We all have “our stories.” We walk through life, emotionally and mentally responding to what happened today, yesterday, and every day in our past. Our stories are so seemingly unique, personal, intense, defining, and all-encompassing.
Some of us are alcoholics. Some are recovering. Some don’t drink.
Some feel overweight. Some feel absolutely fabulous.
Some of us are gay. Some of us are heterosexual. Some of us may not know.
Some have been abused or raped; some feel unloved; while some have known nothing but glorious harmonious relationships.
Some of us are white, some are of color.
I could go on.
Are we really that different?
Not really. Our “stories” and earthly experiences today, in the past, and what’s to come, simply do not define “who we really are.”
What does matter is that we each are woven into this sacred and wonderful fabric of life, love, and Oneness.
Our stories may not allow us to feel very good, worthy, or loved, but we ARE loved, unconditionally because a divine, pure, and unadulterated love resides in a sacred space deep within each of us.
Imagine that. We all have a part of us – a sacred space - that is untouched and unscathed by any hurt, wound, or rejection…a loving space that is totally separate from our earthly experience or “story.”
I breathe…deeply. I release my breath.
I inhale again. And release.
My breath is all that matters.
With my breaths I release my story. I release my fears, my anger, my hurt, and all mental and emotional noise and chatter that invades this space.
With each breath, I have no ego. I choose my divine self instead.
I am now deep in that space where I feel free, at ease, surrounded and comforted by warm light. I am not alone. I am strong. I am protected. I am creative. I am happy. And, I am at peace because I know that I am loved.
My mind is blank. My story fades. It’s gone.
Silence and stillness surround me. The feeling is magnificent. I remember now, and recognize “who I really am.”
I remember – yes, I remember - that I am, first and foremost, a divine spark of absolute Goodness and that love is available to me every moment of every day.
