By Raphael Awen
I know you’re out looking for something.
You wouldn’t be here if you weren’t. The same is true for me.
I have an answer for you today. And that answer is that I am not your answer. Your answer is YOU. If I am anything to you, I can only serve as a reflection to you of you. If you are anything to me, you can only serve as a reflection of me to me.
The something you are out seeking today is you. The something I am out seeking today is me.
I happen to know that you are seeking the fulfillment of your being in all of its aspects. You want to learn, to grow, to find meaning, to have purpose and passion in your life, and to share all of it in meaningful connection with yourself, with others and with the divine.
Why be here and why ‘do’ here if not for these things?
All of life is arrayed to help you find these things. You already have them, but admittedly, they aren’t your experience as much as you’d like them to be. Hence, you dare to desire, you dare to be out seeking. You dare to look to an other even.
But I can do absolutely nothing for you unless you are out to help yourself. In fact, if you make me your source, while refusing to be your own source, the result can only be abuse of each other.
You are the light of the world. You, as you are now, with your desires for growth and change, with your pains and wounds that you don’t let anyone see.
Love wants in to your defended and seeking heart. Love wants to bring you new reflectors of your essence. Love wants to invite you out to risk again.
Take this light that you are shine it into the world of your desire, your aches and your longings. Let love meet you, embrace you, hold you, reassure you.
I know you’re out looking for something…
Seek and ye shall find.
Let nothing stop you. Be radical! Your life depends on it.
