We have been conditioned to bury our wounding in shame under layers of masks, one on top of each other, until we forget who we really are.
And as a result, we follow paths based on what the masks tell us is the right way for it, often, veering us away from our truth. We follow the distraction of others' agendas and boxes and in doing so, waste time and become numb against the pull of our own light, keeping us from connecting with the light of others.
These distractions can take form in things that appear to be right, like spiritual microwaves that promise the speedy path to happiness. These shortcuts, like positive thinking and partial meditations, certainly can help but only skim the surface of what we're looking for.
These glossy masks don't make the wounds go away but instead, makes them stronger. They control us by keeping us small.
What we are looking for is behind the masks, not outside of them.
What we are looking for is the gift that the wounding, conscious and subconscious, is waiting to be received, integrated, metabolized, and transmuted so that we can be effortlessly whole.
"The moment we absorb the lesson, the wounding disappears." (Maga)
We are taught to avoid our wounds and their shame and guilt and yet, this is exactly where our greatest gifts lay. Their liberation yields a light that is indescribably beautiful and right....and I suppose that is why we've been socialized to fear the wounds' shadows.
It's so much easier to control our soul's breath by keeping it shallow then to let it inhale its expansiveness and exhale its universal power for good.
Our wounds are a part of us and want to be made whole by having its interrupted light released with a blessing.
The True Life Roadmap outlines the simple and practical ways to see the wounds' masks and remediate them so that what lies hidden surfaces in the radiance that's yours alone.
Being fearful to take the first step, within the familiar, is normal. Being curious to go into the still deep waters is not...and yet, is much easier to do when you realize you're finally ready to follow the fear which is actually the way to your light.
