Inclusion ~ A Journey towards Acceptance

I was just returning from office in the company bus when I thought of the 5-day Archangel hosting ritual my dear friend had  given me. I was confused about how to go about it on the second day and so messaged this friend about it. Turned out he was  busy in a recording studio. I had asked him to message back in return whenever he  had time and instead, to my surprise, he called me up. In the background I could hear the recording sounds as he was speaking  to me. This brief call lasted barely a minute but majorly shifted my life. I recalled my dad, who’s a violinist, who often  calls me up when he is in the middle of a wonderful show in which he, or some other musician is performing, just to have me  listen to something that had moved him. As I recalled this incredible gesture, tears sprang forth in my eyes. For years I had been struggling with the  feeling of being “abandoned” as a child. For weeks I had uncovered this ‘personal lie’ that I felt being shut out by people –  rejected and outcast. However, as I recalled my dad playing for me “happy birthday” when I was miles away from home, or when  I had run away from home in search of solitude, or the hours and hours of musical listening we did together all through my  childhood, and the hours of effort he took and the amount of money he spent in nourishing my singing talent, I was stumped as  to how deaf I had been. The ego had fallen. As I sat down at night journaling, I decided to write, in bold, in a place I  would NEVER forget, my deep appreciation for including me in his most creative life experiences (or life urges). As I  finished this, I felt compelled to thank and appreciate other people who have INCLUDED me in their life experiences which has  touched me to the core of my heart. (In no specific order except the first) —


I. To DAD – For being my Soulmate…the anchor my life still stands on – I DEEPLY APPRECIATE you for INCLUDING me in your  life everytime you heard a soul stirring tune that moved your heart, for every musical performance you shared with me over  the phone, no matter how much the distance between us – for including me in your life urge!
