And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom. ~ Anais Nin
Being our true self takes tremendous risk and courage. By being our self we have to stand alone in our power without any fears or doubts. We have to have the audacity to trust ourselves.
“The place where nothing works is where everything works.” ~ Adyashanti
When the spiritual two-by-four hits us over the head, it’s time to wake up.
It’s a Divine wake up call for us to transform and heal our life.
Spiritual awakening never comes at a convenient time in life. It always comes at the most inconvenient and most inappropriate time. Life does not wait for us when she wants to wake us up. When she hits us over the head we have no choice but to wake up. Sometimes we get blind sided and don’t know what hit us, but this is the only way she can get our attention. Something drastic has to happen.
It comes in many forms, genres, and delightful packages. It’s like the like the temptress Delilah who seduced Samson from his power. It may present itself in beautiful and alluring packages, shiny, full of glitter and enchantment. An exciting phone call, lunch with a friend, or the need to go attend to some personal drama.
