I am still learning how to grieve. I clearly recognize the parts of me that are compromised and failing. The loss of relationships, creative projects, a job or a longed for dream, I am loosing the person I was. However, my grieving takes me into the fertile space of the unknown. Sitting in this space allows for something new to be born. Perhaps a new aspect of myself, new found resources, new values, a new life pathway or a surprising new relationship. It takes such courage to resist filling my inner space with something known or predictable. It is a spiritual practice to nurture my capacity to love, live, believe, and celebrate without concrete proof, that something wonderful is going to happen that is just right for me.
Allowing my heart to take its course is not always easy.
