As I was walking I felt grit in one shoe. I have had experiences before when I've felt grit in my shoe or in my eyes and have reminded myself that "All is Love" and the grit has dissolved into nothing. So I reminded myself that "Love is all there is" hoping it would just dissolve, but my friend was having none of it. It moved from my heel to my toes and back again to my heel. It's amazing how one little piece of dirt can create so much discomfort! It's as if it was saying: "Let me out! Let me out!" I had no choice but to take the shoe off and shake the grit off.
For me, that grit represents belonging. The grit knew it didn't belong in my shoe and I knew the grit didn't belong in my shoe either so we were both in agreement. When I let go of the grit, we were both happy.
I believe intimate relationships are like my experience with the grit. If you don't belong together, if your hearts are not truly one, no matter how hard you try to make it work neither of you are going to be happy; nor are you going to thrive in that relationship. It's better to let each other go so you can both find and be with what truly belongs to you.
I have also observed the same is true with experiencing the desires of my heart. That which truly belongs to me is harmonious and effortless compared to that which doesn't.
What truly belongs to me is mine for all time.
