The Walls That Define Us

Where are your boundaries?

Do you have a good handle on what is and is not acceptable to you? Do you understand your own limitations beyond which you are not prepared to go?

We tend to imagine boundaries as invisible energetic barriers that determine self preservation and protection from others but what if your boundaries also represented your limitations?

What If boundaries were simply an excuse to never take a risk? The walls that define us may be presenting a version of ourselves that is constrained by fear based imaginings keeping our worlds very small and preventing connection on a deep and beautiful level.

Separation is an illusion created by humans to identify less with the Divine and more with the misconception of ownership. We live in little boxes literally and symbolically to further demonstrate that what’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine… The boundaries aren’t a bad thing, they aren’t a good thing either, they are a mechanism by which we keep the world outside… but they also keep us locked in.

The sad thing is that from within those imaginary walls we peer outside and see heartbreak and tragedy and we sigh, then go on with our own little lives relieved that “out there” is somebody else’s problem… that’s not happening in my little piece of the world.

So we stay on our own side. We don’t connect. We don’t take the time to talk. We don’t feel the need to get involved. We reinforce those boundaries and challenge any that come too close.

When did we forget who we truly are?

As an antidote to the disconnected world today, reach out to a stranger, offer a smile, offer your help, share something (and I don’t mean on Facebook).

The power lives within each of us to bring down the walls that define us.

Principle 1: I AM God.
