The beauty of nature surrounding us these days has reminded me that peace is much closer than we think. Walking away from dinner last night,
Today we ban abortion, the right of a woman to do what she wants with her body and her life, tomorrow we remember gay people are the devil and the day after that God is actually, truly just a a white middle aged guy and every other color must take three steps back. And there you have it, back in the ages so many fought to see gone.
I am very privileged to have found the right doctors, the right meds, the right partner to support me in this sometimes daily struggle. My smiles, successes, peace are hard won and I have the luxury to ignore the world when it puts labels on things it has no idea about.
The ammunition that fed the war between my mind (aka ego) and my heart (aka soul) were the voices that live constantly in my bones.
My inner voices continue to be my Achilles’ heel and set me back when I least expect it.
The dip, just like a circle in the water, starts getting larger and larger until it engulfs my entire being. And, snap! Just like that, I am in a different dimension: on the outside of my life looking in.
