Oh, the Opening...

I often come to very powerful catharses that speak clearly to me the way I need to work moving about this world.
Such a frightening and necessary way for our true selves to emerge. Yet why am i battling with it? I know if I shut myself off and down that I will have nothing good left to stand on. I know if i embrace my true fears of being seen and heard, that I will often look differently, and speak from a more authentic place!
So why the Big Scary? Maybe the reasons don`t matter as much as the purpose. so I will leave this here now, fluttering about on it`s little wings, for another voice in the void.
Hello there. I know fear well. How bout you?

p.s. i love words, and their true meaning, and epitomes, etc. so I`m including this one here... (you know you already know what it means)

Catharsis: 1. the purging of the emotions or relieving of emotional tensions, esp. through certain kinds of art, as tragedy or music. 2. Medicine/Medical. purgation. 3. Psychiatry. a. psychotherapy that encourages or permits the discharge of pent-up, socially unacceptable affects. b. discharge of pent-up emotions so as to result in the alleviation of symptoms or the permanent relief of the condition.
So, yay!
And I`ve barely begun...

Sooo scary to leave myself vulnerable and open. I can do big emotions; it's the small ones which make me cringe. My goal is to walk with discomfort and experience the unglamorous aspects of myself. It's all God anyway- just I see it as shameful. A male Scottish upbringing taught me to only show the strong side or what i perceived as such. Thank you for your comments. I'll look to be strong in my extreme human vulnerability too. Keep in touch.
