This world does indeed ‘feel’ such an isolating place at times. But there is a balance, the occasional beautiful hug, be it human or puppy. Sometimes we even hug the poor postman for a surprise visit with a package 🤣
But that ‘alienation’ has a big purpose. It asks us to go within, test our hearts in where it is so that a little more can be discovered as we peel away that fear of life. Probably the biggest thing I see for everyone is those doubts built from what we learn from our upbringing. And those very things ask us to go beyond those beliefs so that we can truly understand us within them, and the love that had been hidden behind our emotional walls.
It is a very powerful thing, hard but when seen you will never doubt again, see a love so profound and be glad of every step you have ever taken. All I ask who have seen it, say the same thing…they would not ever change a step, not a breath, not a moment in time for what is waiting in that discovery. When they ‘see’ and understand, the look in their eyes is a lifetime of weight being dropped off their shoulders, a relief immeasurable…and tears, big beautiful tears for what they have found. Oh, and something I haven’t spoken of before…a realization that it all wasn’t them. In fact an understanding that it was all a very purposeful time so that they could see, no blaming, no holding anything any more. Just a beautiful knowledge that what they have been given is in fact that love and happiness we have ever searched for, even though it sometimes feels like we have been down in a very big hole.
One cannot be understood without the other, and yes it does seem contradictory. Digging away in a big dirty hole, half the time in darkness, half in doubt we will ever find anything…but…and as I have always said…we cannot know and appreciate happiness truly, unless we experience sadness too, and as it does through all of our emotions. This over all journey does exactly the same, we must experience our ‘conditional’ love with all its fears and emotional baggage so that we will finally see and truly appreciate unconditional love when we discover it.
One cannot be done without the other, and it is a long journey. But it is because of that very thing that we will truly appreciate it when it comes. That discovery in our world will be beyond handfuls of diamonds or gold, it will be so beyond anything you could even think of. And that discovery, which we touch on every day trying to understand our journey, is the balance to finally reach our destination 😀❤️🙏
