Life- The great unfolding, and for most, the great undoing.
We are born innocent, we are born pure, we are born open to receive. Our parents shape and mold us from those first years. Our health, our religious beliefs, racism, family, structure, love, etc.
Our teachers influence us greatly, from our behaviors, to adding to failures in life or making successes.
The kids at school make their mark from bullying, inclusion or exclusion, mocking and name calling, etc.
And of course, the list goes on and on.
I feel like my entire life has been an undoing. An undoing of bad habits and belief systems. Negative patterning and breaking karmic cycles. My health and my dietary habits, my religious beliefs, my lack of self confidence, etc. And you know what? I wouldn’t want it any other way!
Discovering all the truths I know today has been the exciting part of my life. Understanding deeply the opposite to what I know now is what keeps me so deeply rooted and balanced. In other words, I know who I am, because I absolutely know who I am not. I have been there, I have tested it and tried it and I know the truth for myself.
I remember driving on the Pietersburg highway with Adrian when he was about 7 years old. I stopped along the road where there were rows and rows of trees. I pointed to a tree on a small hill and told him that this is God. He looked in amazement (and yes, puzzled 🤔). I told him that everyone drives past here to come and Honour God. He was in awe. I then told him that I was talking absolute nonsense. I told him that everyone, including myself, will bring him belief systems and structures and he has to make up his own mind as to what is true and what is not. I will always be there to guide him and give him my interpretations of it all, but it is ultimately up to him to decide what is true. It is ultimately his decision to feel deep inside what is right and wrong for himself.
My point is this. Don’t knock what you don’t know. Also, do you absolutely know what you believe to be true is actually true? Have you tested or searched for evidence for yourself or is it just handed down from Mom and Dad, teachers, priests, etc?
I hope you have an adventure while you explore the ocean of truths and untruths.
Have fun with the unfolding of life. Have fun exploring who and what you are in this unfolding. You never know what’s waiting for you unless you look.
In Love always,
