Becoming a “New You”- The Illusion of Wounds
Where one wound touches
Mist of illusion.
Beyond the veil, only love.
Sometimes we become stuck in defining ourselves by our wounds, either the wounds caused by others or the wounds that we cause to others. This energy stagnates and we wonder why things do not change.
Relationship with wounded-ness becomes paradoxical. On the one hand, we relate through our wounds, seeking healing and understanding from others. On the other hand, we wall off our wounds and attempt to ignore any such pain associated with them.
We need to realize that every act or wound we choose to ignore, already exists within us as a state of grace and love.
We all have wounds, scars, places we protect. Our protection is only an illusion. To touch a wound, to feel our own pain, is our greatest awakening to understanding such pain in others.
However, we must not become complacent and let our wounds be our life stories. Reach through the illusion that you are less than perfect and there you will find love.
I created this piece of art after I had a dream. In the dream, I reached through the black place shown with my hand. I realized I was reaching through a mist, an illusion, and on the other side was love. All I had to do was step through.
I hope you feel the same in your own life. You are forgiven, you are loved. And in this understanding you will come to transform your life and the lives of those around you.
