For those of us who continuously look to knock down the barriers of the ego and strive to always put forth our true self, life is a perilous journey. I say embrace it; embrace the light, the dark and the grey in between. Embrace every moment as it comes.
“Chaos is what we’ve lost touch with. This is why it is given a bad name. It is feared by the dominant archetype of our world, which is Ego, which clenches because its existence is defined in terms of control.” ~ Terence McKenna
I’ve come to know within myself, that the best remedy for the struggles in life is to trust, to smile at the fleeting nature of it all as we try to find peace walking the beautifully precarious path of self-discovery. In every moment, when things are easy, and in every moment when things are hard as all hell, inhabiting that moment and trusting that the next will be exactly how it needs to be.
Trust in the Process.
“The next message you need is always right where you are.” ~ Ram Dass
For the times we feel lost, when we have come out of touch with our sense of direction, it’s time to stand still. Breath in our now and remember that sometimes the way forward is simply trusting the questions, trusting that all will fall into place.
“Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.” ~ Rainer Maria Rilke
And really, all who wander are not lost. So wander curiously with an open mind and heart, wander with your questions and never forget that in the end, we’re all part of the whole. From the very beginning we were connected, we were never alone. The stumbling and messiness is all part of the process. As perilous as life can be, it’s all that we have and it’s all bringing us back home.
“None of us knows what might happen even the next minute, yet still we go forward. Because we trust. Because we have Faith.” ~ Paulo Coelho
