Vulnerability

Is being vulnerable a strength

Or a weakness?

Does it require surrender

Or resistance?

Dear One, the human existence is an opportunity to live in a world of dualities, not only externally, but also internally. The complexities created by human emotion combined with the illusion of being alone make it difficult to easily describe one’s personality. Perceived strength as described by your external influences may be mis-leading.

The perception of being alone feeds the belief that the more independent one is, the more strength and power one has. Relying on others is often perceived as a weakness and a liability. This feeds the illusion of lack, that more for you means less for me. Therefore, many feel the need to acquire many possessions which then require protection. Ownership and accumulated wealth are looked upon as a beacon of success in many areas of this physical plane of existence.

When you consider all that we have taught in terms of being one with all through the web of connection, the perception of singular success is an oxymoron. For if all are connected, the success of one individual means the success of all. But the success we refer to is more intangible than acquisition of possessions or status.

Dear One, the purpose of this plane of learning is to bring your innate understanding of oneness and connection into this physical existence. By laying aside your mask of independence and invincibility, you begin to lay the foundation of combining both worlds (seen and unseen). Your true nature is one of connection. You are a single cell in a universal organism of love and knowledge. It is impossible for you to exist alone.

This is where your internal duality comes into play. You intuitively know that you are one with all. And yet, you are encouraged and often respected on this physical plane for being independent and self-reliant. Showing any vulnerability is often seen as a weakness, when in fact, it is a strength. Can you begin to understand that asking for help, working within a community, sharing individual gifts for the success of the whole is your true nature?

Perfection and self-reliance are false indicators of personal growth. Understanding your connection with all of creation better serves you in your path forward. Knowing that your unique gifts combined with the unique gifts of another allows you both to reach heights neither could reach alone. Understanding that embracing your perceived imperfections in a physical world is a step forward. For these realizations evoke humility and self-love. And how can you love another in this world if you cannot first love yourself?

Dear One, remove the mask of invincibility you wear for others. Accept your imperfections. For when you can love and accept your own vulnerabilities, you can begin to have compassion for others on their path of self-discovery.

Personal gain is an illusion. The forward path is paved with opportunities to live with a foot in both worlds; the physical existence you now experience and the non-physical existence from where you came. There is much to be gained as you begin to combine experiences from both realms.

You, Dear One, have embarked on a journey of discovery that requires walking with a foot in both worlds simultaneously. This will become more apparent to you as you continue your forward movement. Can you lay aside your self-criticism and listen to that voice connected to the All, rather than that voice which parrots the illusions of the physical world?

Open your wings and fan away the winds of dis-content that harbor in your heart at this time. Make room for the joy which is a part of your true nature. Allow your true nature to emerge; delicate strength embodied in loving embrace by the All of Existence.

You, Dear One, are a magnificent piece of the whole.

Your glow accentuates the flame of existence across realms into infinity.

Release the joy that lives within you with every breath you take.

And light up this world with your own personal spark of love.

Dear One with All of Thee.
