The path that connects
the old and the new -
worlds, paradigms, narratives, stories -
the complexity of messy, chaotic, dark...
like all that we know
all that we thought we knew
right before our eyes.
Sometimes we want that to happen.
Sometimes we need that to happen.
sometimes we can’t let go so that it can.
The temptation to
give into escape...
the gravity of it;
the pain of it,
for our attention to turn its way,
and desperately knocking
at our ego’s door to let it in.
But answering the temptation to escape
only detours our arrival at
these divinely pre-determined
coordinates on our path.
Our inner guidance knows
the way forward
requires us to dial in
and lean towards it.
we might not be able to see
that what lies ahead,
it’s something more beautiful...
and we can only truly see,
and be humbled by
it’s beauty and it’s magnificence,
through the intricate lens
of these deeply transformative experiences,
these universally gifted experiences
that we were brave enough
to walk through and not around.
