We arrived with everything we needed to be whole. Does that blow your mind? It does mine. Does it stagger you how easily we've forgotten that? Here's what I think: whoever and whatever came together to bring us into this world packed our little cosmic suitcases thoroughly and with great care. Is it their (her, his) fault that we shoved those cases under the bed, forgetting to unpack, forgetting, even, that they existed in the first place?
Well, the good news is that they're still there. The better news is that they've survived this journey intact. They aren't locked--they never were. We have had access to our own divinity, our own strength, our own resources all along. We can cut back on all this endless striving--we have already arrived.
We just need to unpack.
