If you are feeling out of sorts right now, you aren’t alone. The old skin is being shed. Nothing makes sense. Old patterns don’t serve, old habits don’t help. This is a time of new growth. This is not a time of throwing away all your old things and ways. Instead, it is a time of seeing them in a new way. It is a time of opening up and questioning and being like a child.
A child learns how to walk in part by watching other people. But also the child learns how to walk by just doing it. The child feels things out step by step. She checks her balance and she examines it. She figures out if this step works or if it throws her off-balance and makes her fall. This is the same with us. We have to feel everything out.
Everything that we took for granted is no more. It doesn’t help and it doesn’t serve. This is a whole new life and a whole new way of being. Take nothing for granted. In fact take nothing at all. Nothing is probably the best thing you can have with you right now.
If you keep on doing things the old way you’re going to get the same old results, and you’ll be left behind. You’ll be wondering what happened and why is everybody else going so far ahead and why you are so lost.
It is just like Abraham in the desert. He had a whole new way of doing things and he couldn’t do them the old way. It is just like the new Christians. They had a whole new way of doing things and they couldn’t do them the old way. The old ways have to be reassessed and things that have been discarded have to be looked at again.
It may be time to do an old thing in a new way. It may be time to do a new thing in an old way. It may be time to be the way. It is a time of feeling things out and trusting the process. It is a time of holding on loosely. It is also a time of not letting go. You may feel like doing something new and unexpected. Go with that feeling. Don’t worry about doing it wrong, or looking up how to do it. Feel it out, and you’ll know what to do. We are the ones we have been waiting for. Now is a beautiful time to be alive.
