Voices of You
Today I found myself holding myself in a kind of judgment, the kind that I would encourage any of you to let go of, to not hold for yourself. I found myself thinking “This is not the body that I would want to be in, this soft, thickening body. This isn't my body.” And thinking “these wrinkles around my mouth, where did they come from? I don't want them.”
Hm. And then, having sat with that, knowing that no benefit really comes of that, and really, this judging is the opposite of healing .... I Imagined Each of your voices Echoing back to me the kind of words that I would have said to you had I heard you make these judgments about yourself. That .... “You are Lovely in the body that you inhabit. It is lovely. It is your vessel of being. And your beauty shines through it” ....
I heard each of your voices saying, “Thank you For being who you are, For holding space in this world In the way that only you can.” It was like the Divine One was speaking to me through your voices.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
