Completley Peeled Away


Dear Human,

I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST ugly there is indeed something beautiful just waiting to be found.

I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST pain there is indeed a relief that can be experienced.

I can’t say all, but I can say behind MOST sadness there is indeed a joy waiting to be discovered.

As you live LIFE, you actually develop layers around the center pearl of your
essence – or as some refer to it, your soul. They are initially developed to protect your heart and mind. Some of these layers present themselves in the form of self-deception, excessive egoism, vanity, jealousy, arrogance, haughtiness, lies and basically any negative characteristic that you develop as a product of your environment and life “experiences”.

LIFE however loves you so much that it causes the outer layers to get punctured, withered or bruised; requiring the need to be peeled away, much to your dislike.

Could it be possible that each painful peel allows the opportunity to convert hopelessness into beautiful hope? That as you remove the layers that no longer serve you, you reveal more profoundly the amazing identity of your pure essence?

Could it be possible that you might even feel a wonderful weight lifted from carrying that which was not meant for you in the first place? That the shedding of the weight brings you that much closer to being the light you already are?

Could it even be possible that while the act of exposing layer after layer doesn’t always feel good, it does improve your ability to see the world, yourself and your purpose as HUMAN much more clearly?

LIFE is NOT like a box of chocolates, it’s more like an onion. It is often nasty tasting and makes you cry. But you know what; because of that nastiness the box of chocolates taste, smell and look more desirable than ever.

Oh precious human, know that something beautiful awaits you everyday. As you feel the burning and stinging of life’s layered lessons that seem never ending … remember they are ending.

Really embrace all the sensations of existence  … for before you know it your life as human will be completely peeled away.

  1. ❤️ Thanks, and now that you remind me, I do remember that part. I love the Chronicles, read all of them to my kids about 30 years ago. ❤️💫

    I just remembered the Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader with this post. If you haven’t read that, there is a scene there which Aslan peeled Eustace’s Dragon Skin. It was very painful but after peeling, Eustace went back to his original form but he became a good person after that (he’s not a good person before that, he was hard-headed and a bully).
    Life is like that. Thanks for this entry, really inspiring! 🙂
