you are sure to meet many orphans of the heart – abandoned ones of the psyche and the somatic world – who have been turned away and denied holding in the vastness that you are.

Sadness, shame, grief, and rage – ancient travelers an on old journey, tired and in need of rest. Loneliness, disappointment, confusion, and fear – secret messengers of the dark and of the light… sent from inside to remind you of a wholeness that you have forgotten.

As a little one – with a sensitive, ripening nervous system – you were unable to provide safe passage for the uninvited guests, clear sanctuary in which their wisdom could part the veil. But they have not given up. Whether as a conversation, a sunset, or buried in the crystals of the newly fallen snow. As a surging emotion or as a vivid, translucent figure of the dream world, they are accessible at all times, and will never turn from you.

These ones will continue to erupt out of the body of the beloved as emissaries of integration, unfolding greater levels of cohesion and drawing you to union. Their invitation is simultaneously wild, loving, and outrageously fierce: dare to see that you have always, already been home.

Surrender the spell of unworthiness and the dream of a love coming in the future. Love is only now.
