"This selling yourself to your own mind does not befit you, my soul. You are infinite, deathless, birthless. Because you are infinite spirit, it does not befit you to be a slave. ... Arise! Awake! Stand up and fight! Die if you must. There is none to help you. You are all the world. Who can help you?"
Don't go quietly to the couch, ignoring what is necessary to ignite the spark of your soul.
Life demands you live it. Awake and aware.
When Harriet Tubman said 'I freed a thousand slaves and I could have freed a thousand more if only they knew they were slaves.' She fully understood and expressed the self imprisonment that surrounds our days and the fear of stepping outside of the enslaver of our thinking into freedom. Yes, metaphorical death may be necessary because stepping into the unknown onward to freedom requires the journey into the unknown.
This is as true then as it is now. Self compassion and self love requires that you do as Harriet Tubman offers up...
"If you hear the dogs, keep going. If you see the torches in the woods, keep going. If there's shouting after you, keep going. Don't ever stop. Keep going! If you want a taste of freedom, keep going!" -Harriet Tubman
Perfect advice as we head into these new days ahead that will demand all of us to demonstrate with our lives - perfect strength and peace and love.
Allow the truth to set in. Allow the truth to set you free. Even if it isn't immediately. Allow the truth to bring you a vision that matches what lives and breathes in your heart beneath and beyond the prison of your past understanding.
Have the courage of your heart's inspiration. Connect to the intuition of love in its fullest designs. Step into the unknown and celebrate each movement as one of grace and passion and purpose. Enjoy the aches of growth. Allow their presence to be a gateway to more and more justice.
Be someone today who makes love shine through every action. Be someone who celebrates others, who forgives quickly, who remembers judgement is a reflection, and someone who extends kindness with each breath. Be someone who extends peace and remembers the world at large is an expression of the world within. You are the one who you have been waiting for and now is the time to stand up.
