Wind of change

There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind. But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world; it’s the beginning of a new life.

We must be willing to let go of the life we have planned,
so as to accept the life that is waiting for us.

Joseph Campbell

 

Sometimes, life has a path. Outside forces act like the wind and tide directing us to new continents. Resistance is too hard a battle so reset your sail and explore a new world. It’s not the destination you had in mind, but who knows what you might experience and learn along the way?

Sometimes, life has no path. The air is breathless and still. The water swirls listlessly and without direction. In these times, it’s a comfort to think there’s a life waiting for us somewhere ahead. Surely you must eventually drift out of the doldrums into a new, exciting current. Assuming no proverbial bus, there IS a life ahead.

I no longer believe that life can be known in advance. It can be imagined or partly deduced from the present but life doesn’t exist until you get there.

My challenge right now is letting go of a powerful illusion described to me separately by two clairvoyants last year. That stuff was always hokum to me before. I’m not sure why I believed it this time. They came recommended. I was, myself, a pudding proof of their power! I was described to a friend before we even met. Their predictions have come true for my companions and mine seemed to be happening as well. The winds of change blew rightly within the timeframe just as described and then … but then … it evaporated. I rode the wind eagerly to discover the promised continent was a mirage.

So, now what?

Blow wind … flow water. I’m scanning the horizon for a new adventure.
