The psychological attachment to another through fear is a deep-rooted byproduct of abandonment having yet to be resolved. Detachment, while challenging from time to time, helps those who are in need of affection to redirect it toward themselves. We are not mentioning this to bring our scribe’s new man any element of concern; however, we are bringing it up to remind those who are in fear of exposing their tender underbelly, as I referred to it yesterday, that it is perfectly acceptable to slowly allow someone else to tenderly soften those areas in need of tender loving care, and also that it is perfectly acceptable to know and accept that he or she is also willing and able to give and do exactly what is needed.
“There is so much armour in the world,” I could mention. Immediately, those of you who are attached to your armour might easily imagine a knight in shining armour, being that a damsel in distress usually wails in self-pity in a tower of her own making because she has yet to muster up the courage and fortitude to gingerly imagine finding a locked box somewhere and coercing someone outside her dormer into finally setting her free. Both the knight and the damsel need to understand that they are not giving away their power by choosing to allow freedom to become a truth and not an illusion. If anything, true power comes from the resolve to dismantle all the barriers to love within the self.
While it would be all fine and wonderful to imagine said knight and said damsel traipsing off into the sunset and living happily ever after, those entering a romantic union must first be willing to detach their respective ego’s fears from an outcome at the outset (not to mention a botched ending, for that matter), in order for this to have even the remotest chance of happening. This, too, is challenging for many.
“Where to now?” I could then ask.
“If only you understood me as I want to be understood,” the damsel could cry out, to which the knight, if he were to lift up his mask ever so slightly to peer into her fear, might very well be asking her the same question.
“Are you at an impasse?” I could inquire, prodding both of them to release their self-imprisonment without attachment to a reward, “Or are both of you going to sit there and ruminate upon your past relationships and try to determine whether the new person who has entered your life is indeed half of the man or woman you were intimate with previously?” Such questions need not be asked outwardly, but they most certainly do need to be asked inwardly, for those of you who are stuck inside your armour or your castle must lower your masks and your defenses in order to experience the oneness of your union. A botched ending cannot occur if both parties are willing to consciously set an intention to heal their wounds first or at least be willing to ask for help pulling the weeds that are preventing their hearts from embracing love in its entirety.
We do not identify with those who speak ill of others who choose a same-sex partner, by the way, as we, like so many of you, believe that love is, indeed, love.
Today, we would like you to ask yourselves how you would like to redefine love. Whether in a romantic relationship or otherwise, those of you who are convinced you will fall into a deep pit of despair must also understand that a dragon knows full well where to lay its egg, and a deep pit of loneliness and sorrow might very well be the ideal place to allow the knight to witness the dragon’s rebirth, just as easily as the damsel could do the same.
Be willing to redefine love today. The only barrier to receiving love exists within your mind. Do not allow the mind to envelop the heart in that madness, for both the knight and the damsel, while wounded from their past entanglements, might very well have met someone who disentangles all the words of self-condemnation the wounded child within who is in desperate need of attention first heard from another and subsequently believed were true. Be willing to give yourself that attention first. Everything else will fall into alignment.
Once upon a time, there was an inner child who started speaking to herself the way she wanted to be spoken to. “You’re worthy,” she said into the castle well, and the same words were repeated in return.
I am Maitreya, on the High Council’s behalf. We are with you always.
