If you give it some thought, it’s easy to see how our lives are filled with stories. We share stories about our experiences, our beliefs, and our dreams with each other daily. I’m loving Mother’s perspective on this universal truth. What is my story? Is it a supportive story? Do I cast love as the hero and fear as the villain? And if so does that really work for me? Or could I learn to cast both love and fear as the hero, light and shadow in supporting roles? I’m taking a long look at the question, how attached to my own narrative am I? Do I allow my story to be edited and refined or do I cling to certain parts of it with a death grip?
When I’m willing to take a look at these questions and allow my curiosity to explore some possible answers I discover that it’s Mother who gives me the power to unclench from that death grip like hold I have on my story or someone else’s story and at least look at the possibility of adding to or letting go of the parts that don’t express who I am now as accurately as I’d like. It’s Her grace that helps me to step back and listen to my own story for ways to refine, or add some small element that will make for a stronger more inclusive, less damaging narrative. My story helps me make sense of my life. It puts things in context for my mind to follow. I’m grateful that Mother is moving me into a story that includes my whole self and not just my mind. I find it makes for a much better life, one with less tragedy and a lot more love.
Thank you so much for all your loving words for Part 1 of Mother’s video series. I hope Part 2 brings you as much joy. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Are you starting to hear your own story and that of others?
