Lovable?

Lovable?

Maybe –

I hear it;

I say I know it;

I pretend I believe it –

because I’m suppose to?

But I’m not sure it dwells in my bones.

Do I believe it – truly?

Is it ingrained in me?

Does it flow through my veins like life?

And who tells me otherwise?

“They”?

Power seekers?

Wealth addicted?

Fearful “others” – needing to protect themselves?

Control hungry egos?

Religion?

Family?

You?

Me?

When did I start trying to “measure up?”

When did I abandon a childlike trust?

What if . . .

I am treasured more deeply than I know?

I am loved by Love?

What possibilities . . .

what change for good;

what risks I would take;

how I could love others more deeply – be love-able . . .

If I but lived this truth and bore it deep in my bones…

St. Theresa said. “My deepest self is God” it’s true. So how could you not treasure yourself? I use this as a beginning for meditation. God does the rest.

Thanks Kathy for the St. Theresa quote. A good way to begin the discipline of meditation. I agree. I feel we work at faith too hard and do not let God do the rest. And, unfortunately, many people with whom I interact do not see God’s fingerprint within themselves. Thanks again.
