‘Could it be that a part of you has a very good reason for feeling depressed?’
‘Why does conflict seem to pop out of nowhere?’
‘Why do I see repeating patterns of abuse or neglect in my relationships?’
Deep QUESTions like these are powerful, and taken to heart, they can lead you on a powerful quest, to the heart of your power and self leadership, and self response-ability.
They will lead you to your truth to the degree you are ready to make the quest, your quest.
Remaining comfortably subscribed to someone else’s truth, in an effort to fit in, or in an effort to avoid rejection, when you can see and feel the growing disintegrity of those ‘truths’ can only now provide you with a discomfort in the diminishing sense of belonging.
Choosing to really discover your truth will take you to the edges of everything you belong to, and invite you into seeing what you belong to and why, in a new way.
The first question above took me on a spiritual and emotional journey that I was ripe for in my life, where I simply knew that I couldn’t live with myself, if I didn’t allow the QUESTion to fully take me on its quest.
For me, the only picture that could satisfy my degree of what some might call a ‘maniacal’ quest, was the picture of what is known as ‘Parts Work.’ In fact, I couldn’t even embrace the quest very far without seeing and getting to intimately know the various parts of myself and their investments in my current life structures and relationships. For me, any and every spiritual path and emotional path that couldn’t, or wouldn’t recognize and make central, parts of ourselves, felt to me like they were a band-aid of denial over the screaming reality in the room. The quest took me through a path of one self-lovingly negotiated step at a time of changing my relationship to everything in my life, and it still does to this very day.
Discovering your truth will call you to the edges of everything you’ve believed in and why. I sure wouldn’t wish or advise such an experience on you if you couldn’t open up to feeling the parts of you and their investments in your life as you currently know it.
Your truth will sort you, and everything in your life like nothing else can.
It sounds serious, and it is, but it’s also your funnest fun!, …that you came here to discover and become.
