Your Authentic Self; is the best gift you can give this year.
Welcome to friends and family friday. Think of this as your weekly guide to healing at home. Life is complicated and so are we. So why do we expect we ourselves, to know how to keep it together?
Keeping it together; is not just something we do, it is a set of skills that we have to learn and develop. So with that in mind, lets all take a minute to cut both, ourselves, and everybody, everywhere, in all times and places, a lot…..and I mean a lot of slack.
Okay, enough of the slack cutting for now. There is a lot more forgiveness to come. But for now, lets focus on how we can create real change in ourselves this Christmas.
In my article, “We Have to Lose our Mind to Find our Soul”, I mention that we need to bring the sacred elements back into our lives. I aso put forward the idea, that only in the letting go of the old Self, can we make way for the new Self.
In my blog post “It Takes a Village”, I put forward the idea that our reliance of institutions, and media, to manage our inner and outer lives, has resulted in a lost connection with our own human nature. This effect has extended to the family unit as well. We as a culture, and as individual people, don’t know how to be a family or friend anymore. We have lost our sense of community, integrity, loyality, love, and honesty.
We have turned “people” into a commodity we can trade, own, and sell. The damage of this can be most obviously felt and seen in the family home.
There is a saying ” tend to the part of the garden you can touch”. Well the smallest social problem we can fix is our family. We need to make that an important goal and honoured space in our life.
The video “Honest Liars” (below), is a guide to confronting the ways that we decieve ourselves and others about our true feelings. It also describes how this destroys both us and the people we love. It is a great video to kick start self reflection. The first step to self transformation, is the confrontation with illusion.
When we live life wearing a social mask, our lives become dull and lose the sense of meaning. We get less out of and put less into our relationships. When we do this long enough, we literally forget who the authentic version of ourself is. This is perfect to kick start forgiveness, honesty and the aliveness of facing yourself.
The last video is a long listen at 1 hr 27 minutes. It is a conversation about the nonphysical energy field surrounding fthe family unit. They discuss how missing our unacknowledged family members/dynamics cause disruption, even generational. Its a soul/science explaination of family history. Speakers: Rupert Sheldrake, Ralph Abraham, & Terence McKenna.
Forgiveness is the key, we must forgive ourselves for making mistakes in the complicated game called life. We also have to forgive others(who hurt us) for their mistakes, because we are all playing the same game, and we are all confused by the rules. Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday’s.🌲🌨🌨♥♥♥♥♥🎆🎁🎁🎆🎉🎉🎅🎅🎅🎅🎅🎅🎅
