I believe each of us throughout our life time has experienced the emotion of rejection or maybe even deeper than that, abandonment. These emotions, if you let them in, can break the heart wide open for you to discover what can’t be rejected or abandoned.
Perhaps it was a job or a relationship that left you with feelings of rejection or abandonment. Whatever the story, and I respectfully do not make light of these experiences as they can be very painful, and once experienced, the feelings can continue to resurface in our lives until they are healed. Each time these feelings arise in our life, if we continue to look for another to resolve or take away the pain and suffering that can come with these types of emotions we will never be free. When we realize that who we really are is not dependent on someone else filing the gap to make us feel whole and complete then the healing begins. Perhaps it has been our very own self who has rejected or abandoned our selves by looking to others to give the love we are so desperately seeking.
There’s also a simplicity that arises when we are conscious of rejection or abandonment being present in our lives. When we remain open and allow the emotion to be present without even labeling the feeling it begins to transform. Remember next time when you feel one of these emotions, remind your SELF that who you are is already free, no other is required to discover this, as a matter of fact, you are the only one who can discover the truth that is resting in the core of this very experience.
“I am the Self, seated in the heart of every creature.
I am the origin, the middle, and the end that all must come to.
Those who worship me sincerely
With their minds and bodies, giving up their whole lives in devotion,
Find in me their heart’s fulfillment.
All your thoughts, all your actions,
All your fears and disappointments, offer them to me, clear hearted:
Know them all as passing visions.
I am always with all beings; I abandon no one.
And however great your inner darkness,
You are never separate from me.
Let your thoughts flow past you, calmly;
Keep me near, at every moment;
Trust me with your life, because I AM you, more than you, yourself are.”
From the Bhagavad Gita
Honor your spirit and walk towards the journey your heart desires.
