The saying ‘wherever you go, there you are’ is true for all of us.
We can dream of what a change in location or what a change in relationships will look and feel like, but actually taking the steps faces us with the stuff we just couldn’t see in advance, as much as we may have tried.
This is the alchemy of the unknown, and why it takes courage to choose it. When we are younger and more naive, we may be surprised by the pushbacks that occur in our newly chosen mini paradises, but as we mature some, we know the choice of change, even a choice we really desire, will face us with challenges, and that aspects of the content of these challenges can’t be known prior.
Our souls are not afraid of any of these challenges and even invites them, and yet, our identity self, the part of us most attached to our idea of who and what we are, can and usually has huge resistance to flowing in change.
Here is where loving and recognizing and negotiating with all aspects of our being comes into play. One is not from God and the other from Satan. One is not of the flesh and the other of the spirit. One is not for you and the other against you. All are you. All are part of love finding their way, from their awareness, from their motive of love, awaiting a you that can bridge and reconcile to their worlds.
Opposition and conflict inside of us is now no longer a surprise, but something to expect and respond to. Why else did we come here, but to discover our own trouble in paradise? We needed story and time and place as the soil of our growth.
All of this is process. Process is the arena within which we move, and live and have our being.
Where do you want to go? What changes are you aching to make? I don’t have any instant fixes, (as you don’t actually need one) but I do have a developed sacred process called SoulFullHeart that tailors to the individual and I invite you to check it out. I’d love to serve you and your movements as it would be part of my sacred process and movement to serve yours.
