HONESTY MONTH: DAY 16: “You have to be transparent so you no longer cast a shadow but instead let the light pass through you.”― Kamand Kojouri

I am not sure that complete transparency is possible for us humans. But we can all learn to be less involved with Ego structures that are meant to keep us apart from others.

Judging, clinging to old ideas and stories around who others are or are not for us, keeping our pride in prime condition, all the old defense mechanisms. When we have an honest sense of who we are, it is no longer necessary to identify with Ego’s stories or protective measures to keep us “safe” from others.

There is no threat. What if we all just let others believe what they want and stop working so hard to be above, below, better, or worse than others.

We don’t need to be identified with anything or by anyone. We only need to enter our hearts and just BE. That is all. And transparency gives us the advantage of letting go of SO MUCH unnecessary baggage. But I still don’t know if we can ever do it completely. More will always be revealed…forever.

I am a therapist and counselor with long-term recovery from addictions and personal trauma. My writing reflects these experiences and the road I have traveled in 12-Step recovery settings, along with the work I have done for over 30 years in the field. My love of dolphins includes the stories of them being healers in places all over the world. I long to offer every broken spirit and body the experience of a healing hug. May my words and stories inform, uplift and delight your spirit and soothe your weary heart.
