What are you bringing in to the light this Spring?
I discovered this writing by David Whyte, called Hiding. He talks about the wisdom and necessity of `hiding`, of taking the time for solitude before emerging. I like this because all too often I judge myself for hiding and don’t see the value in it. Yet, as David Whyte says, if we appear too early in the world, we need care from outside us to be able to survive. What if we looked on our hiding as a time for germination, on our inactivity as time for interior growth? Here are some excerpts from it.
is a way of staying alive. Hiding is a way of holding ourselves until we are ready to come into the light. Even hiding the truth from ourselves can be a way to come to what we need in our own necessary time.………
Hiding is underestimated. We are hidden by life in our mother’s womb until we grow and ready ourselves for our first appearance in the lighted world; to appear too early in that world is to find ourselves with the immediate necessity for outside intensive care.……
What is real is almost always to begin with, hidden, and does not want to be understood by the part of our mind that mistakenly thinks it knows what is happening. What is precious inside us does not care to be known by the mind in ways that diminish its presence....

All too often, we care for others but don’t have time to tend to our own nurturing, or we think it is better to give than to receive. This week I got to experience a facial for the first time. It was an unexpected spiritual experience! I felt so much love coming through from my Ancestors via the esthetician and a message to `let myself receive love`. I will definitely keep listening to guidance on how to receive love.
Any moment can be an opportunity to receive if we allow ourselves to.
