“What you are, and who you are should provide greater clarity about where you have been and where you are headed. Although one distinguishes spiritual from physical nature, the ultimate unification of the two is the consequence of the struggle for internal, external and eternal – peace.” ~t.f. hodgeClarity really messes up everything I already know to be true! Is it bad when you are shown the way and you just keep walking – like it never happened? Clarity looms close. I can feel it. It is lurking in the shadows waiting for me to know some more damn Truth.30 years ago I was living a life that came spontaneously like waves – ahhh youth! My conscious efforts were spent writing and performing comedy and assisting the universe in finding me a mate. Almost 23 years ago I married Mike. 2 1/2 years ago Mike died.
Since then I have been actively rebuilding my life. It is a strange and hard task which requires much energy. Clarity has asked me to allow every feeling that comes up to be felt then flushed through my delicate system. OK… so it is an intensely robust system I have… but it hurts bunches just the same.
Well – I did it. And I did it well! Circumstances have been unfolding just fine with joy, grace and ease. But lately, this last week, I am crying a lot. I know this is Clarity stalking me again!Yep – I am shedding what is left of my past life with Mike. I am getting the message I cannot go any farther without doing this. It seems these tears come from an extremely vast reservoir the size of which I will NEVER comprehend.
I thought I had let go already. I guess letting go in your thoughts and deeds is just not the same as letting go in the deepest part of your heart – that thing that is just now cracking wide open – again.So I find myself accepting – again – this weepy invitation to feel! And it hurts. But I know, from this, I will grow.Damn you, Clarity!
