WAKING TO TRUTH
When we have our eyes closed we can't see our patterns to alter them. As we open our eyes and learn to discern an inapproriate behaviour, we can make a conscious adult decision to act in a new way.
One of the commonest defences we have is denial.
Denial, however, is a form of self betrayal.Our body will draw it to our attention with aches and pains or lethargy. As we take the risk of acknowledging our hidden feelings to ourself, we place our foot on the ladder to wholesome relationships and vibrant health.
However painful the truth is, it is better than the rumbling thunder clouders of inner deception - for honesty has a resonance which lightens and heals. Only when feelings are claimed and aired can an intimate and joyful relationship develop.
At some level we know everything.
Denial is a coping strategy which does not ultimately serve our purpose on earth. We are here to become transparent conscious beings.
We are always where we are NOW because we have placed ourselves there to learn. At any given moment we are in the perfect place with the perfect people for our growth.
