We learn what we want by experiencing what we don’t want.
To release fear, I have to be confronted with it
I have to feel the overwhelm,
Breathe through the distress,
Seek out the light,
This confrontation happens daily:
The reminder to be grateful,
The reminder to surrender,
The reminder to be a vessel through which life flows.
The realisation that when I allow this, the magic of finding my next step happens, a solid footstep upon the earth, and
My heart relaxes just that little bit more into allowing space for this breath, and
The hopes that get drowned in the darkness start to gleam, and
I believe that serenity is just a finger-tip away, and
The Universe answers.
Dreams come true.
All of this occurs between heartbeats.
The gentle lesson that I know I will do well to remember the next time I need to expand.
