Embellish from the Latin bellus meaning “dress up (a narration) with fictitious matter” and To make more beautiful, as by ornamentation, adorn

Today I was out for a walk and I was thinking about our Mythical Friends, especially those that have been depicted as evil and dangerous; specifically the Dragon who in western culture is feared plus the Vampire and Werewolf.
It is almost as if christianity has taken them and distorted their myth, folklore and legend to create fear. Why do I say christianity because it was Saint George that slayed the Dragon and it is a crucifix that can hold the Vampire at bay.
However it does go back much further than that or were the Myths and Legends of all the ancient gods only written 2000 years ago!!!!
These beings are our friends and protectors and by embellishing their myths with darkness, fear has been created within us, of some of our protectors, making us more vulnerable and easier to control.
Fear ~ False Evidence Appearing Real, is what is used by man to have control over his fellow man, yet we have many guides and guardians that are here to support us, to help us to live from our heart, to Live our lives; after all life is for living.
The intimation of so many teachings is that it is not okay to love yourself, when loving yourself is essential to truly being able to love others unconditionally.
We are taught that you have to think of others before our self but the truth is when you follow your heart you are doing the best for everyone else. By constantly doing for others you stop both you and them from growing and from living, truly living.
The more we think and do for ourselves the less control others can have over us, our true independence scares those in “power”.
By all means help others but help them to help them self, help them to learn to stand on their own 2 feet and to think for them self, to follow their own heart. That is the greatest service that you can be to another, that is the greatest love that you can bring to another.

This morning I woke with overriding thoughts and feelings about love.
Whatever the demons are that have showed up in your life, stay connected to your heart, stay connected to love, concentrate on the good that lives within you, the beauty that is you and surrounds you.
Love can conquer everything; it can help you to see through and past everything that is false.
When you live from your heart, embellishment isn’t required; all anyone truly requires is the facts, the truth, the simplicity, the beauty that is love.
Love will never let you down. Yes relationships may end but keep and hold love in your heart for you and it will show you more love than you could ever have imagined.
Love doesn’t require fear to “keep you on the straight and narrow”, love just requires more love, plain and simple.
When you remove all the embellishment from life and just get back to basics you find the truth in everything. You can see everything for what it truly is.
Some things have been wrapped in glitter and sparkles to attract your attention; others have been wrapped in darkness, engendering fear.
It is time to see with your heart and not with your eyes.
