Dreaming of Love

Looking for Unconditional Love

Dreaming of LoveI found this passage from Orion Mountain Dreamer and it struck me with so much truth. When looking for love are you only looking skin deep or do you want to know those things behind the facade?

True unconditional love is found in getting to know the ALL… What lies beneath the superficial…..the good, the bad and everything in between.

It also take a great deal of introspection and courage to know these things (within our own hearts and minds) about ourselves. Maybe the following isn’t even about what someone wants to know about another but a way to go within to know ourselves at a deep, profound level.

“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living. I want to know what you ache for, and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are. I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool for love, for your dream, for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what planets are squaring your moon. I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow, if you have been opened by life’s betrayals or have become shriveled and closed from fear of further pain! I want to know if you can sit with pain, mine or your own, without moving to hide it or fade it, or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy, mine or your own, if you can dance with wildness and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your fingers and toes without cautioning us to be careful, to be realistic, to remember the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me is true. I want to know if you can disappoint another to be true to yourself; if you can bear the accusation of betrayal and not betray your own soul; if you can be faithless therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see beauty even when it’s not pretty, every day,and if you can source your own life from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure, yours and mine, and still stand on the edge of the lake and shout to the silver of the full moon, “Yes!”
It doesn’t interest me to know where you live or how much money you have. I want to know if you can get up, after the night of grief and despair, weary and bruised to the bone, and do what needs to be done to feed the children.
It doesn’t interest me who you know or how you came to be here. I want to know if you will stand in the center of the fire with me and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom you have studied. I want to know what sustains you, from the inside, when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone with yourself and if you truly like the company you keep in the empty moments.”~ Oriah Mountain Dreamer

Take a moment to breathe in and ponder what you just read. Are you open to knowing these things about another? More importantly, if someone were to tell you they would like to get to know ALL of you how would you answer? What would you share and would you be brave enough to share it?~Shine Your Light Debbie

A Healing Message: Return to Center

Each of us can be “within” and “without” as we move through our daily lives. What do I mean by within and without?

The easiest way to describe it is that when we are “within” we are aware. Aware of our surroundings. Aware of our thoughts and aware of our bodies. We are fully present and accounted for.

When we are “without” our thoughts are somewhere other than where we are in the present. We often experience feeling spacey or “out of it” and unable to connect.

There are many reasons we choose to move from center but generally it is because of competition, underlying pain, an emotional trigger or invalidation. It’s also possible we decided someone else has our answers or is better or brighter or knows more than us and so we move our energy and attention  away from ourselves. 

No matter the reason, the result is always the same. Going “without” is truly “going without”. We are without our own counsel and wisdom. We move our attention outside of ourselves which causes an inner shift and we almost instantly lose clarity.

Each of us has our inner workings and processes. These include our thoughts, feelings, emotions and spiritual connections. Then there is what goes on in the world around us. It’s easy to get caught up in those things outside of us and out of our control but the reality is when we return to center there is no “inside” or “outside” there is balance, a sense of self and neutrality. From this place we are in charge. We get to observe and actively participate in life.

Our spiritual center is a neutral, safe, quiet place where we are balanced and in charge of our lives. It is free of  “energetic charge” and opens our eyes to truth. From center we are aware of both the “within” AND the “without”. We begin to recognize what is our truth and what is not. We experience moments of peace and begin to see that most of  the drama and chaos is not really ours.

When we are centered, balanced and in charge we process then effortlessly bring in the energy and information that we have observed, learned and experienced….In other words, we bring in and have full and conscious access to our wisdom.

Each time we return to center we connect more fully with our mind, body, spirit and soul. We connect with truth, and wisdom and the more we practice centering, the more awareness we have. When we are centered we experience joy, inner strength, clarity, the freedom to be who we are, and have the courage to express ourselves and speak from the heart.~Shine Your Light Debbie
