Exploring Gender Identity

a Story Told

on March 21, 2014

The power of telling your story cannot be underestimated.  Your life is your story and yet your story is only that, a story.  It is not the essence of you or even the result of you.  Part of this journey is understanding you are much more than your story and at the same time using this story for your own enlightenment.  Celebrate your story by sharing it with others while you contemplate the nuances of the tale.  What lessons have you demonstrated?  And I say demonstrated because learning is a process of demonstration.  It is like building a tree house, looking up at it and appreciating your accomplishment, then using it for your highest Joy.  How would you do it differently next time; …can it even be improved on?

Share your story and then contemplate your desires and dreams.  This is the story of your past and who you were all along the path combined with your present story of who you are, extending to the story of who you will become… the future self…your dreams and aspirations.

My story is found here on my website and while it is brief, meaning much was left out, it is the part I find most significant to who I am now and who I desire to be.  Identity is a funny animal.  I mean identity is so fleeting and yet a core remains which guides the daily discoveries of self.  Certain identity is chosen before birth and is fixed for each lifetime.  Things like race, heritage, sex, gender, and such are fixed at birth.  As much as you may try to change these the reality is fixed.  So what you do with the cards you are dealt so to speak is up to you and this defines your story!

I find this journey of discovery and self-realization to be invigorating and enlightening!  While at the same time it is daunting and intimidating.  Looking into the eyes of God often seems to be more than anyone is willing to do.  However, this is our journey!

The next step for me is embracing my dream of a Love Based Society and while I left myself out of this book on the topic, this is the world I see myself living in.  What my identity is does not matter, it is unimportant.  What I crave most of all is the feeling of belonging without judgment… total acceptance… the support of society and the love of my neighbor, living in a world where everyone is supported and loved because we all realize our connection, our interdependence.

So Share your story!  Live your dreams and on every step of the journey give gratitude for the opportunity!  I certainly do, … deep gratitude to you for reading this tale and for sharing your own, together we make great harmony, a wave upon the ocean of life!
