Just as soil can be prepped in anticipation of a beautiful garden, consciousness transformation can be nurtured and cultivated. By fostering curiosity, creativity, and introspection in your life, you can open yourself to expanded dimensions of your being. These are ways of being, within the everyday circumstances of your environment, that can help you increase the transformative potential of your experiences- and allow any transformative experiences that come to take hold more easily and firmly, with less resistance or trauma. Once you’ve prepared the ground and a seed of transformation has been planted, you begin the growth cycle. What sustains you on the transformative path? What keeps you moving forward when the terrain seems impassable, or when you’re tempted to settle for a familiar and comfortable stopping point that’s less than your full potential?……Marilyn Mandala Schlitz
what we cling to can be surprising when seen with honesty…..may we honor the stories and welcome them in the circle of our lives…..
Another life, as if, all along, you had thought the end point
might be a city with golden towers, and cheering crowds,
and turning the corner at what you thought was the end
of the road, you found just a simple reflection,
and a clear revelation beneath the face looking back
and beneath it another invitation, all in one glimpse:
like a person or a place you had sought forever,
like a bold field of freedom that beckoned you beyond;
like another life, and the road – the road still stretching on.
As you start to walk on the way, the way appears.
