BELONGING

Sylvia Marina - Monday, March 23, 2015

BELONGING
Outside on the back patio, three generations of family enjoying conversation, together, just being!

This is what it means to connect, to belong.

You must look past your flaws and frustrations and have faith that within you is everything you need to succeed, your strengths and gifts, intelligences and joy – perhaps you just need to
find a way to connect?

I love these times. The moment when a drop of water sneaks out the eye... a splash of gratitude, a trickle of love, a heartfelt moment of overwhelm.                                                            

And then... in my mind I momentarily transported my thoughts to another time when a blob of teardrops fell out my eyes for a different reason, the feeling of no-where to belong.

Growing up between two cultures there were incommunicable differences that demonstrated to me ‘I was an outsider’. A re-occurring childhood feeling of no-where to belong!
A horrid conflict that troubled me for years.

I’ve learnt, people do not have to be an outsider to be yearning love and experiencing separation.

Never lose sight of your purpose.
Remember, the tallest oak in the forest was
a little oak that held it’s ground.

I clearly remember the day I became aware that my past was a gift.

There were some moments when I connected when I knew the experience of belonging – it’s just so much of my years were spent ‘trying’. Was it like that for you too?

Trying to fit in, trying to be what others wanted me to be...that was most everyone except for, yes there were those....they loved me and maybe others did too but to know love one has to feel it in your heart and in your gut.

I confess, I didn’t know it at the time (there’s so much to learn and know when you are young), but I do now...to ‘belong’ is a basic need. Possibly in the minds of many I did belong, I just didn’t feel it and because I didn’t feel included, I thought I didn’t belong!

A thought is harmless, until we believe it! ~ Byron Katie.

It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that cause suffering.

To know you belong is sacred.

Feeling nature, breathing her air, sensing and living her changes.
Watching the marvelous-ness of the night sky, sensing the early morning stirrings and witnessing the day activities till evening calls to rest. The cycle of nature, the cycle of life – it’s sacred.

Surrender to the sacred – it’s a great place to belong.
