“Tell me the story about how the sun loved the moon so much he died every night to let her breathe.”
The life story of most begins with birth and culminates at the ceasing of life seen in death. However, our lives are not a single cycle of birth and death but rather we progress through these two events many times throughout our lives. Death is merely change, it is growth, and most of all it is essential. When we abandon an old way of thinking or being, we are in essence passing on and releasing ourselves from unneeded excess in order to rebirth. Navigating through these shifts of change does not always go unnoticed or unfelt. Growth, more often than not, demands that we experience the difficult absence of things we were not ready to let go of, imposing on us the arduous experience of regeneration. But like the death of day to allow for night, change is an inevitability with enormous potential to illuminate truth, love, and beauty in places that have yet to be exposed.
Are you resisting the unavoidable experience of change? If so, allow growth to bring you to new levels of regeneration.
