This month, we embark on an exploration of the concept of sacred relationships. As we know, the first relationship we must honor is the one with ourselves. To me, sacredness implies wholeness and integrity: to thy own Truth be true. From this, all else flows as either a recognizable blessing, or a blessing in disguise!
What will it take for us to quietly open and allow the fullness of who we are, ‘The Good the Bad and the Ugly,’ all self-perceived, out? The Journey of coming out of the closet isn't reserved for the few. As many years pass, we start to believe who we think we are, when truthfully, it is US who has kept our blessing in disguise.
So, the Journey of conscious evolution is a process of personal integration, and that doesn't happen without a complete breakdown of all the false beliefs we hold, about who we believe we are and who we are not. Self-honesty and embracement precede transparency and transparency lays the foundation for Authentic Living in a sacred way.
"Enlightenment is a destructive process. It has nothing to do with becoming better or being happier. Enlightenment is the crumbling away of untruth. It’s seeing through the facade of pretense. It’s the complete eradication of everything we imagined to be true.” - Adyashanti
We must come face-to-face with our shadows; it is then that our false beliefs will be shattered.
This is the only way to heal, to become whole again, creating all relationships in the powerful presence of the sacred. Having a sacred relationship with oneself is the intentional journey to honor and reveal one's truth and to hold space for others to do the same
