In my quiet time this afternoon, and as I was contemplating my beingness and state of heart - I began to experience an energetic flow through my heart from in front of me where I was facing a natural wooded crevice behind our home.
For some background, I have been examining my anger and how it affects my relationships throughout my life. I was not judging the idea of being angry – there have been many times where that is the most appropriate response to the situation – more so, I have been checking in on my anger for a couple of weeks as it rises up to be seen. I acknowledge that I have expressed myself in anger often when there could be alternate and kinder responses.
When your life has been so challenging that too often things happen that are harmful and out of your control – especially for small girls in a fundamental experience – it creates traumatic responses that are inappropriate expressions of that anger. So I’ve been examining, observing, considering, listening to, seeing, and hearing what the anger really wants to say, do, or be in me.
As I sat here considering that… and feeling the energy flow from Nature – THE KIND – came to mind. I know I’ve read some story of a group of beings called “THE KIND”. I googled and found the Furies (the Goddesses of Vengeance) were transformed into the “The Kind Ones.” Well, that fits.
The Erinyes, also known as the Furies, were female chthonic deities of vengeance in ancient Greek religion and mythology. A formulaic oath in the Iliad invokes them as "the Erinyes, that under earth take vengeance on men, whosoever hath sworn a false oath". wikipedia
That energy flowed through me as I felt my fairy wings emerging behind my back as the energy flowed through and circulated through my toroidic field. The ‘wings’ are just the flowing energy behind me. And quite Elemental.
To please the Furies, Athena offers them a legally recognized home in Athens, tells them that they will be worshipped after every marriage and childbirth, and that they will also have the power to bring fortune to Athens by controlling the earth, sea, and sky (essentially they will have power over the weather). Thereafter, they are called “The Kind Ones.” Ancient.eu
My life course has been NOT taking vengeance on those who harmed or mistreated me. Yet, my anger toward the treatment is unmistakable. So that anger (without vengeance) has propelled me to this moment, saved me often, and taught me much. I realize that anger without vengeance creates a deep seeded frustration that acts out when I see the behavior beginning in those around me that leads to what I’ve experienced as mistreatment.
Enter THE KIND. It is KIND to not take vengeance on those deserving it. Yet, it is also KIND to hold accountable those who mistreat others so the good of All may be greater increased. Kind and Vengeance can coexist but not Anger and Vengeance. The latter only destroys.
Vengeance: punishment inflicted or retribution exacted for an injury or wrong.
In the case of the Furies, they were the ones who exacted the punishment after conviction. This all relates directly to the current political and societal situation in the USA. Jesus showed that ignorance was the cause of his torture “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.” We must take that stance as we move forward AND transform the very systems and beliefs that cause such harmful, ignorant behavior. We must TEACH Kindness, MODEL Kindness, and cast out the ignorance that harms – within and in our culture.
We talk a lot about Boundaries and Walls these days. So many people are so happy with their boundaries that we find the world a challenging place to be. It is Kind to oneself to choose to be in loving spaces and relationships.
We watched The Celestine Prophecy again the other night and are reminded of what it means to be a Heartist – and to have Heartistry working through us. As Andras always says “it’s the direction of the energy.” When we flow energy out through our hearts and another returns that flow fully – magic happens. Love generates. Vibrations rise.
May we walk the path of THE KIND as we progress in Time with one another.
Inside your being in the depths of your heart is your open connection to Source. We meet there... in the Silence... in the Inners.
