The Art of Beginning Again is Calling
What if we see the art of beginning as timeless as the stars? Life crafts us not only for stumbles and climbs but also for fiery trials that forge us anew. Imagine embracing our inherent capacity to begin again, to engage in the sacred art of beginning.
Do we dare connect with people who ignite our inner spark of wonder, not chaos? Thriving in life’s dance hinges on grounding ourselves, releasing limiting beliefs, and welcoming potential experiences. This often involves distancing ourselves from any person or practice that drains our energy without nourishing us. We do so by releasing the belief that this is how a relationship, job or life should be,
Become aware of your energy depletion and the price of becoming solace for people on unhealthy paths, who might want you to be part of a drama or soap opera that has run its course. Is the experience energizing or depleting? Can we be the seven year old who asks why? and why again.
Do we choose to turn our backs on closed doors, those gateways to past realities that no longer serve us? It’s as if a switch has been flipped, amplifying our sense of self-worth and self-value. Pushing against barriers is no longer our path; it disrupts our flow, trapping us in a cycle of control and compliance.
What is truly meant for us will find its way. By acknowledging what holds real value in our lives, we move away from competition and towards co-creation with genuine, action-driven souls who energize. On this path, we pause our emotional narratives, adopting a fresh perspective, detached from what once was. New experiences beckon us to live at the crossroads of safety and surprise, where creativity thrives.
This is not just about change; it’s a call to wholeness, balance, and integration in a world fragmented and off-kilter. It’s about shedding the remnants of victimhood, leaving behind the scars that once defined us.
No Longer Waiting for Our Ducks to Be in A Row
Begin. Perfection is a myth; there’s no such thing as having everything perfectly aligned before we start.
New beginnings might seem daunting, like venturing alone into the unknown. Yet, every beginning is rich with unseen opportunity. To shy away from starting is to deny ourselves profound self-care. Our existence hinges on the bravery of beginning.
The well-trodden paths and ancient practices, though once potent, are reaching their limits for many. We seek practices and perspectives in harmony with our era, blending timeless wisdom with contemporary understanding.
The art of beginning challenges us to shape our lives. It requires courage and tenderness, as beginnings expose both our strength and vulnerability like nothing else. And is about knowing our enough.
Growth demands openness to the new and the different, despite our inherent desire for comfort and predictability. Life’s thresholds can be subtle or monumental, from a look that sparks a new relationship to life-altering events. These moments, whether whispered or thunderous, invite us to leave behind what was and step into a healthier, more balanced reality.
As January 2024 has almost been entirely experienced, the path is calling us to practice the art of beginning in our own way.
“We are healed from suffering only by experiencing it to the full. Illness is the doctor to whom we pay most heed; to kindness, to knowledge, we make promise only; pain we obey. The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.”―Marcel Proust
