Life is always trying to initiate us

Life is always trying to initiate us. Right now how is life trying to initiate you?

It is the extremes of life that initiate us the most. And these are extreme times. Right now, how is life trying to initiate you?

Life is always trying to initiate us into even more of who we truly are. As individuals, as humanity, as a planet. How is life trying to initiate you?

In these times of solitude we are being called to go in. To deeply connect with our true inner nature and the interconnected true nature of all of life.

It is in extreme times like this that all that is not important falls away in an instant. Where things that are not necessary become clear. Where if we go in we are able to see our lives in a different light. And we are able to truly see things for the first time. To see all that doesn’t matter. To see all that we have taken for granted. To see that being alive on this planet is a great privilege.

So many of us fear change, yet change is the most certain thing in the world.

To be initiated means to cross a threshold, going from one state of being to another. Often it requires a period of time in the unknown. A period of uncertainty. Where we know that we cannot go back to the way things were, but it is not yet clear as to the way things will be.

And so our only choice is to walk through the fire of the unknown. We go into no man’s land in order to journey back into the world changed.

As we cross the threshold it is clear that things will never be the same again. We are asked to walk blindly into a whole new world and a whole new way of being. Forever changed. Life is always trying to initiate us, but few people accept the initiation. It is the extremes of life that initiate us the most. Where we are given the opportunity to crown ourselves. But we must leave behind all that we know to journey into the kingdom that lies deep within.

Life is always trying to initiate us. Right now, how is life trying to initiate you?
