We all have the ability to be vulnerable. However, we may have at some point in our lives experienced the pain of being vulnerable without discernment. So much so, that many of us have come to confuse vulnerability with weakness. We have come to fear being vulnerable.
Discernment is learning to share our vulnerability with those who have earned the right to hear our vulnerability. Those who can hold space of empathy and compassion. Even then, there are no guarantees that we will not get hurt, offended or get hooked into ego created pity parties.
To embrace life fully is to be humble and grateful. To live each moment as a spiritual act of worship.
Vulnerability is at the root of humility. It is where perfect love drives out our fears and ego created sense of who we think we are. There is nothing certain in life except change. Humility and vulnerability allow us to be in a state of non-resistance to the what isness of any given moment and the changes that we may experience. We resist what we fear. We fear what we don’t understand.
Love always trusts, believes and knows that fear is an illusion that is meant to control us into playing small. In any given moment, every possibility of who we can be exists. Learning to express our vulnerability with discernment allows us to show up with power and an authenticity that influences us and those around us. We can learn to engage our world in a more meaningful way
