How is it we all yearn for the Summer to arrive when we live in those areas where we experience different seasons. The way we look at this time of year is colored by the way the 4 seasons work. It also represents our holiday season in the western world. It will be experienced in a totally different way when you live in countries with a rainy season and flooding, or in desert countries, where the temperature is always high during the daytime. In order to experience the impact, the change of the season has on your own system, you must be aware of the place you are living. After the Spring where every plant, a tree is coming back to life with flowers and leaves, we move into summertime. With the harvest time as well for the farmers of their fields of grain. Or the harvest of grapes to become wine. Summer is something we experience because of the temperature rises.
This topic is linked with betrayal if you take a look at all those synonym explanations. It has been played out I think, as old as humanity is after the split when the duality became the norm in our world. Like cheating, breach of trust, the wounds that are inflicted are deeply felt and hurtful. It has many consequences for all parties concerned no doubt. So what is causing this kind of treachery, the deceit of the ones you love and have your trust. Is it lack of self-worth, self-love and self-respect that makes someone decide to start a web of lies. Root cause of all of the double-dealing is apparently fear of being loved, yet not able to love oneself deeply.
Pondering about the word puzzle as well how this resonates within it fell into place so to speak. Like we are walking on the spiral of Life, encountering all these stones along the way we step on. Or bump or toes on. To me, this always has been my way of visualizing it. Every time I stepped upon a stone, or blockade if you will, it was about a part of the puzzle for me to unravel. The challenges it brought up and the way I was able to bring back balance within myself again. This wasn’t about just a one time experience though. It is walking the spiral where all these experiences are showing up, every time bringing up a similar response.
This word frontier as theme of the Month was resonating, yet it wasn’t clear yet what it would bring up. It’s the final frontier was also the first phrase of a television series called Star Trek. I have been watching these movies and the theme song always was deeply felt. The words are calling out to my heart and soul as well the words that come with the final frontier. It's been a long road. To explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before. I think it was appealing to a lot of people not just at the time they were released. It still is compelling to many people all around the world. It shows how we like to explore beyond the borders and boundaries as a human race. Yet if we take a closer look, it appeals to the heart and soul as well.
Here is my little self-love poem for you. A special treat and reminder for you beautiful souls out there. Self-love. Accept that wrinkly belly you have Accept that rounded nose and that beauty mark on your back Accept your feelings for that person, for that pet Accept your mood swings Accept your “dark side” Accept the wholeness you are
“...You have to stay true to yourself and to yourself only. I know it can seem that you are being selfish or egoist. But actually, there’s nothing wrong with that. Putting yourself and your own love and well being first is an act of love towards yourself...” I wanted to start this new article with some words from my previous post. As I already told you, you should stay true to yourself, do what you feel you want to do and do it with love. But there’s a small risk you could encounter for loving yourself. And that is, that people may think you are a “bad person” because you’re loving yourself “too much”. But hey, here are 2 things:
Sometimes, if not often, it happens that when we do something for other people we don’t see any recognition, we don’t even hear a simple “thank you”, “great job”, “nice work”. I know we don’t expect anything in particular, just a small appreciation for what we have done. And because other people don’t appreciate us, or the things we do, we feel angry, mad, sad, sometimes depressed, and we risk to feel worthless. Like we don’t have value.
There may be two people who have been dealt the same cards in life. Two individuals with all the same life circumstances. One is miserable, stressed out, and looks twenty years older than he is. The other is the happiest guy you could ever meet and looks twenty years younger than he is. How can this be? The answer is that it is not our life circumstances that make life difficult rather it is the attitude that we view our lives with. Those who are capable of seeing the humour in life and take life lightly will be able to do the best with the circumstances they have been given.
