Something I wrote back in March and am finding relevance to now.
Freedom vs connection:
Here’s the thing, they don’t have to oppose each other. Independence does not require isolation. I know better than most how it feels to fear commitment because it goes hand in hand with manipulation. But it doesn’t have to be like that. Co-dependence can only exist if both parties allow it to. You have so much more control over your emotions, connections and reality than you realize. Independent individuals can come together to connect and compliment each other without the threat of losing unique nature or freedoms. The love, life and reality you experience is the one you have come to expect. Start assuming the Universe will come through for you- it will. Believe in the love you feel in your heart even if it has never been actualized….because it is real. && Just like magic, you’ll never find out where it is unless you choose to open your eyes and mind to it.
These past few months have been an absolute metamorphosis for me. Mentally, emotionally and spiritually…& Even though I have experienced a lot of chaos, I feel like the calm in the center of the storm. I opened my eyes to the magical possibilities that exist all around me and suddenly nothing scares me or hurts me or even gives me regret Because I get it- the resounding response I hear any time I lend my ear to the divine cosmos says;
“We are all in this together, love will set us free.”
The answer was right in front of my third eye all along…
“The fear you feel is irrelevant here for it is connected to your past- a construct of the ego.”
I’ve heard the theory that in order to be free- one must obtain all their desires and then lose everything. Perhaps we fear love because in order to feel true love (and by true I mean divine) We must sacrifice the love of ones self for the love of the higher self.
The only way to meet God is to call to him by name.
