the exquisite & necessary choice

The dream is the small hidden door in the deepest and most intimate sanctum of the soul, which opens into that primeval cosmic night that was soul long before there was a conscious ego and will be soul far beyond what a conscious ego could ever reach……Carl Jung

how can making choices be the radical shift that corners us or exiles us or both? confronting ourselves is the beast and the victim from end to beginning and back again…..tremble lightly…..

To be fully alive, fully human, and completely awake is to be continually thrown out of the nest……Pema Chödrön

to hang upside down

I remember when I first became aware that my life was, in fact, a journey in spirit. For me, that meant that life wasn’t just something that happened to me between birth and death. I had some choice about how to play the game called life. The more awareness that I had choice meant that my life from that moment was changed forever. Without the knowledge that you have choice, it is easy to live unconsciously. Life can be just something that happens to you. I have discovered that when one is committed to following a purposeful transformational journey in life, there is a process for doing so that can be learned to help soften the road. It requires being present to all that is happening, internally and externally, as we embrace our edge. It is then necessary for us to take in the experience, whatever it is, with loving acceptance…..Michael Lee
