As we have all been witnessing in the US with Covid and George Floyd's death and now the picking of Kamala Harris as the Democratic VP pick a lot of old structures are falling away and there is opening for the new. While the new is not quite here yet I believe that we are all getting a chance to tolerate things that we used to endure no more. We are realizing more and more what is important. We are elevating the right things and letting go of those which are no longer useful to us. We are adjusting to what is real for us and truly what we need to thrive.
While that is change it is truly important to recognize that change is like a metamorphosis. It takes time and effort to allow for the wrong things to go, heal from the differences coming, but most importantly transition (e.g. - allow for the rights things to show up).
As a result of all of this transition this time can feel hard, strained, no longer comfortable or easy, but let's not pretend that opening up, letting go of the easy ways of being nor being fully open and vulnerable to allow happier things to flow in is easy. In fact it takes being authentic, setting boundaries, speaking your truth and not allowing injustice to flow anymore. We all collectively have to take a stand against bad behavior, structures that impede, and/or self-imposed structures which do not allow for the development of true deep wise healthy movements forward.
What are you tolerating that you need to let go of? What do you need to allow in? How can you follow your truth?
