Honesty and Vulnerability the Key to Intimacy

One of the main factors of having and keeping a good relationship is being able to trust, and have good communication. In order for others to trust us, we have to be able to become vulnerable, and show our vulnerability. Honesty and vulnerability go hand in hand. You cannot be totally, and genuinely truthful with another, without opening up fully to them.[...]

Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places

We are conceived through a connection, of the deepest kind, between a man and a woman, and from the moment that we are conceived, we are connected to our Mother in her womb. When that physical connection we began with is separated at birth, we spend our lives desiring to be connected again. How we go about, and how well we succeed, at re-creating that connection…becomes the story of our lives.[...]

"Puppet On A String" Who Is Controlling Your Strings?

I was raised in a family of givers, and caretakers, and the old fashion way, where the women wait on the men, and take care of the home, but in the world of relationships, that tenancy and upbringing, if taken too far, can get me into a whole lot of trouble with men, and ultimately be the downfall of any relationship. There is a fine line between caring for someone and allowing yourself to be a “puppet on a string”. When you spend all of your time trying to please another person, at your own expense; they will see you as weak, possessive and clingy.[...]

Have You Seen My Rose Colored Glasses?"

I was reading an article by Zara Stevens, and it hit on something that has been on my mind a lot these past few years. "You no longer make me happy anymore." I heard this statement a lot at the end of my last relationship; that had started out with the most profound happiness that I could ever imagine. Both of us were filled with dreams that we were working to create together, along with supporting each other's individual dreams. But then there came that "crack", as Zara put it. I think that so many times part of the problem lies in the fact; that we meet someone, and they begin to bring so very much happiness into our lives, that each of you creates this perfect picture in your mind, about what a wonderful,[...]

Karma...The Lessons of the Soul

My soul apparently has some really hard lessons to learn in this life, and I suppose this is one of those moments when, it is getting to me, and I am having a hard time putting on that “happy mask”.

I don’t understand why every lesson I have to learn; and it seems that the older I get, the harder and more dramatic the lessons are, that are thrown at me.

It seems the last couple of years that karma has chosen to dish me up, a platter of no good rotten experiences. I have become the drama magnet. Not by choice, but once again, I keep finding myself in all the wrong places, at all the wrong times. A little too late, and it appears, way too soon, but always naively, right in the middle of the heart of the matter.

I so hate singing the blues. I so hate the feeling of despair and desperation.

I have found myself at yet another crossroads in life. The biggest one I have faced so far…I think. Restrictions are not much fun, but it appears that they are sometimes necessary, and helpful in teaching us, to value and appreciate something…always a day late.

It seems that I have found myself stripped of most everything that means anything to me. I have been stripped before…but not quite as naked as I find myself this time, and I am so much older now. Just how many times do I need to start over…before I get it right?

It seems that every time I don’t learn each lesson, just right, the way the Universe has decided that I am supposed to learn it. The lesson comes harder, stronger, and more painful, for me to conquer the next time.

I sit here reflecting on all that has passed, all that has been lost, and all that I yearn to regain or receive, and all that I wish to let go.

I find myself pondering Karma and it’s implications.

How is it that I find myself here in this place at this moment?

Why is it that karma has dealt me this fate, this destination?

I have always tried to live by love and not hate…to act with patience towards others, but not always so well towards myself. I have always tried to do the best that I could at every turn along the way, and keep a smile on my face through all of the trials. To have my moments of self pity, and grovel in my shortcomings, for a day or two, and then start planning and pursuing my escape, like Batman and Robin, or McGiver, wiggling my way back into victory, against all odds.

But the villains keep getting stronger and more cunning, as the years go by. Somehow, I always thought it was supposed to be the other way around. Somewhere, somehow, I seem to have missed something along the way…some major, life altering, sign. As hard as I look, apparently, I have always missed placed my glasses, at just that crucial moment, when it would have made all the difference.

On more than one occasion, I’ve tried to pick myself up, and faced the world with head held high even in those times, and especially in those times, when others have publicly put me down, and told lies about me, in an attempt to cover up, both to themselves, and to their peers, the wrongs that they have done. I have then sat back, with closed lip, and watched while their own hate and deceit, brought them to a face of justice. Then I have chosen to walk away and forgive those things they have done, to intentionally bring pain to me and others.

I’m not claiming that I haven’t made mistakes. I have made many. I have always tried to correct the ones that I made, and learn from them. I’m not always sure that I have found the correct lesson out of them all, but I have always reached and searched for it, and then I have worked to forgive myself and others for the choices that have been made, and take those lessons I have learned, and do it better the next time around…if given that chance.

Where is the rainbow I seek, to signify that the storm has ended, and the sun is beginning to appear through the dark clouds, and the bolts of lightning, and the cracks of thunder have subsided?

They say we keep making the same mistake over and over until the lesson is learned.

What is it that I have failed to learn so badly, that fate or karma has chosen to take away the love of my life, the profession that has sustained me my whole life, and a place that I can call home? Why is it that I find myself here, stripped naked…forced to look upon myself in this way?

What is the Universe trying to show me and teach me?

Where is it, that destiny is trying to lead me to?
