A special ally

There is a momentous shift in your center of gravity when you fully allow in the reality that there is nothing wrong with you. And that the mere presence of very intense feelings, emotions and narratives is not evidence that something is wrong or that you have failed. Rather, it is evidence of how alive you are.

The implications of this will change your world forever, and it is important to be honest as to whether this is really what you want.

While there is a part of us that genuinely longs to heal and to awaken, there are unconscious parts that know what is required. The unworthy one, the unseen one, the unlovable one, and the flawed one… they have been your trusted emissaries on a long journey, and have served to protect you from the surging immediacy of your raw, naked, vulnerability.

Without them you will be left with nothing, with everything, and with the relentless creativity and openness of the human heart. But this realm is that of the unknown and will never, ever conform to how you thought it was going to be.

The forms that love take will always fall apart, for this is their nature. But love itself is that which never comes and goes. If we become too fused with a specific form we believe we need love to take, our heart will always break when love recycles that form for something new, which it always will. Honor the forms while they are here and then allow them to reorganize.

Before you spin to heal your broken heart, ask first if it wishes to be mended. Heartbreak is a special ally and is unlike any other, for it is out of this brokenness that love will find safe passage here.
