I am NOT Broken...I Don't Need to be Fixed.
I am not broken. I don't need to be fixed.
We live in a time where brokenness is seen as bad...where we are constantly seeking to fix our imperfections. Unfortunately this creates a paradigm that we are not acceptable or lovable until we are healed.... but how are we to know if we have ever actually arrived?
There is no "arrival".....only this moment.
When I look into the natural world, I do not see a fractal representation of beauty in plastic perfection.... I see beauty represented in all of the strange, unique, gnarled, colorful, vibrant ways that God expresses God self daily.
Healing is a journey of integration. It is not about fixing the broken parts, but rather loving the brokenness alongside the seeming perfection in ourselves, thereby allowing our unified wholeness
to spring forth.
This is an integrated Yin/Yang way of life. A willngness to walk into Yin embraces the feminine unknown without demonizing the darkness within ourselves. Just as the natural world journeys through the Autumn into the austerity of Winter, so do we cycle through periods of reflection and letting go.
Below is the Autumn Goddess, a powerful Feminine Angel who emerged for me after a very physically painful day yesterday. She walks from the fires of Yang into the Earth, Metal and ultimately Water of Yin to gently illuminate the path of descent and remind her human companions that we are not broken, we do not need to be fixed in order to be loved...we are already LOVED because we are already one with the SOURCE of all that IS, which is what we call LOVE.
