“I was taught as a child to hide the Truth but today I do so no more.”
“Blogging is so phony”, Blind Eyes said to me. Nodding my head I agreed.
Funk, muck, yuck. That was exactly where I was in that Moment.
My eyes temporarily had become Blind. I was not flowing in Love, pain being just far too prominent. And the pain caused my Energy to plummet into sludge. I found myself unknowingly looking through the eyes of who I was talking with. Blind and critical. The mirror effect in action. And I had no clue what had just transpired.
Reality? What was that again? It seems I’ve been having time lag … reacting after the fact as if I had been deep sea diving and finally coming up from the bottom.
It wasn’t until more then a day later when my Energy had risen a bit, I realized what I had agreed to. Blind Eyes claims she loves me yet in saying blogging is so phony, she hurt me deeply. For goodness sake I show my Heart at Petals! I am the furthest thing from phony.
She carelessly and thoughtlessly tossed me along with all other blogs onto one untidy lumpy ugly mess … and then pronounced judgment as she stamped the label on, the one that said “Phony”. This according to her standards. And thus I was branded along with all other bloggers.
This woman has no idea what blogging even is!
I attempted to get the facts straight and stood up for myself in our next conversation, yet when I firmly said blogging is the furthest thing from phony, it was as though my words had become a heavy stone thrown into a pond, plunk, and just sunk. There was no acknowledgment that I had spoken. The conversation quickly came to an end. Within days of this conversation other “issues” cropped up based on Truth she did not wish to acknowledge, and I was told a “season” away from me was required. And so Silence is all I hear.
Sooooooo …. I come here to make things right so that I can move on! I will not allow this cavernous falling out over Truth to trip me up! Hi-ho … forward I go!
I abhor labels and I refuse to allow anyone, I don’t care who, to brand or label me!
Blindness hurts others, sadly to say, and those who are blind will not understand just how blind they are until Life throws them into situations where they now experience that which they were hasty to misinterpret.
In airing my woe here today about Blind Eyes, I hereby genuinely forgive her. You are my witnesses. I really do know from where Blind Eyes is coming from and so to free me from the burden of unforgiveness, I forgive.
Do I hear someone ask from what perspective this woman is coming from? Well … from where I see … Ignorance and fear.
You don’t understand what you yourself have not experienced.
So how, I ask, is it even possible to come to a so-called intelligent, informed conclusion about something you know absolutely nothing about? Hmmm … good question.
Introducing my husband’s work … he took this image while handholding a 2 second shot. The lens he is using is only a kit lens. I thought it fit in very nicely with my title of this post so I asked his permission for me to publish it. I did. I’ve really been trying to encourage him to pick his camera up. And lately he has.
