Today is usually when I write about farming. I will write about it tomorrow. For this blog and lines of prose are written from my soul and much as a diary. I am not afraid that the world knows about our ups and downs, about our work, our life, our children. I write because every cell in my body prompts me to do so after half a cup of coffee. If my words speak to someone then it was the day to write those words. Today is not a day to write about watering more. That can wait until tomorrow, for there is more on my heart today than hoses and rabbits eating the peas.
No, today we are standing tall, pushing our chins up a bit higher, and embracing the miraculous gift of self. And the bravery it takes to step out of the mainstream expectations of peers, friends, and society to really become one’s true self.
There will always be biting tongues when you decide to enter your own, to fulfill your destiny, for the mirrors of what could have been reflect and others get defensive. People hide in their religions and contain themselves in their caves of denial and fear, or regret, and if someone is not just as they are, they must be working for the other side or must be unstable.
Goodness, how does anyone ever get the nerve to stand up and embrace their destiny, their unexplainable gifts, their sides of enchantment and wild when there is someone in their family or friends ready to snap them back down to their cubicle, church pew, and norm? This is detrimental to a soul that is traversing this land during this life with really only a handful of minutes finding and discovering their true essence, discovering frequencies above the norm, and seeing the immense beauty in the world that is unexplainable, magical, and beautiful. Let folks be. Embrace your own magic.
There is great harm in not letting someone become their own true self. There will be work undone, people and animals not helped, blind eyes turned. But, one cannot convince another to open their eyes, their minds, or their hearts. I can only speak to those of you that need courage to embrace and become your powerful and gifted self. Creator by any other name is still Creator. We are created to be so much more than destructive forces saving souls while killing spirits.
When you decide to stand up and show your true colors, when you decide to accept your gifts to benefit mankind and the natural world, when you decide that you are pretty incredible, there will be those that do not understand your work. They cannot fathom what you do. They cannot see why you are different. It doesn’t matter. Stand tall and choose your tribe wisely. This means that there will be family who are detrimental to your peace and will affect your work. Release them. Friends must be friends that accept you for who you are. If not release them. Even if you are left with five people, they are your tribe, your helpers in this life, the ones that allow you to be your true self. We should no longer be afraid of what people think.
Stand tall. Embrace your true calling. When you are doing the work that you were intended to do, every door will open so that you can be your highest self. The world is really quite enchanting, today notice a few more things you didn’t before…and stand strong. You are amazing.
