Set your boundaries! Resolve within yourself to no longer attempt to live up to others perceptions and/or expectations. No longer allow intrusions into your sacred, personal space of the unconscious yet Supreme Conscious Self. These boundaries will allow you to commune with the Supreme Conscious within and IT will guide you into a natural fulfilling, harmonic destiny.
There, within the boundaries lies true freedom. An ember exists there and the lid of expectations and perceptions are starving the coal. The lid is lifted when boundaries are established and honored by you and others will take your lead. The ember indicates that this area is unapproachable; it is up to you to protect it as it protects you. Once the lid is lifted oxygen feeds the embers that will begin to grow into flame. Oxygen is the creative activity used to unearth and maintain your self established perimeters.
It is imperative for gender variant people to set realistic, comfortable, safe boundaries so that the lid will slowly disappear, and a healthy protected and protective ember may develop into a flame, increasing your life force. Your True Self will emerge and gently, yet intensely request to be fully present. Grant the request in your own way and self chosen moment, remembering not to be selfish. There is a fine line between self empowerment and self serving. No one’s timeline should be adopted as your own, for this will place an expectation upon you that is unrealistic. Maintain your boundaries. Your ember must come into its own, using its own Divine momentum by its own rite to manifest its unique flame; Its own pattern, design and varying degrees of temperature.
Eventually the flame will envelop you and you will be able to answer the age old question, posed to many including John the Baptist, “Who are you?” Confidently and assured you too will understand and in your own words respond in accordance with John when he simply stated, “I am the voice of one crying out into the wilderness. Make straight the way of the Lord.” (John 1:19-28)
Your cry into your wilderness is heard by the many silent yet hearing, listening, and speaking trees surrounding you. Go inside, toward the ember, within your boundaries and allow the oxygen, actively waiting, to feed you. Reach toward the Light, the embers’ Light, the sky Light and you will notice the more you reach the warmer you will feel inside and out! The now working, growing flame will envelop you! You are in the process, on the road named creative activity! Remain focused and steadfast in your naturally inclined way. For this way is Straight! It is Just and Balanced. It is Here, where you, my friend, will be shown the straight path and through creative activity will gain a clear picture of your identity. Thus: True Self Fulfillment.
