“It was when I stopped searching for home within others and lifted the foundations of home within myself I found there were no roots more intimate than those between a mind and body that have decided to be whole.” ~ Rupi Kaur
Ahhhh, deciding to be whole. I love that, and I would like to feel that I have made that choice for myself and it is what I strive towards... wholeness. How about you?
And wholeness depends upon a strong foundation, a groundedness of prepared soil on which you stand firm. You create a home for yourself there and decorate it as you please with precious ornaments and lush furniture. You feed your belly as well as your Soul with nourishment that also came from rich soil. You thrive when you decide to be whole.
And it is just a decision to be made! You make it for yourself, and start doing the work. It does take work, and you know that and do it anyway. You tend to the wounds, lick them even. You write your lists of who and what to forgive. Forgive and let go. You dream about all the nourishment you need, and then you take action to fill your basket full to the brim. Then you take that basket into your beautiful home and begin to nurture yourself in a devoted and loving way until you feel the wholeness beginning to take root.
Once you have steeped in this wholeness for a while, the outside winds blow and howl and you remain at ease within your foundation. Calm and surrounded by beauty. And you begin to share some of your trinkets with others, and they begin to get a taste of what wholeness and grounding could be like. Their curiosity begins to open little doors inside of them, and ripples upon ripples begin.
And all because of one decision ~ opening yourself to the rooted connection of your very own mind, body and Spirit.
