The Sorrow of Loss

img_4235
Can it be that we struggle daily to find ourselves? Is it our truth and essence that sits deep within but which we cannot grasp that calls to us? We know of a place that is not here but still there is a loss that stirs our soul to all that we believe in. What is the essence of this loss? Why do we fill with sorrow? Is it of this lifetime or a past lifetime?

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.” -Buddha

Many of us have experienced some form of abuse in our lives but what if this so called abuse is generational? How can we eliminate further emotional, physical or mental abuse from our daughters/sons and their daughter/sons. Abuse is not solely characterized as an issue that only women experience. Yet, we the women of the world carry the cross squarely on our hearts filled with this ache of sorrow and loss. Can this loss that we desire to find be that of emotionally feeling and witnessing unconditional love. Generationally, everyone has done the best they knew how to do but the energy today screams for us to forgive and to love unconditionally. This is the sorrow I write of. This is the loss we all have experienced.

“Poisonous relationships can alter our perception. You can spend many years thinking you’re worthless. But you’re not worthless, you’re unappreciated.” -Steve Maraboli

We as a people, community, society, neighborhood and family are ripe to feel loved. Finally, the past does not fit into the present no longer. Anger, fear, hate, prejudice, criticism and judgment has no place in today’s world because there is too deep a sorrow felt for the loss of yesterday that has been experienced. Love is the present solution for all to release our karma and that which no longer serves us.

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.” -Louise L. Hay”

img_4234With love as a foundation at this time we will finally know the meaning and truth to the words, “Love your neighbor as you Love yourself!” The sorrow of loss is that many do not know how to love themself because of the pain they have been witness to by abuse in their lives. Abuse fills the heart and mind with the simple thought that, I am not worthy of being loved!” The different forms of abuse a child, young adult, teenager, wife, husband or parent experiences wears the personality down to a deep emptiness that something is missing in life. We try to fill this emptiness with addictions of many kinds and material possessions. However, the soul knows nothing is missing because we are all born as beings of love and light. The love we do not receive because of the generational aspect that pushes forward on its own must be stopped today.

Abuse has been rampant in many of our lives but no longer is acceptable today. The main tool to release the sorrow of loss at this time is to begin to meditate daily. This simple but profound tool of healing carries the benefit of connecting you to your soul and releasing what no longer serves you. Be aware that your children and their children shall benefit from you consciously ending the sorrow of loss due to abuse of any kind. There is truth in the fact that when you love yourself just as you are, no matter what you have been told by another, you will experience a connection to that part of you that is called your God-self! We are here to like God and to be of service.

LA BELIEVES …

Dream – Awaken – Dream

Right now at this moment in time IAM a woman with many dreams to fulfill. It is all I can do to contain myself as I wait, but what am I waiting for? It is the virtue of patience that IAM very good at, mixed with a lot of endurance. It is with this acceptance that I live my life and acknowledge all that is to be. IAM not a child but a woman who has lived a life that was never ever questioned by me. One of my gifts is to pick myself up by connecting to my God-self. The first dream on this amazing journey of my life was to begin to question who I was which opened a door that led me to a path that stirred the passions of my own purpose. I wonder today if I can be other than a published author? Do I have what it takes to help another through the written word or by my speech and actions? My motto is that I believe anything is possible once we choose to make a difference in life. However, one cannot do anything at all without God!

I look back on the past sixty-two years of my existence that was sheltered but very comfortable and familiar with the love of my family and friends. Basically, IAM an introvert, a loner who dreams in the vastness of my own imagination. Yet, IAM a seeker of knowledge today who strives to share with all how powerful we are. I find that others can be very judgmental, mean and hurtful towards me that makes me slip silently back to yesterday and agree with them. Then I remember who IAM because in the pit of my stomach lies a pulse that quickens and tells me to stay true to self – for they do not know.

Unconditional love means accepting each and everyone as they are to walk their own journey, make their own choices and being aware that no one knows what is best for another in any situation. Difficult, yes, but the only way to allow one to connect to their God-self. The ego fills us with fear! Roaring at us about everything that does not matter. God fills us with love! Whispering like a feather that floats by that He rests within. Ego takes us outside of ourselves. God leads us within to where He is.

My path is moving or shifting in a few months and I truly do not know where IAM headed but I trust God does. Another may say that IAM courageous and strong but I think IAM curious to see all that I can accomplish; whether it be through the written word of my writing as in blogging, publishing another book, traveling, educating myself further or just meeting interesting people and simply belonging somewhere other than the memories of yesterday. I have learned to take the good memories because I believe they have brought me to this page but its so easy to slip back into silence. IAM walking away from the life of silence to survive. Yesterday can no longer be for me. It is the new day that I await with love to guide me. To know and understand that IAM following that which is offered by the universe allows me to let go of worry. I truly trust and believe that there is a process to life. Today I look at my life as an existence that has its own strength and IAM simply a form to be used to live this life. 

Only I can live this life! No one has the right to silence anyone, harm anyone or even try to degrade another in anyway. The spirit of love and peace fills my spirit. There are no regrets, no fears but only the truth of my self as I connect with all that is. There is a vastness to life that is besides all our journeys as if we are living a dream. Along the journey of life we must awaken from the dream and know our truth to survive.
