"uncover your shadow....be human"

Greetings!

"The outer forms of our lives can change in an instant, but the inner re-orientation that brings us back into a vital relation with people and circumstances takes time... "

I would like to acknowledge the events that happen around the world, such as the threat of war among countries, religious terrorism, food crisis and the escalation of human hatred... There are no real words that can convey the sense of grief.

I sincerely hope that the good deeds and actions of the people that we see coming out to help, volunteer, and donate time, money and blood does not end... If there is anything to learn it is that we need people to have the courage to reach out to help others.

Many people may now be turning toward spirituality for deeper meaning and answers in this time. It can provide an emotional release. I believe that we must now be willing to look deep within ourselves to build an understanding of what it means to be human...

No matter who you are, somewhere inside all of us are qualities related to caring, honesty, compassion, pride, and dedication. What does it mean to you to be human?...

...is that your true self ?

I believe that it is important now, more than ever, to strive toward being true human beings, above all else. This means that we must acknowledge who we are... Of course many of us may feel the desire to lock ourselves away from the world and not allow anything or anyone else into our lives.

We all need to care, and be cared for... Keeping everything out will only block our true selves from experiencing life. What do we do for ourselves then? What can we do? Each of us have our own work to do. You may not be able to do all the work alone, as you may need assistance in unlocking many aspects of your inner self...

By looking at our dark side, or shadow, we can begin to uncover our true selves. With all that has gone on in our lives, you may not be ready to do this... If you are not ready, then I urge you to put off reading this until you are. If you are ready, then you should know that this process could be long and will require you to get your hands dirty.

Our personal shadow contains all the parts of ourselves that we have tried to - deny, lie about, forget or hide, hate... It also contains aspects that we believe are not acceptable to our friends or family.

For myself I have worked a long time on my tendency to be disorganized. Now I realize that I do not need to be perfect, but my interests can be assorted and I can decorate my life with a variety of strange styles...

 

 

...the deeply ingrained shadow

There is much to know about your shadow, but the main thing is that it is deeply ingrained within all of us... You cannot hide, or escape from its effects, but you can be aware of its influence on your life... You may also have grown as a person, and you can now see the path you took to get where you are...

Perhaps some of your inner qualities are responsible for the person you are today... You will want to find a way to live your life more awake, aware, and consciously...

Ask yourself if the qualities represented by your heart and soul are in your life.

Have you turned your back on certain aspects of your personality?.. Do you wish that you acted a certain way?  Are you happy with the way you are?  Are you angry at the way that you are? Do you feel that you should hold all the responsibility for yourself other than blaming others and the circumstances?

The answers to these questions can help you to better understand how the shadow has played out in your life...
