Let It Burn

 

“Step into the fire of self-discovery. This fire will not burn you, it will only burn what you are not.”
— Mooji

 

Taking myself through the flame of being
Burn away my fears that I cannot be successful
Burn away my self-doubt
and my judgement of others
burn away my feelings of self-righteousness
and that I know better than others
what is right for them.
Burn away my laziness and distractibility
and reveal the love
reveal the joy
Reveal the being
— G A Rosenberg

 

What would you like to burn away from what you show to reveal who you are?
Blessings, G

Wearing (And Chewing) the Dark Scenery – A Consciousness Stream

 

“I can see myself before myself—
A being through dark scenery.”
― Dejan Stojanovic

 

We shroud ourselves in self illusion…wearing veils of protective clothing and if most of us undress at all, we do it in the dark in our sleep where our masks fall off only to be replaced as soon as daylight hits…For to see ourselves true takes work. It starts with a commitment to honesty and a willingness to catch ourselves in our own lies…accepting imperfections and knowing they need work. Continue with discipline and meditation and a desire to confront our demons and accept them as part of us. Yes part of us appears ugly, some of that ugliness has come from those who love us and others in the world. Some we have built up for protection. It’s all part of that dark scenery that we wear. Once we can accept our shadow selves and commit to honesty we need to go deeper still. How far have I gotten? Still miles to go before I stand unclothed before myself but I’m working on it.
Blessings, G
