One time, a few years back, I tried to cut a chain that was locked on my parent’s gate. The key to the lock couldn’t be found. The links were thick, and the chain cutter I tried to use, was difficult and awkward to maneuver. I thought maybe I wasn’t putting my back into it enough.
So, was it the human element in breaking the chain gone amiss, or was it the wrong tool? Maybe I should’ve tried helping my parent’s find the key with more effort, or maybe the gates shouldn’t have been locked that day?
Chains for me have always felt like an element of entrapment. I wanted to remind myself, and hopefully you, as the reader, that chains come in many different forms: Fear, scarcity, disillusioned obligations, lies, manipulation, and – fill in the blanks.
As the year 2020 wraps up, I see now how I have inadvertently broken many chains. I call this blessings in disguise. I plan to use these opportunities for growth, personal evolution, personal revolution, and creative new beginnings. What about you?
As 2020 wraps up, and the slush of the maddening phases we’re overcoming, including government, Covid-19 pandemic, and our very own issues of survival come to a head, the door is about to open. I welcome it. All of it. Because that door will contain challenges, un-foreseen consequences of what we have done, or not done collectively.
Personally? Well, my door has been closed. Healing has been on the menu. Healing on physical levels, emotional, and mental. As I get ready to open the door, I invite those whom have done the same, to enter: like-minded, supportive, non-judgmental, and spiritually attuned, welcome!
Still working on it? I take my hat off to you, and hope you will continue. Don’t give up. Keep up the good work, and know you’re on the right track. Peace within, starts with you. Peace without, starts with those you know who are willing to grow with you.
Sending out blessings to all, and I’ll catch you next time…
