For How Long Do You Suffer?

The keys to our freedom are in our hands. Yet so often we ignore them, brush them off, put them to the side or outright deny them. The keys to our freedom rest in our willingness to walk into and sit with the paradox of our dilemmas. We have been taught to avoid our own shadows, our fears, the things that go bump in the night and wake us up. Yet it is in the darkness that we have the potential for growth. Seeds sprout and take root in the dark. Our creativity is also borne out of our willingness to take a walk on our own dark sides.

So for how long will you suffer your fears? Carrying them around on your back, on your chest, weighing you down and keeping you from your greatness?

It is through walking into the pain that releases it and allows us to grow into something greater. The release is in the surrender; in the trust that we will survive our emotions, our inner conflicts and paradoxes.

One of the great cosmic jokes is that in embracing our pain, we are finally able to be free of it.

Writing out my thoughts has helped me to gain a new perspective of myself. In sharing these writings, it is my hope to help others to better understand themselves. It is my belief that with each of us who chooses this path of greater understanding of thy self, that it inspires others to do the same. This building momentum is the force that drives me to share, for in my vulnerability, I find my strength. I believe that you can also find yours there. ~~~In reading some of my posts, you will see that growth is not always pretty. It is in breaking apart and coming undone that a seed sprouts and breaks free of its own captivity. It is also out of mud that the lotus blossoms. ~~~Please join me in seeing the beauty of growth within the deconstruction of our limiting beliefs. ~~T.C.

    1. Yet it can be such a daunting thing to do. Though I’ve been doing this for years, sometimes I forget, too! Had to embrace a few good doses of pain today 🙂
      I hope you are well, dear Joseph!

    1. Miriam, you make my heart smile! Maybe one day we’ll meet in person. Lately, my posts have kind of been me speaking to myself. I went through a good bit of pain today and was reminded that I could have done something sooner…better late than never! ❤ Much love to you, Miriam!

      2. Miriam, yes, life can be a constant battle! It’s hard to accept when in the thick of it, but I also believe the pain is growth if we don’t get stuck in the pain. That’s the catch: move into the pain.🌹 xo

    1. Thank you! I’m so glad to hear that this was what you needed when you needed it. I often find the lessons are the same and must be relearned time and time again! ❤ best regards to you, as well, Cara!
