Here is a statement that may make some uncomfortable. I AM a Divine Spark of the Creator. I AM powerful and magnificent beyond measure. Therefore, I AM not striving for perfection, I seek remembrance of myself at a soul level. The fact of the matter is we ALL ARE. I have noticed that when you begin to recognize who you really are, those around you may begin to feel a sense of unease. Why you ask? Because when you begin to embrace your power, remove the need to please others, you become a force to be reckoned with. That unease that others begin to experience is not really related to you, so try not to take it personally. You have become a mirror of sorts and for those not ready to recognize and embrace their own magnificence, a fear is then projected (directed) at the source which is making them feel uncomfortable. We cannot recognize in someone else that which we have not yet recognized in ourself. I am not judging, merely making an observation. We are all on our own journeys, so where we are in our journey is right where we need to be. There is no right or wrong, only stages to the process of growth.
Love is who we are and I have realized that I can only BE who I AM, not who someone else wishes me to BE. If I do, then I become their perception of me and not who I truly am. Getting to this point in my process has not been easy, not by a long shot. But the peace I experience when I live in the truth of who I AM has made any pain and difficulty worth it.
I continue to be a work in progress. But I AM truly grateful for where I AM in this moment.
