There is a process to this that many people don’t like. It’s the breaking of a thing, so it can be rebuilt.
Most people reject this process. They don’t see the value in it, they only see the fear – that which they don’t know.
The breaking can be violent and awful to witness and feel. And it often is. It feels unsafe. People feel vulnerable.
But the true vulnerability lies in the human that refuses to budge – who doesn’t allow space within them to see that there is a spark being created by every act of destruction.
The energy within the calling out, the naming of that which needs to be changed is incredibly powerful. It can carry us through the times when we don’t know the answer; when we don’t know what will happen. And all the fear that comes along with that experience.
Within the scope of the unknown is the fear of abandonment. If we don’t know, how can we create a sense of home – of safety – within the context of all that remains unclear to us? How can we live there?
The answer: create a sense of home within ourselves.
It’s within the remembering of the spark that exists and is created through the violent assertion of all that can no longer live in the way it’s always lived, that we garner our fuel and support. It is the source upon which all of our strength can be accessed.
We needn’t run away in fear or lash out in response to the unknown. We must only remember the spark that ignites and lights up all that is required, to do what it is we need to do, to evolve.
