Dramatic transformation is always preceded by chaos.
“Experience life in all possible ways – good-bad, bitter-sweet, dark-light, summer-winter. Experience all the dualities. Don’t be afraid of experience, because the more experience you have, the more mature you become.”
Awareness is the first step of transformation. Begin with acceptance of what is in the present moment. Nurture your awareness. Slow down and truly experience whatever life has to offer. There is sacredness and delight to be found within these opportunities to rise above.
Giving and friendship are the greatest expressions of love. While the ego operates from a place of fear, poverty consciousness or lack, the light within your soul knows beyond question that your greatest contributions to the world come from a place of compassion and kindness.
The darkness and light of our collective experience teach us that contrast is absolutely required in order for growth to occur. Many forms of life absorb nutrients from deep within the earth and ultimately emerge into the sunlight when ready to receive it’s gifts. The shadows of the unknown give our experiences texture and form until we too are ready to receive the gifts that the Divine has to offer.
