Through this touchstone object you realize (REAL-EYES) that you are stronger than you think, and through the invisible blessing transferred to you through this bond you discovered that you have embodied it’s strength and courage in a way that you no longer need to have that touchstone object always available, but rather have it always available to you within your heart.
Do you remember the children’s book, The Velveteen Rabbit?
Here is my favorite quote:
“Real isn’t how you are made,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘It’s a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.’
‘Does it hurt?’ asked the Rabbit.
‘Sometimes,’ said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. ‘When you are Real you don’t mind being hurt.’
‘It doesn’t happen all at once,’ said the Skin Horse. ‘You become. It takes a long time. That’s why it doesn’t happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand.”
