Somewhere, there are people
to whom we can speak with passion
without having the words catch in our throats.
Somewhere a circle of hands will open to receive us,
eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us
whenever we come into our own power.
Community means strength that joins us
Our strength to do the work that needs to be done.
Arms to hold us when we falter.
A circle of healing.
A circle of friends.
Someplace where we can be free.
If you were to curiously gaze at the company you keep, are you a member of a community that strengthens and supports you? Life ebbs and flows and we move in and out of communities. As our lives shift, it becomes essential to actively participate in the creation of our circles.
Do you feel others reaching out to receive you- the authentic you? Without filters and sensors, does your community see the transparency of your life? Maybe you are at a crossroads in a relationship and you are struggling with the next step. As you feel your way around, maybe you notice that your heart is truly longing for freedom- the freedom to genuinely be YOU. Can you feel the strength of your community- arms outstretched for the tender moments when you experience loss and arms of celebration when joy returns. Are you congruent in your self expression- Do you extend the same kindness towards self that you would towards a member of your community?
The brilliant part of life is that we ask ourselves these varied questions and then sit with the truth of the answers. The truth might very well reveal itself in our physical bodies, in our dreams, in our waking moments of conscious awareness. We store such somatic brilliance in our DNA.
On this day, may you be surrounded by a community of support. May this community nourish you with words of kindness. May they hold intentions for your highest and best good. May you realize that community begins with self.
May You Sweetly Seek:)
