This is beautiful, wise, needed. A true gem.
Bless us all on our journeys.
I have tried both ways. I have gone back to sleep in order to resist the forces of change. And I have stayed awake and been broken open. Both ways are difficult, but one brings with it the gift of a lifetime. If we can stay awake when our lives are changing, secrets will be revealed to us - secrets about ourselves, about the nature of life, and about the eternal source of happiness and peace that is always available, always renewable, already within us.
(I also found this beautiful quote in Chuck Collins'
latest book, Born on Third Base.)
