Thank you guys
So Wonderful to be able to share and receive genuine compassion reflected back.
This morning I'm allowing my awaress to to me to feel compassion for myself, for my friends here at Soulforce, for my neighbors and relatives who have struggled with their homophobia and guilt for having such feelings.
Even for my Judgemental mind which I believe needs the most compassion and virtually never gets it. My judgemental mind feels inadequate and fearful. That's why it is judgemental. I open my arms to the judgemental mind reassuring it.
To my Judgemental mind:
"You have done your best. You have taken the brunt of my fear, the false messages of others, and bore the brunt of the wounds inflicted by homophobia. Now I embrace you with love and compassion and gratitude."
"I forgive you without hesitation or reservation. It is time to come home. There is nothing more to fear from the past. The is no inadequacy to compensate for. You and I can integrate with compassion, without conflict and without fear. Welcome home. Sanctuary is here within."
In my mind I extend my compassion and love to my love circle. To Adrain and Gyver, to Otter and Phillip, to Sapphire wherever he is, to Puppy and To Petshop. I extend my compassion to the Faeries on Short Mountain and everywhere.
I extend my compassion to the members here at Soulforce To the present and past Equality riders. I extend compassion to Labguy, Daniel, Zerbie, BrianB, Keltic, Kara, MCstudent and Uncle Andy. I extend my compassion the the others who post here. And to those who summon just enough courage to surf this site but fear to do more.
I extend my compassion to those who made choices they regret. I extend compssion to those young adolescents who are struggling with the fear of inadequacy.
I extend compassion to those whose fearful minds cause them to prey on Gays and offer a message: There is a better way, The way of compassion. Follow the way of compassion and you will find forgiveness and lovingkindness.
Love and affirmation,
