I am listening to the audiobook Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. I chose the audio book because I found reading it difficult, as it takes place in Ethiopia and has names and places that are hard to pronounce. I got stuck on that, yet felt drawn to know the story.
In one conversation the father figure says Complete what is Incomplete. For a myriad of reasons, I am sure, this simple phrase pierced me. I hit pause and sat with it for quite some time.
I asked aloud, So how do I complete something when the other person will not allow it? I could have ranted on a bit, but that would change nothing.
How do I complete something when there is an unwilling person on the other side of what needs completion?
Well, from where I sit, it either is left undone, incomplete or I have to shoulder the brunt of the work and complete it on the higher planes.
And then I can go into the fairness of it all. Why do I have to do all the work and s/he gets the benefit of it? And that question segues into Forgiveness. When we choose to forgive, we are not doing it for anyone else but ourselves. Forgiveness is a selfish act; it is an act of self preservation.
So if I really don’t know how to do this once I get to the higher planes and complete the incompletion, I get to learn and trust. And when I do that, I open myself up to being willing and being open to instruction from my Unseen Team. I get to wake up (literally, not figuratively) or come out of meditation and trust the process that something has been accomplished, and that over time, I, the human, will feel it is complete.
And then I get to step into Gratitude and Grace.
So while I, or you, may have someone who refuses to close the circle, as I would name it, look at the process we’re taken through:
• Incomplete, broken
• Willing to be willing
• Open to being taught
• Truth, faith, trust
• Completion, albeit in steps – large, medium, small or mini
For me, it does not negate the human longing for closure, the sense of something needing to be fixed, remedied, but it’s the next best thing.
And it takes me further along on my own personal Ascension journey. And then when you find yourself in a situation where human fear prevents you from experiencing completion the “easy” way because of someone else’s choices, I can help you. Because I’ve been there.
