A new world

It may seem that your greatest fear is that you are not loved. To let this all the way in requires an opening into ever-ripening heartbreak.

But to allow in the reality that you are fully loved exactly as you are is the end of your world as you have come to know it. When the trance of unlove falls away, nothing will ever be the same again.

You will no longer be able to stay on the sidelines, safe from the risk that groundless, embodied love will always require. You will never again be able to rely on the narrative of unworthiness to shield you from the eruption of intimacy that is occurring inside and around you at all times.

You will no longer be able to hold back, demanding that you first ‘heal your past,’ wiggle into a state of ‘high vibration,’ and ‘manifest’ all the amazing things you think you want. Nor will you any longer have the option to embody only a small band of the full-spectrum of feeling, emotion, and outrageous vulnerability that is available here. The only option left is that of a wandering emissary of wholeness, a luminous vessel in which all of love’s qualities may find safe passage here.

Watch, now, as the spell of postponement is broken. Sink into the muddy earth and look up into the moon and out at the stars. Feel the raw warmth of your heart as it beats and softens. Stay attuned with your senses as they open to receive. The narrative of unworthiness is fading into eternal, unfolding space.

When it is impossible to claim for even one more moment that you are unworthy of the wild, untamed love that is your birthright, your perception will be cleansed, and you will see the new world that is already here.
