“Once you’ve

accepted your

flaws no one

can use them

against you.”

Tyrion Lannister (in Game of Thrones television series)

Part Five of Five:

Exposing Our True Self

Here’s something I try to repeat to myself as much as I can:

“I carry Love.

I carry only Love.

For myself.

And for everyone else.

My choice.

Every time.”

Should I choose to utilize the Flaws and Mistakes in my life as catalysts (rather than burdens), to use them to launch into deeply honest reassessment, to direct them towards any internal change large or small…

These actions will always move me towards Healing and Wholeness, towards a fuller realization of Who I Truly Am…

…and sometimes along with our own change, we may even be privileged to see the same result to begin occurring in another.

Can these then truly be “Flaws” and “Mistakes”, as I formerly defined them, with their negative connotations?

The catastrophes and horrors we see around our world strike our very hearts…

Abuse

Murder

Death

Repression

Misunderstanding

Scathing words

Rejection

The list is oh so painfully long.

However, if we use these appearances of Flaws and Mistakes and Wrong Choices instead as launching pads to move forward and up instead, to rediscover the pure Love that we always were…

To Become More…

I ask:

What happens in our world then?

Since our forward and upward movement, our change, our forgiveness, is NOT saying we condone what so often repels us, then such motion proves instead that we are beings who are beyond the horror, beyond the darkness, beyond…the Past…and stronger than anything the Future may have in store.

We become more present…

Attentive…

Capable of incredible growth of spirit.

Our upward changes prove we are not under the control of whatever we see as “bad” in our lives. In moving onward and upward, we are instead the creators of something that cradles, nurtures and brings into being more interior power and majesty than we ever knew to be available to any one of us.

Just think:

How often do we see many loving selfless acts of generosity and compassion brought forth into action in the aftermath of so many horrific, traumatic and heartrending events?

Love always rises to the top.

If we choose to continue to move upward…

To regard with honesty all parts of ourselves…

To work with ALL that we have been given…

We WILL evolve into something larger and grander in spirit than we were in each previous moment…

We WILL uncover the Purity always present beneath the Flaws and Mistakes and Horrors…

We WILL rediscover the solid foundation Love offers us.

And then we WILL always see that “flaws” can be transformed…

Transmuted always to whatever degree we are willing to allow the same changes within ourselves.

So whenever you are graced with the appearance of a Flaw in your life?

Don’t run away just yet.

Stay still and Pause just a moment.

And bravely ask what possibilities it may hold hidden within.

Remember:

To Accept the Whole is to Love the Whole…

For Love holds all the Power.

Carry Love, for yourself, for others.

Only Love.

True Love cannot ever be used against you: that would refute its very definition.

Therefore, if something is not OF Love, you will know it is no longer necessary…

And you are then always free to leave it there on the path behind you.

(End Part 5/5)

And I thank you, my Persistent Readers, for walking with me on this Journey Through Flaws!
