Storytelling’s ability to reveal what is, what truly is:
It’s pretty human to want to identify with the good and avoid seeing the bad. We have to see the bad. Women or men, it is only through recognizing our bad, our ugly, our foolishness, our mistakes that we learn to grow. The more we become aware of our foolishness, of our fear filled stories and silly habits, the greater will be the awakening of a new, more compassionate story; the more we realize how we have been growing in or own foolishness.
Your actions, your words, desires and fears are not bad or negative in and off themselves. I’m not wanting you to think your story is negative. But, when we become obsessed with our stories about who and what we think we are or should be, we become blind to a possible new reality right before us. When we no longer are blinded by our need to force things into a mold that has been preconceived by our mind (mainly to keep us safe) we can really unfold and find a sense of freedom.
Everything we carry, we tangle up inside of us, makes us like caterpillars, struggling to get along; we have to untangle and melt everything in order to become butterflies. We don’t eliminate, we inseminate and transform what is given to us.
