I want to say thank you to Keteriya for sharing Ashara/Shara
Thank you to @anon39079500 as well for making the post.
I’ve been off the forum for a while now and only found this last night. Shara is a lovely picture and I found myself gazing at it, opening it and realised that I had what could be a precarious journey on my hands in the morning so I simply asked for safety and protection and thanked her.
I took a choice this morning and went on my travels knowing it could have resulted in a kick in the ass and a kick in the face at every junction.
I had to balance the idea of what I thought I deserved (I deserve a good day) with what I wanted (I want a good day) against a clear risk of injury.
On balance I could have decided that the risk of injury was more proportionate than the chance of having a good day.
Anything could happen and I chose to enter into a scenario where injury was pretty likely unless I had a great deal of luck on my side.
I asked Ashara/Shara for help.
Sometimes we just want to do what we just want to do even though we get a strong feeling we really shouldn’t for practical safety reasons.
And sometimes we think about deserving something, and how does that work??
In general I think we don’t get what we deserve. And it’s a bit of a funny word and we can choose to say that “to deserve” doesn’t apply. To simply choose is all that applies.
So I chose to go on my journey this morning. I didn’t know if it was going to be a good day or not but choosing fear and staying at home all day would only mean that I wouldn’t get to find out if it might have been a good day.
On the other hand, by taking that risk, and it was a real risk against safety, if things had gone against me then along with physical harm everyone would have said it served me right and I got what I deserved.
I mean, really, I shouldn’t have taken that journey, safety wise, but I wanted to because I wanted to experience the chance of a good day.
And guess what, I traveled in safety all the way there, had a great day and I traveled all the way back with no problems.
On reflection, when I got back home and breathed a sigh of relief I remembered how I asked Keyeriya’s servitor for protection and the fact that if my journey had gone wrong, apart from possible physical injury, the authorities would have thrown the book at me for sure but by circumstance I kind of had to do what I had to do.
The remarkable thing about this precarious journey and my calling on Ashara was that I felt reasonably calm along the way and very much at ease with the decision I made when I think most people wouldn’t have in this situation. The road was so much more clear than it should have been and I felt that the risk factor had shrunk to almost zero.
So thanks to Keteriya and Ashara I was afforded confidence, compassion, surety, peace and a great day
