Sometimes, things end
Sometimes, stuff breaks down
Sometimes, everything falls apart
Whether it’s plans, dreams, hopes,
Whether it’s society, culture, structure,
Whether it’s relationships, career, status.
Whether it’s the lives of the ones we love
Or a complete stranger, or our own life.
It clears the way for something new.
It’s a death.
And death begets life
Death creates a new beginning.
Do not fear change
Do not forsake what needs to be dissolved.
Do not deny the death of what is ready to transform.
Embrace the process
And let the fresh green shoots grow.
Embrace your truth,
The old ‘you’ dies
The old life is ready to fall by the wayside.
The new is constantly waiting to be born.
Our fear of death is as much about our fear of life, our fear to live.
We fear change and cling to the familiar.
The challenge is often that we are not good enough, we are not worthy,
We cannot step up.
Be brave, beautiful soul, you were made for this constant dance of death and life.
They are always present, whether you fear them or not,
Whether you engage or not.
You are worthy, you always were.
You are worthy to fully engage in truth
And death is truth
Life is truth
They are both beautiful and necessary
You are safe with them, they belong with us.
Surrender, trust, accept, receive.
