For a few minutes I actually allowed that stupid word to make me feel less than, unimportant, not worthy, and invisible. Again.
Here's what I've learned through it though: What's MOST important, is to truly see MYSELF.
That's the awareness behind EVERYTHING. Every moment. Every contact. Every thought. Every feeling. It is all one.
You can become invisible ... so the only thing that is seen in your expression of beingness, is the Light of all that is. And in that invisibility there is peace, and power and purpose.
Guess what happens then? Nothing. The thought goes. I don't activate it further by dwelling on it, thus giving it momentum, I just let it go and I become present. "I am here. This is now."
Each of us has a unique "brand" of being. A way to live, a way to love, a way we exist that is unlike any other. It is entirely unique to us. It looks like no other, it acts like no other, it talks like no other and that is as it SHOULD be. You are here to be YOU. You are here to discover what is within YOU and to embrace that and offer THAT to the world.
