We already have all the tools we need to show up in the world without fear. We hold the ability to care, to love, to support, and to embrace. We do it all the time in our lives, yet we don’t use these gifts of spirit when it really matters. We have become fearful because we have forgotten the deep truth that is us. Not the "you" who has suffered, not the "you" who has lost, and not the "you" who has been treated unfairly. It’s the "we" who have suffered, the "we" who have lost, and the "we" who have been treated unfairly.
On the journey through life, you’re always going to have to deal with people, and people are going to teach you how to deal with yourself. See the beautiful symbiosis here?
When you are not anchoring yourself in love, you convince yourself that you are not safe, and you exude this energy when conversing with others. Time and time again, I have seen people control others because they do not feel safe enough to let them show up as they are. Perhaps because their perception is different, or they are not grounded in their own truth enough to let someone else be grounded in theirs.
How many relationships have come to an end because someone was not willing to accept and let the other person present themselves? How many wars have we fought because we were unable to allow someone else to be with us as they are, without feeling the need to change them? Instead of trying to understand one another’s social and cultural differences, we had to judge, condemn, barricade, dismiss, annihilate, and suppress—all because we were afraid and couldn’t remain steady in love.
