Definition according to Renee Tarot:
– a state of being whereby one overcomes all situations in life, whether good or bad, with a state of conscious, and intrinsically ethical, neutrality.
When I was a little girl my mother was quite nurturing toward me and my siblings, but my father struggled to connect with his own heart, how he felt about himself and how to nurture children (namely a child like me). He, and his father before him, had been beaten down by American society and its consequences on lower class families and the uneducated men that head them.
As a result, I felt he did NOT want me…..it was as simple as that. Consequently, I did NOT like him and the dislike morphed into a few different feelings over my lifetime:
- longing (ages 0-7)
- avoidance (ages 8-12)
- hatred (ages 13-21)
- pity (ages 21-32)
- forgiveness (ages 33-45)
- neutrality/duty (ages 46- present)
The final feeling is what I experience to this day and duty is based on the minimum of what I would want my children (or any other caretaker) to express toward me. I thank Spirit for the life lesson, which made me strong and provided clarity.
Nature teaches us despite the depths and joys attainable in any relationship, all eventually end in the 3rd dimension. This leads one to think we should operate with a sense that all we can hold on to is what we are, and any more that we need is given on a ‘need to have’ basis from the Universal Life Force. Each person receives an abundance of ‘something’, but no one can enjoy their ‘something’ without a paradigm shift with regard to what they lack.
If one is unable to see clearly, (s)he cannot judge.
If one is given so much that (s)he can attain nothing for him or herself, (s)he lives in a state of mental weakness. What one feels mentally eventually becomes physical.
If one is so hurt, (s)he cannot get past self pity, (s)he is unable to help others, thereby leading to selfishness.
I would venture to say ‘strength’ in 2019 is a rare commodity. If you don’t have it, find a way to get it.
P.S. Both my older and younger sisters had a completely different experience with my father, one that was more positive. People deal with us based on how we react to them (even parents), therefore ‘strength’ requires that we see things from others’ perspectives and avoid tunnel-visioned mentality in our own matrices, hence the desperate need for neutrality.
