new ways forward

giving up old ways of being
that seem to not serve anymore
is very difficult
until new ways are found
and cultivated
and practiced

our healing work within our selves
and “the world”
is more potent
when our energies are invested in practicing and fostering and cultivating
new ways forward
and not in tearing down and abandoning old ways

Buckminster Fuller said
“You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.”

May we go forward with this intention
in our own lives
and may the old habits and behaviors and patterns that keep us in an existing reality
fall away
not through force
but by thanking them for getting us this far
and blessing them on their way
as we fill the spaces in our selves that they occupy with new, beautiful growth
and as we grow more capable of holding space for our own selves
our own processes
our own vastness
with compassion
patience
and simplicity

it starts here
in the center
the source
is within
