Someone I AM
Leslie Palacio

Someone I AM is waiting for my courage...The one I want - The one I will become will catch me...so let me fall, if I must fall."

This was a section of the lyrics from "Let Me Fall" from Cirque De Soleil. I was introduced to it from Josh Groban's Music CD. As I listened, this verse played over and over in my mind. It resonated strongly with many things going on around me.

As I pondered the verse and its beautiful meaning, I couldn't help but venture off into what if's.

What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my courage... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my compassion... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my allowance... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my gentleness... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my acceptance... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my truth... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my blessings... What if - Someone I AM is waiting for my unconditional love. You know... What if - The one I want... The one I will become is waiting for my realization that this is who I AM.

We get caught up in plays, dramas, events, emotions and many other things both relating directly to us as well as with others around us. I believe this to be just as valuable for sometimes we must see the play, the drama, the lesson to gain the life experience needed on the roads ahead. I've spent years trying to move beyond fears, pain, sorrow and other perceived heart breaks and challenges but the truth is all these things have given to me more than was lost or removed. Therefore, why do we struggle so to rid ourselves of these catalyst of growth? Why are we so hard on ourselves when things enter that we determine are unvaluable, too difficult, unfortunate or various other adjectives. Yes, all those experiences wrapped up in the things society and conditioning term unwanted, unjust, unwarranted and always, to our mind, unexpected. Yet we call it in and not only do we act surprised, but we quickly reason out our plan, our goals, our course of action. What if we just sat with it?

What if we just bless it as part of the greater whole and begin to realize what begins, must end. What presents itself will just as quickly vanish if we simply allow it as part of ourselves. When we feed it, worry about it, try to fix it or move beyond or around it - are we accepting and allowing? Are we truly understanding that it is part of us and has entered for a reason. All these things are very interesting if you begin to put down the various roles we assign ourselves. Put down Mother, Father, Daughter, Son, Grandparent, Aunt or Uncle, Boss, Employee or Co-worker. There is no need for labels, even to the point of judgements of successful or unsuccessful, rich or poor, good or bad. There is not even a need for identification if we begin to realize everything around us is of God. Would the perspective change if suddenly that ex-spouse or irritating neighbor was perceived as God? Awww... gets the mind cranking doesn't it... (Laughter) I do believe we are masters of the mind and at this time are awakening within the dream and beginning to realize we are not only masters of heart but we are the collective heart itself.

Think about it...
"Someone I AM is waiting...."

Heart Blessings...
Leslie
