I feel that each and every wound all of us ever experience brings us closer to evolution. When we undergo suffering we are guided to question. We are prompted to ask ourselves ‘how did I get here?’ If there is one thing that all of my life’s work has led me to, it is this, no life experience is in vain.
No search is meaningless. Every moment counts. Many a time I have felt as though all of my journeying was fruitless and would amount to nothing. I have witnessed and heard of so many who felt the same thing and decided to end their lives. Just yesterday I comforted a dear friend touched by the death of a young teenage boy. No words come close to touching on the sense of loss that comes with such an event. Many beings who exit this world have barely scratched the surface of what miraculous gifts lie inside them. Indeed we make mistakes and forget who we are intermittently. Yet perhaps, we can also be a veritable shining source of inspiration for souls to recognise themselves by. What counts most is that we turn up. We listen, not just to the sounds and to the possibilities, indeed these are invitations, but we also need to listen to all of life. To the vibrance that exists in each and every cell. To the truth that calls us out from behind our insecurities and comfort zones. From those places inside of us that have forgotten who we really are. We need to listen and respond to a world that needs us now more than ever. It is time to listen and act in a world crying out for our full embodied presence. For there are far too many who have forgotten and have lost their way. Far too many who have dimmed their light and opted for shallow half lived lives. Or have thrown away their lives because they failed to see the miracles inside them that had always been calling them home. Yet it is precisely the world’s pain living inside each of us that beckons us into transformation. Into change. It is exactly this depth of humanities aching that inspires us to truly be who we were born to be, to give our absolute all in service to all beings
