One of the greatest, sometimes difficult and rewarding things to do in life is to ask for help. Don’t be afraid to ask for help; if you do so huge rewards, gifts and unexpected magic may come. Listen to your instinct and intuition to find the people to ask. You are not some isolated island, even if it may seem like it. Sometimes its the right thing to be courageous enough, human enough to ask for help. Sometimes you may need to evoke all of your wisdom, love, tenderness, wildness and grief before you can ask for help. Just reach out a hand through the storm and ask.
Let the asking come through you as if a larger force of life is asking through you. You are not alone. Self sovereignty and personal power are good, but they are meaningless unless we are able to ask for help and mutual support too. Asking for help is sacred. It is a blessed thing. And fuck the violent machine that says it isn’t. When you reach out and ask for help you build up a kind of debt to other people. Its completely different from a monetary debt involving interest and all that nonsense.
In fact this debt is mysteriously also a surplus; it become an empty fullness of love through which others gifts and generosity can pour into you. Become completely indebted to others and you create a community, you embody our mutual interconnection. Ask for help and support from your community, fill yourself completely with their beauty, support and gifts and then you can pour your own gifts and generosity back out into the world like a river of love flowing through your body and heart into the life.
