Love Returns

When he was 40, the renowned Bohemian novelist and short story writer Franz Kafka (1883-1924), who never married and had no children, was strolling through Steglitz Park in Berlin, when he chanced upon a young girl crying her eyes out because she had lost her favorite doll. She and Kafka looked for the doll without success. Kafka told her to meet him there the next day and they would look again.

The next day, when they still had not found the doll, Kafka gave the girl a letter “written” by the doll that said, “Please do not cry. I have gone on a trip to see the world. I’m going to write to you about my adventures.”

Thus began a story that continued to the end of Kafka’s life.

When they would meet, Kafka read aloud his carefully composed letters of adventures and conversations about the beloved doll, which the girl found enchanting. Finally, Kafka read her a letter of the story that brought the doll back to Berlin, and he then gave her a doll he had purchased.

“This does not look like my doll at all,” she said. Kafka handed her another letter that explained, “My trips, they have changed me.” The girl hugged the new doll and took it home with her. A year later, Kafka died.

Many years later, the now grown-up girl found a letter tucked into an unnoticed crevice in the doll. The tiny letter, signed by Kafka, said, “Everything you love is very likely to be lost, but in the end, love will return in a different way.”

I can’t stay, mother.

I love you, but I wasn’t born to please you

I wasn’t born to make you happy

or give your life meaning.

I wasn’t born to rot under your wings

like an unhatched egg.

I can’t stay, teacher.

I wasn’t born to be put into your boxes

to think along your lines

or to memorize your facts

I was born to think independently.

I can’t stay, my love.

I wasn’t born to satisfy your needs

to take care of you

or to hide in your arms.

I wasn’t born to make myself smaller

or to be taken for granted.

I can’t stay, boss.

I wasn’t born to make money for others

I wasn’t born to follow orders

or to repeat the same day over and over again

I wasn’t born for boredom.

I can’t stay, master.

I wasn’t born to follow your ideas of what truth is

or to live according to your dogmas.

I was born to find my own truth

and make my own rules.

I was born to meet life full on

To get lost on Indian trains

To be seduced by dangerous men

To meet different faces, places and cultures

to be out in the jungle all night

To run with wolves

To be swept off my feet

To be taken by storm

To be heartbroken

Devastated

Stunned

Shocked

Lost

Thrown into the deep

I was born to get my hands dirty

To get sand in my mouth

Mud on my clothes

Thorns under my feet

I was born to jump into the abyss.

I was born to meet aliens

To do rituals

To be cracked open in ceremony

To go beyond time and space

To welcome magic

To totally loose myself

I was born to feel everything

To taste everything

The bitter taste of sorrow

The foul taste of deceit

The sweet taste of love

I was born to learn how to handle change gracefully

I was born to know the truth

to learn how to fly

I was born to learn how to speak the language of love

How to unchain my heart

How to shed everything

How to let go of all expectations.

I was born to learn how it feels to lose everything

except what really matters.

I was born to live a life that would strip away everything that wasn’t real

that wasn’t true

that wasn’t me

I am a phoenix.

I am born to spread my wings and fly towards the sun

To burn up and turn to ashes

To fall down to earth and rise up again

When I am old

I will be proud of my scars

My wrinkles

My memories

My stories

My wisdom

My freedom.

I was born to be free.

And therefore, I can’t stay

Curing Masculine Toxicity : Acknowledge Sensitively

Awareness was lacking that supported of our sons

sensitivity , as trauma after trauma , and occurred

and never discussed , never healed ..

It’s time , Past time to support the sensitivity in masculine

end the shame

www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/the-introverts-corner/201911/masculine-sensitivity-cure-toxic-masculinity

What A Narcissist will never give , Closure .

Adore this lady and her approach , is direct and born of experience

and facts .

It was noted that our timelines correspond , 11-12 years of marriage

that is not balanced to say the least . We each had 3 children

we each have officially been divorced for 20 years .

Realized long ago I did not have a marriage , only

a mask , a surrogate , normalizer ….

More over , I knew the lack of self love and self worth

as shadow that exploded, with no warning …it only

became more intense , as he worked out of town

unavailability was normal even if in house .

Detached , withdrawn silent

Death

I felt the oppression 3 months

in , but had brothers and a society/religion that is a brotherhood

that allows a feminine to serve , with minimal support ..As a caregiver

from age 14 months , which is part of my character , as I was induced

to have experiences to forge my education .

The non responsive , non responsible deeply traumatized figure , knows

deep shame , rage from cumulative sources , but targets his spouse , thus

children and will never own it …regrets will stated , always the victims

always projecting . Lacking the support, ability , desire , in denial , missing

any and all signs from Divine , that stepping from the shadow , laying

burdens down begins with truth/light …It’s an inner job , and as I witnessed

the regressive , depressive , silence for 20 years , it has intensified with my

departure from a fabricated life of smoke and mirrors ..

Completion has long since occurred , for I am not bound in twinning our sons

as he does, bound to his trauma and secrets and abuses , as too often

occurs … it is so complete that despite attempts to keep the old cycle

are ongoing , often recycling the trauma of past , has no effect .

Only attesting to the closure at hand , in matters of business , which

will clarify the intent for the Abuse continued was and is financial ..

calculating , vengeful and locked in a maze of never ending anger

rage ….I let go of any connection in 2006…over ex.

Get over our sons ? Not happening Nor is the abuse of holding them

in shadow with the poison fed them , in order to win.

However , it is their choice , mine is to step out of a matrix

of brothers and sisters who feel I am unworthy , from

their shadow perspective of self preservation above all

Nope , I was induced into energies that have denied

my place at the table , doing much harm ; I have long

since delved into my shadow , heard extensive versions

of why I didn’t deserve to live ..

Fear , anger ..being bound , silent …death of spirit ..

I have noted that , recycling until finally other

experiences brought me to review …

I did, now weary … Freed to be me ..

Respect for that energy was chipped away, as my consciousness

and fear , inherent in loosing my life , did happen .

Making sure that happened , augmented by a brother MD

I was induced into submission , witnessed by 3 young men

who deserve , as I do , to be liberated from the falsehoods

and brotherhoods that wish to have us bound forever in

trauma .. repeating this in matters of finances , veiling

some pretty deep offenses , will not carry into 2020.

Of course , there is no response but silence , negational

approaches lost , the force that demands clarity will not

be denied …©️

Thy Will Be Done ♐️👁🌏✊

Blessings & Peace 🌈🎁

Special Men

Pornography has done women a huge disservice

In teaching men

What they now think women want …

Fast and furious

Disconnected

Minimal foreplay

Genital focused

Goal oriented

Release based

Penetrative

Sex

Nothing could be further from the truth

And to be fair …

Any man can do that

But to make love with a woman

Slowly

Gently

Vulnerably

Connected

Journeying

Exploring

Discovering

Focusing on her whole body

Feeling her soul

Touching her spirit

Penetrating her heart

Well …

That takes a special kind of man

A man who surrenders instead of controls

A man who gives as much as he takes

A man who opens his heart and not just his mind

A man who is not afraid to feel his depths

A man who understands his divine power

To lead her

To open her

To crack open her heart

A man who knows his gift

Is love
