i’ve been thinking a LOT about shame.
so i started some google play with it.
that it’s ACTUALLY A BABY NAME PEOPLE CONSIDER!
and these were some of its meanings. as a name:
darling. man. free man. singer. plain. meadow shire. bright meadow. coral. maiden. virgin. charity.
super fucking interesting.
i ponder. often.
about the nature of things
how people are responding to ‘things’
Shame & Fear
are leading (one of) the packs for domination.
in the personal development world
shame comes up a LOT
in the bodies and BEings of many.
especially when it comes to sexuality.
well. you know.
it’s a wild, rampant (& often calculated) beast
controlling the F outta many.
they hang out together.
Shame has always been a little foreign to me.
i don’t think i’ve ingested it much. thank goodness.
i DO know the look of shame
the stare of shaming.
like when i’m NOT doing the thing
that others are doing
so SHAME ON ME.
why the FUCK would we want to add any MORE shame to our shame saturated experience?
well this whole crazy you-know-what experience
has been an incredible opportunity to PURGE some fear.
we wouldn’t feel so damn much of it
if it didn’t already exist within us.
many of us have been holding HUGE FEAR RESERVOIRS within
just waiting for the opportunity to remove that dam.
so perhaps it’s the same with Shame.
are you dishing it out? feeling it come toward you?
just noticing the absolute madness of the now UNdammed flow?
for one (& prob for many)
would really like shame to be something that doesn’t actually exist anymore.
it feels fucking terrible
in anyone who holds it
feels its wrath.
i realize that in order to clear some shit
we may have to feel it first.
if you are feelin it
consider -acceptance- instead.
we have all done things.
we sure as HELL don’t need to make anyone ELSE feel like shit because of their choices.
accept that we ALL make choices
even if it’s not what YOU may choose.
Keep Choice Alive.
and your choices.
and their choices.
we DON’T need to be adding MORE shame to any reservoir.
a Shame Drought would be Mo better.
and then maybe
that name- Shame
would and could ACTUALLY mean:
cuz it has been healed INto its next version of itself.
ps. Dandelions heal anger & judgment 🙂
