One thing I’m definitely learning, is, that when we offer our authentic self to someone, we are giving them Truly the greatest gift of all. The kind of gift, that stays in our consciousness and in our bones and marrow, far beyond the timeline, of our givers exit.
I’m not just talking about a sharing of self, that’s solely related to me expressing my strength. But, also a sharing based on the when’s and why’s I’ve been scared, or cocky, inauthentic, or even debilitated, and/or delusional. This depth of giving is most important, because it comforts the receiver by its commonality factor. They think…you did that? You’ve been that way? You sometimes feel like that? Then I’m not alone. Yes, they are then freed up. What a gift.
But, now, about our strength; the inexhaustible, impenetrable fuel for life, yes, this too needs to be expounded upon. How I found it, how it pulled me up, how it woke me up, and most importantly, what I learned from it. This, I believe, is the real glue of a Legacy; wisdom, wafting through the ethers of the universe. The quiet example prodding us, to, look deeper, get stiller and be real, about the brilliant multi-facetedness of us, as humans being. This IS our life and this is what real living is about.
Posturing serves no one in the long run.
I believe the brightest Legacy is our truth. The truth of our journey, and the truth, that, we are not held down by our mis-takes, our foibles, or our fumbles, because we always have access to our wonderful, magical strength, if we choose to bring it to the forefront of our living. Unleash your legacy!
