Fear #2 Shame

Source of Inspiration

Shame-300x300
A sneer, disdainful look,
condescending comment,
laughter, humiliation. The
fear of shame cuts deeply.
Not good enough, different,
too much, too little — who
has not had to face this fear,
real or otherwise?

I still remember cruel playground
taunts sixty years later, parties
where no one asked me to dance,
so many times when I felt I was
“not good enough.” It is only
in my later years that I learned
how to douse the fire of shame…
yet it can still singe me at times.

Magic or Not?

What is magic…gift or curse?
Evil action defying explanation,
or a Divine gift? Magic is all around
us, yet we ignore or deny its
existence. The word itself has
become tarnished, but there was
a time when wise ones accepted its
role in our lives.

Magic still exists today; how, or if,
we use it is up to us. I expect that
what we call “magic” will one
day soon be common tools of all.
We are spiritual beings with much
more power than we realize. As we
continue to awaken, more will be revealed.

Life Without Love

life_nothing_without_love

If there is no love in your life,
the most delicate sweet tastes bland,
babbling brooks have no sparkle,
symphonies go mute.

“But how do I get love–I’ve looked
everywhere?” Ah, dear ones, first
you must find love within for
you can get love that’s true only
by giving love. This love you give
must not be given as a trap but
freely without expectation, thus
fulfilling the law of the universe
that what we give out comes back to us.
