Spiritual Revelations for those seeking Humanity in Humans ~~CordieB.

I will know peace. . . when I reclaim all the pieces of my self ~Iyanla Vanzant

If you can’t seem to get it together, it may be that you have given too much of yourself away.  It may be that you have compromised, over-compensated, given in and given over so much of yourself that you no longer know where all of the pieces have been scattered.  Perhaps the things you thought you needed to do to get love, to experience yourself as loveable, to be acknowledged, left you splintered, shattered and broken into so many pieces you feel like you will never be able to pull yourself together.  Don’t worry!  You have simply experienced an invasion of the body snatchers!

A body-snatchers invasion will distort the truth about you.  It will make you forget your true identity.  it will make you feel guilty about your desire to take care of yourself and honor yourself.  It will point out the wrongness of your choices, the dangers of your decisions, the impossibility of your visions and the fallacy of your beliefs.  A little nip here.  A little peck here…

There is a way to pull yourself back together when you have been accosted by body snatchers.  You must examine all the times you gave others the right to make your decisons, when you expected others to do for you what only you had the power to do, when you gave others the right to decide your destiny and when you dishonored yourself in order to pelase others.  When you remember what you have done, forgive yourself!  Most important, you must say, "Never again."

Until today, you may not have realized that you had been invaded by body snatchers who have dismembered pieces and parts of your identity.  Just for today, protect yourself!  Be aware of the things you do that deminish and distort the sense of wholeness, worthiness, and your ability to make your own choices and decisions.

i just hear this talking so directly to me.. i have always been the one that went for the guy that had the highest possibly casualty rate,, and i do believe in trying to save so many,, i lost some of the best parts of myself… i am on a journey now to recover them,, i have no pie in the sky aspirations of ever being truly whole,, but i am gonna do whatever it takes to at least gather back most of what i so freely gave away…….

sometimes you are just so in tune with where i am…..

There is but one fundamental truth – universal love. Everything else is a disemboweled idealogical fiction. The body snatchers are the ethereal archons that have swooped down and robbed us of your birth rite. Our goal is to reclaim our manifest divine destiny. They are weak, but we are strong!
