When you first meet someone the conversation usual flows to what you do and who you are. You can tell a lot about a person about how they define themselves. If they say they are a mother to three beautiful children, you know they value family. If their answer is a lawyer, then it’s their career they consider most important…most people define themselves by the things they’ve accomplished and their physical traits.
So when I sit with this question the list of things that have been used to describe me (female, daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, massage therapist, personal trainer, reiki master, doula, etc) start running through my head. But who am I really?
I am human.
A physical manifestation of pure energy. My soul is gender less, it is neither light nor dark because it encompasses all things, I have no other divine purpose than to experience this life for all it’s worth. The ups, downs, heartbreak, joyous moments, and all the career paths I have chose are all part of my experience.
We are made perfectly, there is nothing about us that HAS to change. We are complete & whole. Anyone who makes us feel otherwise has not come to peace with that concept themselves. When we recognize every aspect of our being we begin to see it in others. The prejudices end and real heart-centered love starts.
That’s the secret. Humanity doesn’t need healing or saving…it needs recognition and acceptance. All other species of plants & animals do this naturally. We have forgotten how to human. Competition and fear rules our daily lives because if we have nothing to fear than how can we be controlled? What’s the biggest underlying fear humans experience? Death.
Some see death as the worst thing that could happen to a person. Without fear, you’ll understand that it is the second most beautiful thing that happens in a lifetime (birth being the first, DUH!). Dying doesn’t need to be scary or difficult. It’s a natural process that we instinctively know how to to…like with most things we just have forgotten as a species HOW to do it.
When all is said and done, the human species will continue to transition in to & out of this reality. Don’t fear the uncertainty of how or when these things come to be. Instead revel in amazement that you can bear witness to all the extraordinary things this life has to offer from beginning to end!
