Are you held back by fear?
Do you dread feeling out of control?
Do you have difficulty letting go and allowing endings?
Do you long to feel safe?
Then please read on….
For those of us in the northern hemisphere, fall begins a six-month descent into seasonal darkness. But something bigger is happening these days-our whole world seems to be moving into dark and unprecedented territory. Just yesterday as I listened to the radio while I worked, I heard the hosts describe themselves as curled up in a fetal position on the studio floor just by the intensity of the daily news: Iraq dissolving into chaos; the Israeli-Palestinian conflict again erupting into war; the Ukrainian-Russian conflict continuing; an unprecedented and uncontained Ebola epidemic growing out of control; “war” breaking out in… where? Missouri?!! And let’s not forget, the environment is still doing something frighteningly unprecedented nearly every day.
This week I’ve had a handful of people whom I usually think of as positive and strong contact me for support through personal crises that are shaking them to their core.
Even though the alternative of living unconsciously, buffeted by unwanted circumstances, is a painful existence, it’s easy in its familiarity. It requires no bold choices. It takes courage to leave life as we know it and choose our own destiny by walking willingly into the symbolic underworld of fear, death, and the unknown. It’s a profoundly healing journey and one that rewards us with many previously hidden treasures of Self. Just as the ruling force of light in the spring urges us to reach for our dreams, fall’s darkness compels us to reach just as high, toward a pinnacle of perspective and wisdom. At that peak, we discover our true power and purpose, and cease to be defined by our fears.-Excerpt from the Miracles Course Fall season
