Secrets are shapeshifters that can paralyse us and mutate us beyond our true nature to the point that we become beyond recognition.
Hate, guilt, shame and fear mutate us into mere shadows, hollow shells, smiling outside, crying inside.
We lock ourselves in these cages, our visions occluded by the terrifying notion of being exposed.
When all along, there is a way out from this cage right before our eyes.
In meditation, we are given the keys to walk into the darkness within our souls.
Perhaps this is where you are given the choice － do you step through or not.
Perhaps this is why so many beings find meditation real hard work. It is so easy to not do it, to numb, to distract.
Because it may seem daunting, and sure, no one said it is easy.
When we walk into the darkness we have to be brave enough to face our own darkness
To meet the ghouls within so we can transform
So we can die and be born again
A phoenix rising from the ashes to bring light to the skies.
When that leap of faith scares the hell out of us, you know that is what you need to do to get out of the loop of fear and anxiety that has led us to inertia and inaction.
Because in the end, we don't know.
So often times, there are moments when we come to the precipice when we are asked to let go of the outcome and surrender, and trust that the Universe will deliver us their miracles. These are also moments when we are terrified to the gills.
🤍 When I was mired in anorexia, it took months to break down the walls I put up with my hypnotherapist.
🍃 When Tea and I met, it took me one whole month before I began to finally pursue the steps to answer my calling.
Now, I don't hesitate when I see an opportunity to make another leap when it feels aligned with my Dao.
I trust that if I stayed consistent with my vision I could walk the Dao for good.
Because at the end of the day, I truly don't know. I don't know what will happen if I took the leap. What I can do is to surrender the will to do and just be. And to be who your true self is, is the most beautiful thing you could ever gift to yourself and the world. 🕊🌊
