Your inner family is gathering around you

These are the great fears that come as you wake, as you dream, and as you wander along the path of the heart.

But perhaps the greatest fear of all is the fear of being loved, and the dissolving of the trance of unlove once and for all.

For when you are truly loved, when you are entirely seen, when you are fully held, it is the end of your world as you know it. Life is always seeing you in this way.

If you will allow this revelation in, you will never be the same again. You will no longer be able to pretend that you are other than radiant and whole as you are. In every relationship and through every circumstance, you will watch in astonishment as the spell of unworthiness is dissolved in front of your very eyes. 
The unlovable one, the unworthy one, and the unseen one are arising now not as obstacles on the journey, but as the portals into the intimacy, connection, and aliveness that is raging around you. Your inner family is gathering around you, longing for integration and to reorganize the world as you have come to know it.

To let in the implications of this is utterly exhilarating. And completely terrifying simultaneously. One world is ending so that the true world may appear from behind the veil. But somehow you know that you have come here to embody this.

  1. I am awestruck by these words. Simply astounded. You are like Dumbledore pulling out the finest silver strands of experience, and then weaving them into something recognizable-- a soul blueprint. I can't begin to tell you how your words make nuanced human experience feel relevant and beautifully neutral at the same time. I have been asking as long as I can remember what comes next in conversation with another, when we've embodied what you speak of within ourselves. You paint a sweeping image of the beingness that would beget new life together. Thank you for being a stranger that travels so intimately close by. Thank you for reminding me it is all worth it, that there is purpose, and that it is life-giving to live with a wide-open heart.
