Arising from flames or returning to ashes?
It’s a cycle. Never ending. We are in a constant state of wounding ourselves—emotionally, physically, spiritually—from one source or another and then healing ourselves. Again and again.
Hurting and healing. We are in a perpetual state of repair, of maintenance, of growth of recovery — that’s our cycle of life. From neglect to nurture. From unloved to love. From absent-minded to whole-hearted.
We are in a constant state of being born or dying. Of hurting and healing. Of ascension or decadence. Of creation or destruction.
We are never done. Until we are. And then we don’t need a body any longer. And so it goes until we expire. Until then we are refreshing that which spoils. Replenishing the shelves. Extending our virtual shelf life.
We are in a constant state of being born or dying. Of hurting and healing. Of ascension or decadence. Of creation or destruction. And so it is with the Universe.
Welcome. Jump on in. The bathwater’s luke. Soon to run cold. But it can—and will—be heating up again. Once we add some flames to the fire. Some coals to the blaze. Stoke the ashes from which the Phoenix has just arisen.
Be patient with this magical creature — with you, me, the Phoenix. Give it just a sec. It was ashes only moments ago. It’s just getting warmed up.
