My father had a beautiful statue on his dresser made out of Alabaster. She was, to me, a “Lady of Peace”. It was my job to clean her. I only took such great care in doing so.... like it was supposed to be very important to me. I wish I had her now. I didn't know. But now it makes perfect sense to me why I always felt so connected to a statue. It was what the statue represented. This is a part of my DNA that I did not know existed, a part that is connected to Greece. I never, in my wildest dreams, would have thought that.
My point today is….
1. Talk to your Elders.
2. Ask as many questions as you can.
3. Listen, with your heart, to the stories of your ancestors.
4. Allow those who know the history of your family bring ‘sense’ to things that never quite seemed to ‘fit’ in with who you see yourself to be.
5. Be open to finding out new parts of you.
Today opened new doors for me. Silly as it may sound…. I feel more “whole”. I wish you this feeling.
I wish you peace in your heart and stars in your eyes, for if they are shining there can be nothing else but peace.
