NO MAN-MADE ANYTHING…
WHEN ONE IS NEVERBORN/NEVERDIE REALIZED
BEYOND WORDING AND BELIEF
It is important to realize that the path of opening the heart
is not the same as becoming a receptacle for the unloading
of others' unconscious. unresolved beliefs, unprocessed
feelings, and unintegrated behaviors.
being an emotional doormat involves
the re-enacting of early unconscious dynamics.
often in very subtle ways,
was the best route to get out needs met,
to fit in, to receive attention and affection,
and to maintain a precarious tie
to an unavailable attachment figure [parent]...
...to work through overwhelming states of
- neither solid nor fixed -
and can be reorganized around empathy,
kindness, and presence...
...this possibility occurs
only by way of self-compassion and the unconditional
commitment to no longer abandon yourself...
which will require immense courage, care,
curiosity and embodiment.
place others' needs over your own...not out of
true compassion for them, but a re-enactment of
an early environment of shame and unworthiness...
...lay down a new pathway [through self-compassion].
a pi symbol to the left..a side-ways V next ..and a human and/or fish figure standing upright..
.there are many more you might notice...also the number 10.
which wisely expresses itself in the skillful care of others,
and opens the doorway into
the unfolding dance of self and other
and the eternal mysteries...
