“By being born into this world and becoming an acceptable citizen in our community, we automatically have a storm raging within us. As much as we might like to deny the existence of this inner condition, as much as we may attempt to control and sedate it, it cannot be hidden. By gazing consciously across the planet we can see the outer casualties of this inner condition everywhere. It is the storm of duality. It is the war between authenticity and the inauthentic. It is the great divide between presence and pretence. It is the vast canyon of fear, anger, and grief between our adult identity and our child self. It is the vast chasm between thinking about living and feeling our life.
Our quest for peace is authentic when we enter our inner storm consciously and willingly. The doorway into it is within each of us., Entering our inner storm consciously assists us to grow in ways we cannot yet imagine. Its winds blast the fog of living in time from our life experience, and its torrental downpour washes us clean of our illusions.
Our inner sotrm is not an accident; it is an invitation and a deterrent. It is a deliberate rite of passage for our soul. It separates the wheat from the chaff. It is the bridge we cross to evolve from a time-based paradigm into present moment awareness. Those of us ready to grow willingly enter it. Those unwilling to leap into the full flow of life seek shelter from it.”
I’m feeling this one… -cp
