The Threshold of Change

To enter a new life we must be passionately engaged and self-aware.

To acknowledge a new threshold is always a challenge. It demands courage and also a sense of trust in whatever is emerging.”
~John O’Donohue~

Some changes call to us. A new life beckons and we must go through the process of releasing all that has become so familiar while we walk forward into the unknown. This aspect of transformation contains the paradoxical emotions of fear and excitement within it, and we can diligently explore what we’ve learned, honor the process and listen to our inner wisdom. When you stand at the threshold of a new life, consciously and lovingly bid adieu to the old through ritual, meditation or prayer, and walk forward with faith.

Some changes are thrust upon us: financial hardship, illness, loss, betrayal… these collective and personal moments of dramatic and immediate change call upon us to move into acceptance as we find a new way of being in the world. It’s important to remember that everything serves a purpose. At higher levels of existence, love is always in play. Part of the human condition is to be blind to all the nuances and purpose of these changes; therefore, trust is required. The spiritual process calls upon us to explore the mysteries of life in order to discover the gifts and blessings that abound.
