Our collective malaise is simply this: We are out of touch.
Because we have numbed ourselves to our own inner wounds – in a valiant attempt to keep functioning, to ‘survive’ – we have simultaneously numbed ourselves to the world around us.
We step inside our own skin, again.
We become our own ally.
And – as a unified being – we are capable of responding to any situation which life presents to us.
In living our experiences – integrating and completing those which we have carried within us for many, many years – we are no longer afraid to feel the feelings which naturally arise in us in response to what is around us.
We can feel. Our hearts are open.
We enter a state of compassion.
We are running on a ‘full tank’, so to speak.
We have the inner resources accessible to us to respond to our world.
We can participate in its healing.
We can participate in its re-creation – its design and its arisal anew.
Without this sensitivity, we remain a part of the problem, no matter how good our intentions. Because we are still acting out the mis-perceptions of the wound.
