as we shift – come as you are
by Sophia Love, published on December 15, 2017
There’s this song I have listened to again and again and again. It speaks to me and yet,
well, I won’t let it touch me. Do you know what I mean?
We started out as one, and on this day at this moment, we are playing out everywhere the
truth of our singularity. There is not one of us that will remain hidden in this blackness.
We are, in fact, coming out of the dark. We are doing it in headlines, boardrooms,
bedrooms, kitchens and cell phones. No longer will your light be hidden.
Five years ago, we expected a glorious emergence. We’re not quite there yet.
First comes the shedding. This can get ugly.
Do not cower or look away. These parts are you also. Those parts you refuse to love are
the ones who most need acceptance. Until and unless you clearly see who you are,
you remain unable to forgive.
It’s all okay you know. There is no almighty god with a tally sheet determining your worth.
You are worthy right now.
This part is really important. The part where you question everything you’ve done,
everyone you ever been and all that you believed was true about you. Don’t skip it.
I promise you, the answer is better than you think.
Everything you’ve done is in the past. You can’t see it and it is only as real as your
memory keeps it alive.
Everyone you’ve ever been only exists as long as you insist they do, with
repetition of their behavior.
All that you’ve believed was true about you? That depends. The good parts are true.
Anything less than glorious is ego. You are not your ego.
You are a powerful, radiant piece of forever, housed in this beautiful bit of flesh called
a human. A human being. Being what? Well that is the question now, isn’t it?
Because you see, the veil is gone, the curtain is up, the masks are off and we are naked
in front of the world. Right now.
It is time to love without opinion. Don’t kid yourself, this is not about loving every
public figure being thrown under the bus with illegal, amoral and predatory allegations.
This is much, much harder.
You will have to absolutely love every inch of you, inside and out. You will have to
forgive all that you’ve done and all that you’ve thought of doing. You will have to accept
that you are capable of exquisite emotion and brilliant action as well as some not so
noble stuff. You will have to embody compassion and breathe forgiveness.
You will have to inhale humble and exhale gratitude.
You will have to love without condition or exception.
For at the end of the day or the conclusion of a life, what matters most is the love
you give. And when you give love internally, you’ll find that you were never alone.
We have all been here, waiting. Seven and a half billion lights, perfectly reflected,
ready now to blaze forth.
We are so happy you have finally seen the truth. All that was needed, was you.
And you are the one we’ve been waiting for
Thank you for your forgiveness and for your generosity. Thank you for your love
and for your light. All that you are, we are too.
