I am having a real tough realization today. It is rather embarrassing and I feel really raw but the TRUTH does that to us – doesn’t it?!
And having been consistently infatuated with the idea of us becoming spiritual partners, I have found a way to stave off the reality that I am truly on my own with no one to care about me like my husband used to. (Our song “What a Wonderful World” is playing on the radio right now so I figure my hubby is with me right now as these lessons wash over me!) With my fantasy busted I feel the loss of a very REAL protective device. OUCH – OUCH! What’s a little more pain? I have been in pain since Michael died… more or less.
Plus this news has walloped me right in the TRUTH department! It reveals the difference between “what I say” and “what is really going on” inside the deepest part of myself. Another TRUTH is my crush has always been a “passive” teacher for me. For this I am grateful. I really do love him for that!

I have become so aware of my emotions, that I actually felt the difference between a “HURT EGO” and a “SOUL PAIN” Losing my husband is a SOUL PAIN that will always be with me.

I am so grateful for this knowing and it’s valuable lessons. This episode has shown me I am more internally aware than I have ever been before.
~ I am capable of Big Love
Lastly, I am so happy that a man I love is being loved and feeling loved. It has been another goal of mine to love with detachment. This is a great place to leave this event. I sense both of us have been wanting real connections, but have been trying to play it safe and protect ourselves at the same time. So if he can open his heart to let love into his life than this bodes well for all of us!
Thanks for listening ~
