Dear courageous heart
There are times when you stumble around in the dark unsure of where you are going or how things will turn out, what’s the next step or even what you really want.
You stumble, you fall, you get up and climb a mountain and feel victorious only to stumble again and be unsure of what is next. The cycle starts again.
You might think something is wrong. You might think that you made a wrong turn, took a wrong step or missed a sign – you did not.
Life is a creative process. It moves through phases, it spirals and repeats lessons you thought you had already learned so that you can learn them more deeply.
You may find clarity for a while, but then it may dissipate before your eyes and you must reside in the fog of not knowing until you can begin again to vision what it is you are here to create, live, and experience.
You may achieve your goal. You may feel satisfied and victorious for a while. But then the cycle will begin again. We only arrive somewhere to leave again. Life is always in flux if you look beneath the surface. Even in stillness there is movement.
Become intimate with life’s creative process and learn to trust its ebbs and flows, straight lines and meanders, then you will know that when the ground disappears beneath your feet, nothing is wrong, it’s just a time of groundlessness. When movement seems to cease, it is just a time to rest and wait here for a while. When it all goes up in flames, it will soon be time for the phoenix to emerge from the ashes.
When you trust life’s creative process, you will know to challenge that voice that says you made a mistake and got it wrong. Instead you will know to follow the threads and timing of your own unfolding. It is your unique path and it will take you into the miraculous.
With love and courage,
