I don’t know about you but I was born naked.
From early on we are told to cover ourselves. Cover our bodies, mask our voice, quiet our own wisdom.
Sooner or later, for love or hardship, we conform with the way we’re told to be by those who’ve come before. Are you happy with what you’ve conformed to in your life and relationships?
Does the life you’re living bring you joy and fulfillment? When was the last time you were fully naked? Naked in nature. Nakedness of body. Nakedness of heart, thoughts and emotions?
When we grow up we don’t become exempt from our vulnerabilities, we just become shut down. Closed. Separate.
When was the last time you were naked in front of somebody and openly let them drink you in with their eyes without shying away because of some conflicting inner dialogue?
When was the last time you texted somebody something that you know you should of said with your voice?
When was the last time you turned away from a conversation that could of led to a deeper truth and understanding?
Our vulnerability, our nakedness, is our soft spot and also a doorway to experiencing true power. In our nakedness, we’re open to the truth even if it hurts.
There is a saying that ‘it’s childish to want to avoid the pain of life’. We’re capable of so much more, if you want to be truly free and live open-hearted you have to be willing to stand naked before the things you both love and fear the most. When we hold that space for ourselves and others a greater path can emerge. From that love and intent inspired action arises, connection deepens, love reigns. It might be uncomfortable but I’d rather stand for a world that let love reign, what do you want to stand for?
