Each morning, I start my day by gulping down two or three glasses of water, I continue by drinking nearly a full bottle throughout my workday, make sure to thoroughly hydrate once I get back home from work and once more before going to bed. Interestingly enough, I have come to learn that the people closest to me have the same water drinking patterns.
Now, water is scientifically indispensable to life, and I was happy to know that my tribe is aware just how important water is to sustaining their vitality. Suddenly, it dawned on me that, in Romanian folktales, when the antihero defeats the hero; a compassionate soul (generally the princess) pours Living Water onto his remains, bringing him back to life, so that he may successfully fulfil his life mission, that of defeating the evil forces and freeing those in need.
Apparently, the Living Water is a biblical concept, which loosely refers to God, as a “spring of living water”. As you may well be aware by now, I am a firm believer that God is Love. If God is Love, and Living Water is God… you do the maths. The equation, therefore, can be translated as: when we love someone truly, our love offers them the necessary life force to accomplish their purpose on Earth. Through love, we support each other in being better humans and being better ourselves.
When people are out of touch with their purpose, when they are not striving for their betterment and for being of service to humanity, they greedily drink the Living Water, without understanding its value, without appreciating its refreshing, renewing, empowering force. That is, when, my fellow friend, your story must find a new hero, who will live up to his challenge of fighting evil by your side.
The past week has been one of profound karmic cleansing. I have finally gathered the guts to put an end to a relationship that had been dead from the cradle, whose only purpose was to make me relive the trauma of separation, time after time. Have you happened to watch the series “Lucifer”, you know that the definition of Hell is a place where you relive your biggest fear permanently and repeatedly, for eternity.
Being constantly reminded of the failure that he and I encountered in pursuing that intense emotional connection because of fears and limits imposed by flawed belief systems, has constantly felt like living hell, from which I was determined to redeem myself. As of now, all my karmic debts have been paid in full, and I can walk on through life as a free person, ready to embrace my future hero.
In the series, Lucifer, the Fallen Angel, receives his wings back, and has to re-learn to accept them and to use them for the purpose for which they have been created: absolute freedom and absolute good. To do so, he must graduate from the world’s toughest exam, that of understanding he is worthy of Love and forgiveness, and allowing Love to flow freely between him and humankind… like a spring of Living Water.
When we allow Love in our lives, we learn how to use our angel wings and we can truly enjoy our freedom. We believe that freedom is something granted to us from the outside. That someone must set us free, so that we may be free. In fact, freedom means letting go. Letting go of old patterns, old beliefs, old paradigms that keep us trapped in a place of fear, hesitation and darkness. Freedom means letting go of the absence of Love.
Yesterday, during our ritual of spiritual video calling, I was explaining to my mum and sister how I had to let go of my karmic soulmate, by saying something along the lines of: “I am sorry; I love you very much, but let me be”. Instantly, my mind reminded me of some words that I have always seen written as a closing line in the articles that my wonderful mother writes on her blog, Puterea din tine.
It is the ancient Hawaiian practice of forgiveness, Ho’oponopono. It translates as “I’m sorry, please forgive me, thank you, I love you”. In its Romanian translation, the meaning deepens with the inclusion of “I forgive you”, which, of course, is how one lets go of past hurts. As soon as I uttered those words, dedicating them to my ex, I felt cosmic energy filling my body and taking me to peaks of energetic release very similar to an orgasm, in that I called God’s name times and times over. While thanking him, being humbled and grateful for all the blessings I have in my life, and for all the love and support that I receive, in the pursuit of my life mission.
Therefore, my fellow friend, I hope you find the strength and courage to let go of the karma that is holding you back. The wisdom to forgive those who have hurt you, willingly or unwillingly, out of their own fears; the humbleness to ask for forgiveness for your own mistakes and fears and doubts and hesitations; the gratitude to see the lessons and to be happy you have learned them; and the freedom to love unconditionally. That will clear the path for the shared love that your Divine life partners, your tribe, are waiting to pour into your heart.
If anything, what I hope you will take with you from these ramblings of mine, is this: drink water, forgive, ask for forgiveness, be grateful, and love.
