Wisdom and inspiration to open the heart, strengthen awareness and unfold our leading edge.
The words from the Velveteen Rabbit struck my heart this evening as I ...
read them aloud to Myles... “Real isn’t how you are made,” said the skin horse. “It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become Real.”
“Does it hurt?” asked the Rabbit.
“Sometimes,” said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. “when you are Real, you don’t mind being hurt.”
“Does it happen all at once, like being wound up,” he asked, “or bit by bit?”
“It doesn’t happen all at once,” said the Skin Horse. “YOU BECOME. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t often happen to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out, and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
In life my loves, WE become Real. Some may never experience it; some may never have lost it. But we all strive every day to be Real; to mirror the truest most authentic vision of ourselves. Absolutely does it hurt sometimes, heck yes it does. Sometimes it feels like the wind has literally been taken from your lungs, making you question if you will recover and ever breath the same way. And I’m here to tell you, you don’t…you never go back to where you were before. It’s simply impossible. So we are constantly growing our leading edge. And how that plays out is almost solely dependent on how we see ourselves and the story we tell ourselves of whether we are worthy and deserving of it. But it’s a story, to which you hold the pen. And while there is no eraser, or white out, or delete button, there lies before you endless pages, empty, waiting to be filled.
Be courageous my loves - take up your pen and write your own ending! One that mirrors your worth and puts on display for all to see your Real authentic self…’Because once you are Real, you can’t be ugly, except to those who don’t understand.’
