So today I created a BOUNDARY in order to nurture and cultivate honest friendships in my life that are available to create MAGIC in this world. I choose to be someone who incubates and cultivates the BIG DREAMS of the soul. That takes Authenticity. It takes Power and Presence.
Friends [in my opinion] listen to one another. They respect one another. They talk things out & even when they don’t see eye to eye… they honor one another for who they are and where they are at. Friends are friends forever if they live by what is REAL [and what is real cannot be threatened – A Course In Miracles].
I mean, every one of us is on our Journey of Life. We are each learning how to create our future in this universe while releasing the old stories of who we have believed we were and are… so we are free co-creators with Love [God; Life].
It all started when I received a message from someone asking me not to share any personal prayers/images on their facebook page because they “have to be careful” about their professional image.
My images and prayers are exactly what I feel… they just come naturally … for it’s who I am and how I feel, expressed.
My ego sparked up at first glance. I felt like that little girl inside that just got told she’s not doing it right: “What?! That was a personal message… not for business; I didn’t do anything wrong, it wasn’t profane. That was me reaching out to the wife who I thought was my friend, not attacking their religious affiliation or professional image. If they have to protect their professional image it’s not really who they are anyway, just an act. For what’s real cannot be threatened.” [The last part was the smart-alec feeling like she needed to defend herself]. Yes, my Ego can be cunning with wisdom like a serpent.
I didn’t feel good about what I was expressing in my Ego [fear-based-thinking]… I knew my energy wasn’t being elevated by the Spirit. I was angry and giving the Ego fuel. I had to stop this mis-management of power, immediately.
And then it hit me… Everyone has the right to keep up their image they want to share with the world. Sometimes our Ego is used to create an image that allows us to function in this world the way we are comfortable with. Who am I to deny someone their opportunity to build up an Ego. Love always allows me to maintain mine until I get tired of living with it and am ready for something real.
The persona that people are “acting out” or “developing/becoming” is not who they truly are. Yet, it’s not my job to judge them. It is my job to judge for myself & KNOW what it is I truly want for my life.
Yet that doesn’t deny the Truth that when we care more about the persona we are building instead of the Authentic we are… we cannot be at peace with all men [and women]. How can we? For we create boundaries when we create personas. But we become COM-UNITY MINDED when we are Authentic. And as Benny often says, “Unity begins with U. N. I [You and I].”
So here I am with a declaration. I’m not blogging to meet ACTORS. I’m blogging to put myself out there, be open hearted and make real FRIENDSHIPS with Authentic people who are on their Life Journey. I’ve lived this long believing in the UNITY which binds us all together. And I’m ready for relationships which RECIPROCATE the good, inspired one another into the flow of this magical, amazing power called Life!
