I Want YOU To Be Made of Silk
“You're going to meet many people with domineering personalities: the loud, the obnoxious, those that noisily stake their claims in your territory and everywhere else they set foot on. This is the blueprint of a predator. Predators prey on gentleness, peace, calmness, sweetness and any positivity that they sniff out as weakness. Anything that is happy and at peace they mistake for weakness. It's not your job to change these people, but it's your job to show them that your peace and gentleness do not equate to weakness. I have always appeared to be fragile and delicate but the thing is, I am not fragile and I am not delicate. I am very gentle but I can show you that the gentle also possess a poison. I compare myself to silk. People mistake silk to be weak but a silk handkerchief can protect the wearer from a gunshot. There are many people who will want to befriend you if you fit the description of what they think is weak; predators want to have friends that they can dominate over because that makes them feel strong and important. The truth is that predators have no strength and no courage. It is you who are strong, and it is you who has courage. I have lost many a friend over the fact that when they attempt to rip me, they can't. They accuse me of being deceiving; I am not deceiving, I am just made of silk. It is they who are stupid and wrongly take gentleness and fairness for weakness. There are many more predators in this world, so I want you to be made of silk. You are silk.” ― C. JoyBell C.
[threw that quote in due to the many of us hammering out fresh work whilst gathering understandings upwards to highest good. ]
so you are thinking silk is not for you, too high maintenance. It is not in fact I have bundled, boiled and spin cycled many a garment. Fresh ironed or perhaps not, crinkles in the most lovely drape. Did i mention natural fiber too. Like people, there are several kinds of silk. Among my favorites are the luxurious silky glossy fine weave, the matte cloth, and a new discovery for me is silk/wool blend a beautiful open weave and dependable as the rising sun.
The bottom portion is the silk wool blend I referenced.
