The Nobility of our Scars

Our scars make us real. Our scars define and redefine the etchings of experience into our mind. We are not our scars and the scars that we carry from life are not who we are. They are badges and honorable medals.

Many of us try to hide the scars we carry – emotional, spiritual, as well as physical. Whether one’s scar is a learning disability, an addiction, a loss, or a physical demarcation, our scars bring up our deepest sense of shame. And, this shame twists our perception of the world, and we look askew at everything we see. Some people do have more scars than others and, if you are one of these lucky people, please listen.

Carry your scars as a Queen or a King would carry their crown. Whatever it is you have survived through, it has given you wisdom and a deeper perspective on life.

Drop all shame for doing what you think you should do and instead, embrace the foundation of your Soul’s calling.

Scars are a thing of beauty. In nature, a tree may lose a limb and then that place grows over. That place becomes a very important part of the nature of that tree. And, when you look at a tree you would never think it was ugly, yet it was scarred.

Begin to look at the scars within yourself just the same way. You are, in essence, a human being and you have a certain way you look and a way you are that differentiates you from another – the way one tree is different from another. But, your scar does not define who you are. It simply gives you the character of  your nobility.

What we are missing today is the common sense of nobility, of each one of us. To be noble is not about being an authoritarian. To be noble is not attached to any position in life, or status. To be noble means that you can stand tall, with character, even through the many hardships life might throw. True nobility comes from living a life fully. And, if you have lived a full life, there will be scars along the way
