What is alive in your heart? What are you currently integrating? Recently, I have been feeling like I am in a cocoon... no longer a caterpillar, not yet a butterfly, rather the molecular goo trapped in a dark shell (Thank you Christina Niven for this description). Faith immediately comes to mind as I experience this transformation - feeling the edges and unintegrated parts of myself and the collective. Trusting in my spirit to integrate these valuable lessons and come back to the light within. Without judgement I am able to witness whenever my pessimistic ego attempts to kill all hope and I reach an upper limit in my current realm of identity. To restore optimism, Love has been the most useful tool in my blooming inner garden. Not the "eat a whole tub of ice cream and have a bubble bath" excuse of self love, but rather the messy, non-judgemental, generous AND radical self compassion it takes when you fall for the hundredth time. The experience of agape; true unconditional love for oneself and another.
So I am integrating faith... a foolish amount of faith by way of the super highway of surrender. Consciously participating in my actions in life (in breath) and experiencing fully letting go and surrender (out breath). Practicing daily to liberate the layers of limiting beliefs and trust in the process.
My truth and prayer... That all beings be happy and free.
