Appropriate Deaths

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine.

There’s wealth in endings.

I can see everything I am leaving behind before I step through the door into the next room – all the old comforts. But today is the day to turn fully toward the new, the day to step into the new. I don’t know what is on the other side of this door, but I do know that The Gift Must Move, that wealth is mobile, that abundance doesn’t stagnate. I am a facet of the Universe and thus, I am wealth and abundance, and I too must keep moving to keep the energy flowing.

I must trust enough to step through death into growth.

The Gifts of Autumn

In retrospect, I can see in my own life what I could not see at the time: how the job I lost helped me find work I needed to do, how the “road closed” sign turned me toward terrain I needed to travel, how losses that felt irredeemable forced me to discern meanings I needed to know. On the surface it seemed that life was lessening, but silently and lavishly the seeds of new life were always being sown. ~ Parker J. Palmer, Autumn: To Cohere in Mysterious Unity
