A Dance With Fear
After we spoke the other day, i thought about humour; how humour helps us overcome conflict and move through suffering. Humour being the other side of any situation.
How much courage it takes to step into a situation where someone else is suffering or feeling pain. Not undermining their challenges in any way, but being big enough in oneself to embrace them, regardless of what they exude.
do i have this capacity within myself?
Am i big enough, strong enough, courageous enough to trust that my love for them is greater than their fear? Whatever their fear may be, even if it’s to do with loving me.
And when the flames have burned to the ground — stand there, unscarred by a shield of humour — the wrath of fear can’t touch this — because I love you anyway.
And you know what? Me loving you, actually has nothing to do with you.
It has to do with how much courage i have — to love. To give. To truly give.
Because I am Enough.
With this kind of courage we can do anything.
Give them a wink & a smile, reach across the walls of their fear. Even if they draw their sword and threaten — don’t you dare come near me. I hate you right now.
Take a step back.
And then forward.
Is this a dance, now?
And In —
Yes, it is.
And Love always takes the Lead —
