I always prefer to stay in alignment and remain peaceful. Peacefulness is my most favourite state to rest in. But sometimes, I am called to step up. While I prefer to move mountains with the gentlest of touch, I am required at times to draw my sword… and when I am called to do so, I can fight with the best of them.
I am not afraid to upset people in order to fulfill the mission and get it done. And no, it is not always pretty, but it is real and it is true. I can be blunt, hurl obscenities and quickly get into rage when I am defending my truth, defending what’s mine and defending the ones I love.
I used to dislike this part of me. It wasn’t ‘Zen’. It wasn’t ‘Graceful.’ And indeed it wasn’t ‘Pretty.’ But over the years, I have grown to love my shadows. All of them. They have, after all, protected me all these years and have helped me to fight for what I have today.
Awareness, Love, Gratitude, Acceptance and Integration of all our personalities is key.
The only difference now is, that, for the most part, I call on my shadows at will. For the most part, I control them, they do not control me. When shit gets tough, I can fight with the best of them… …but only if I choose to.
