You can bring attention to details to your bigger plans today, dear Taurus, but do your best to focus on work in progress rather than new endeavors. There can be positive word about a home or family matter now. Today and tomorrow are good for editing, ending, and tying up loose ends. Look for value in the projects, people, and efforts that you already have rather than adding more to your life. Talking about the bigger issues with family or coworkers can be enlightening. It’s a good time to sell your own ideas as well.
Rejecting another human being simply because they are human, has become a collective neurosis. People ask, “When will my soul mate get here?” But praying for the right person is useless if we’re not ready to receive him. Our soul mates are human beings, just like we are, going through the normal processes of growth. No one is ever “finished.” The top of one mountain is always the bottom of another, and even if someone meets us when we feel “on top” of things, the chances are good that very soon we’ll be going through something that challenges us. It is our commitment to growth that makes this inevitable. But the ego doesn’t like the look of people when they’re “going through things. It’s unattractive.
As in every other area, the problem in relationships is RARELY that we haven’t had wonderful opportunities or met wonderful people. The problem is, we haven’t known how to take the greatest advantage of the opportunities we’ve had. Sometimes we didn’t recognize at the time how wonderful those people were. Love is all around us. The ego is the block to our awareness of love’s presence. The idea that there is a perfect person who just hasn’t arrived yet is a major block. Our vulnerability to the myth of “Mr. Right” stems from our glorification of romantic love. The ego uses romantic love for its “special” purposes, leading us to jeopardize our relationships by overvaluing their romantic content.
The difference between a friendship and a romance can be illustrated with the image of a long stemmed rose. The stem is the friendship; the blossom the romance. Because the ego is sensation-oriented, our focus automatically goes to the blossom. But all the nourishment that the blossom needs in order to live reaches it through the stem. The stem might look boring in comparison, but if you take the blossom off the stem it will not last for long."
I’m learning when to ask for help and how to ask for help. I try to make everything happen on my own and by myself. It’s comfortable being independent and doing things for myself. I’ve been this way since I was a young girl, but where I stand on my spiritual path I understand that I have a hard time asking others for help because I’m afraid that I will be rejected. I didn’t know that before. I didn’t actually draw that connection until this week. I’m afraid that the rejection means that I am not worthy. It’s easy not to let people in - and I mean really let them in. There is a part of me that says if I let someone in and they see me as I am I will not be accepted. More specifically, there is a part of me that says, if I let a man in and see me as I am, I will not be accepted. This stems from the relationship I have with my father. Up until this point, I didn’t consciously understand this. I just knew the effects of this and not the cause. I knew that when I began to develop deeper relationships with guys, I would doubt myself, become detached or be the way I think they would want me to be. These relationships were just expression, manifestations and projections of the experience I’ve had with the first man in my life - my father. I’m in a space where I can be conscious to this truth and can actually heal that wound. I know I’m in the right direction because this the first time I’ve even expressed to a single being on earth. I am not broken. I am whole. I have wounds and they are healing at this very moment. Thank you God.
It’s time for us to stop saying we’re ok when we’re falling apart inside.
It’s okay to cry.
It’s okay to be angry.
It’s okay to make mistakes.
It’s okay to be disappointed.
It’s okay to let your heart break.
It’s okay to be vulnerable.
It’s okay to feel the depth and fullness of your emotions, even when they are painful. What will it take for you to allow your heart to just break? What is stopping you from just letting your heart open up? I think you and I have been taught wrong.
We can feel bad and recover."
