How I look in the mirror

The challenges come in and flow out… keep us awake and draw us like a magnet to the very things we know as spiritual people we have to get through—- issues/dramas/stresses we dont want (usually)…
sometimes we look forward to dealing with it, other times its a strain, we find ourselves taking different paths and doing different things that are to do with karma we are yet to understand….
how can we put it into words? how can we sing it? how can we walk it out of us? how can we get to the other side? etc etc etc… and the wheel turns again… the moon folds new layers of light from within as we keep on travelling the road of our individual journey.
We are blessed by loved ones, families, children, partners, friends, acquaintances & people we disgree with to extend our awareness to ourselves. Yet if we are continually worrying for them and not tending to our own needs as well, we are not balanced.
The balance is in our thoughts…. if i dont have time for me, even if everyone wants my time, i have to give to myself in order to give to them.
The cycle of testing your ego never ends and becomes hopefully wiser with every incident, good & bad (ideally).
Although a journey is within this wisdom and every other teaching that rises up to say hello on a regular basis.
Laughter is the only thing that keeps me sane when the pressure’s on.
The in-between moments to get through it all is at times the most testing of character and difficult to not become overwhelmed by fear.
Its always there, its easy to swim in our fears and embrace them, hold onto them, let them fester and grow inside us…. we havent been educated to know how to deal with the in-between bits.
So we ask, we look, our eyes open, we see, we connect, we have gratitude for finding the light inside and know that every knock in life will only make me more determined to shine brighter……… bcoz i’ve worked hard for it, i’ve looked inside, meditated, faced what i see as ugly and shameful in myself, looked at the anger, the tears, released them with pain, anger, then finally love, then blankness… its still there yet vibrates on a level of light not darkness, a heaviness that weighs our souls down to not be able to feel the freedom our spirit can give us.
