Be your own source of strength. Be wholly and powerfully you, so you don’t need to rely or depend on anyone — especially your partner, spouse, or would-be lover.
Have you been trying to adopt a culturally accepted conformation of personal independence? Trying desperately to toughen up and foster resilience, grit, and stature?
Are you being authentic and honest with yourself about your fundamental needs?
Emotional needs are real. That doesn’t make you needy.
You are not a soulless machine. You are organic. You are a distinctive blend of numerous aspects and imprints from across the universe. You are a sovereign spirit. You are an intensely focused individuation of eternal life and loved without question.
But right here, right now, you are an explorer. While it’s true that nothing can truly harm the greater you, there are plenty of volatile energies, malevolent entities, and nefarious agendas that feed off your occasional forgetting.
Thus, the erroneous idea that you must further isolate yourself to forge your personal power, identity, and emotional wherewithal may do you more harm than good.
Vulnerability is not a weakness.
Our modern society’s hero worship (and worship in general) is an insidious poison and a throwback to runaway masculine energies. We’re stumbling back to balance. So the greatest challenge today lies in dropping all false fronts and letting go of the massive weight of feigning safety and security through the force of will.
Your deep truth, your essence — your creator substance — doesn’t care much for pretense. It’s so watered down that all it inevitably does is smudge and blur your genuine tones and hues.
You are not alone. Not ever. Heart open.
