|SEED BODY. Growing into the new self. (art by Hallelujah Truth)|
Honor the OLD.
The emergent BEING is silver
The past SELF gold.
Hallelujah for ART, TIME, and opportunities to SHED and GROW! As I celebrated my 57th birthday yesterday, I drew this image of myself setting forth into a new sphere of being (see below)!
I am proclaiming the wisdom of my own authority. As I settle into the prime of my life, I am discovering that there are times to depart the old self--to shed it somewhat like a snake skin. That bodyspirit which emerges from the shed skin is, in fact, new!
RATIONALE for SHEDDING the OLD
Why continue to make repairs to an old self/bodyspirit when what is needed is a new model? Some times, it makes much more sense to step out of the constraints of who you once were than hovering over all the negative consequences of a used-up-out-dated-YOU.
|GROWING INTO THE NEXT SPHERE OF BEING. (art by Hallelujah Truth)|
As I see myself, Hallelujah Truth shedding the skin of the old self and growing into the next sphere of bodyspirit being, I ask myself this very important question: What am I to do?
Where is the instruction manual for this process of "growing" the seed body as it shoots roots into my old existence and springs up out of my head into the next world? I have some answers, rather ideas....
ONE. Celebrating! Time for a ritual! Candles! Dances! Friends! Burning incense! Probably a seed planting ritual and re-potting old beloved plants!
TWO. Talking to my mentors, those beloved ones in my life who have experienced this cyclical human process of becoming and evolving.
THREE. Drawing images after visualizing the new emergent self.
FOUR. Taking new actions that completely surprise me by their novelty.
Dear Pilgrims! I am excited! I am ready to take action easefully and joyfully! Will you join me?
