How many times have we looked to a person or belief or religion or substance or cause to save us from those invisible, incognito feelings of fear, self-loathing, and undefinable agitation?
The world is built on self-avoidance. We are plummeted with advertisements about instant relief from anxiety and lightning fast methods leading to boastful self-esteem. Only to be disappointed over and over that these seemingly split second, twinkling flashes of being saved have not worked, we think it is us, we are not smart enough, not brave enough, missing the message because we are cursed.
We are all desperate to be saved. Saved from the pain and disappointment of unfortunate events, unexpected delays, and self-recrimination, not feeling worthy or good enough.
Here’s the bad news: No one is coming to save you. Yes it is unfair but it’s a reality.
Here’s the good news: No one is coming to save you. This is ultimate freedom for you. You are free to create your own “saving”
At this very moment, as you consider your existence and choices with honesty, you are immediately “saved”.
Will your journey of saving yourself be easy, nope; it will be difficult at times, unbearable, unknown, and questionable, but as you process these steps and come out on the other side, your being saved will amount to the information you need to know yourself so well that no one, no person, no god, no curse, no cause and no belief can take from you.
You will stand saved in yourself, as yourself and with yourself, saved from mindlessly following what everyone else does to creating a one of a kind unique, individual life just for you.
The message is: You are so worth the effort of being “saved” by saving yourself.
Sending all of you buckets of gardenia, wisteria and lilies on your very own self-discovery journey.
