February 17th - I'll hide...
Continuing with the Choosing You meditation – another powerful sentence, “When you hide, you’re hiding from yourself.” What – when I play hide and seek with my granddaughter, I am hiding from her.
I get the statement though…if I think about hiding from the truth, who is suffering the consequences more? If I think about avoidance, my avoiding is likely more damaging to myself. If I pretend a feeling, thought does not exist, it doesn’t just go away quietly. And so on.
Keeping things in the open, allows me the opportunity to do something with them. The appropriate action could be to just acknowledge and let go. It might be a possibility worth exploring for the betterment. A particular hiding, now outed, is strengthening the practice of faith. Such honesty from no longer hiding, could set one free!
The thrill is when the seeker finds you in your hiding spot!
Hmmm, and seek to be found…day 207!
Thank you if you choose to join the journey. Let's hope it is more fun than tears!
