Had to look up who JJBuck was after reading her quote. One amazing facet in this world we live in today, “Don’t know” ? Welp, no excuse, answer is available if you just focus and look, yet the key is not to forget what you see!
As I was reflecting on the question of “self”, my past pooled in my heart as tears welled up once again.
Must I pretend that I’m
Someone else for all time?
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside? Christina Aguilera – Reflection Lyrics
Joan Juliet Buck had her piece she wrote, about a Syrian dictator, removed from the press of Vogue magazine. She was horrified by what she saw during her time there. Her thoughts were banished, and just like Christina Aguilera’s song “Reflection” , she pretended she didn’t mean what she wrote, and a tear runs hot down my cheek, I taste its salt content. Yes, my tears are alive.
A friend wrote today, she said; “tears are liquid prayers”, yes Donna, the silent ones are.
We can never be bought, never be compromised, in this the spirit of man is free, in this state of being, miracles are a daily occurrence. If we believe…
Not in self, not in him, her or them. Nope, it isn’t outwards, all disqualifications exist in the realm of the natural yet we operate in a different realm; the SUPERnatural.
I AM successful in my Creator’s eyes and this is the only truth one needs to reflect on. I am not a mistake…
You don’t need to “stimulate another’s partner”, you don’t need to “binge” on anything, you don’t need to “purchase”, don’t need to “set a trap” or “prove your innocence” you don’t even need any “verification” for your witness is the beauty within, around and now “The Lord is my Shepperd thy shall not want”, is understood and one hears the voice of the Comforter;
There is no pretending, there is no need for “acceptance” just EXPECTATION, even when standing in the midst of oppression. DARE to LIVE becoming the voice of truth, a touch of healing, a vision to behold, when there is no “self” to manipulate actions now become healthy, for you and those around you. We have all made mistakes, but we are not a mistake and thankful as we shake the dust off and arise..If your first concern is to look after yourself, you’ll never find yourself. But if you forget about yourself and look to me, you’ll find both yourself and me
