The experience of life falling into place and into pieces simultaneously has somehow become the norm for me. When I embarked on my journey into A Course in Miracles in January 2014, I knew my life would undergo a transformation, a face-lift or call it a metamorphosis not unlike the caterpillar. I didn’t however grasp how this journey would shake, rattle and roll every corner of my universe.
Some days, for just a moment, I wish I could go back to the innocence. The saying, “Ignorance is bliss” resonates in those moments. Those overwhelming moments take their toll, undermining my plans and my confidence until I remember that the plan for me is not in fact mine. I am grateful for this journey into grace and can see there is indeed a bright light shining off in the horizon. Some days I bask in the glow while other days I can only strive to feel the warmth of the light.
I was inspired by the wonderful blog Writing To Freedom this morning to create this Happy Box that so perfectly illustrates my perspective these days courtesy of Rumi. To read his post about vulnerability click here.
I really do believe all the things that make us grow up, foster compassion, forgiveness and graciousness are also the events that bring us to our knees. May we all embrace our faith in something bigger than ourselves as we bloom into beautiful messengers of the universe/love/source/God.
Wishing us all peace, grace and love today and every day – Lisa _/|\_
