“True power does not lie in the hands of another. It rises from within you ~from your own awesome Spirit.” … Susanne
What happened to the bright sparks who arrived here … open … excited … and ready to change the world? How did it come to pass that their innocence was corrupted … buried … or destroyed? And why would anyone voluntarily choose to do such a thing? It makes me wonder: Is there a way to end the continuation of pain that generations of wounded souls have not only endured but passed on … one to the next?
My response to that last question is: “Yes I believe that there is” … and the solution can be summed up in one old adage: “The buck stops here!” Looking back I realize that I was always the strong one in my family … even when I didn’t know it. I was the pillar of strength for my lovely; but terribly wounded mom and the post of stability for my lost and lonely dad. And … even as a young child … I knew beyond the shadow of a doubt that “The Responsibility-Buck” stopped right at my feet.
Many years … buckets full of experiences … loads of Healing of my own inner wounds … and oodles of water-under-my-bridge … later I am coming full circle … back to my roots. My inner … and previously latent power is rising again. As I allow myself to become what I came here to be I am noticing … with great awe and joy … the large number of young people who are standing up to be counted … and who are refusing to allow anyone to take their power or their gifts away from them. I am motivated and inspired! Whether they are singers, speakers, changers-of-the-old or inventors–of-the-new they remind me that I too am here for a reason … that I too have the ability to share the gifts that Life gave me … and that … if I but gather my courage and the love in my Heart … I too have the power to make a difference in somebody’s life.
Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone
