Sometimes we must surrender our own will for the greater good to come through. We are called to make ourselves vulnerable for a time, without answers or goals, sacrificing our plans to perceive a more mythic & wholistic calling. The word sacrifice is not, as we’ve been taught, synonymous with suffering, but comes from the root ‘to make sacred.’ If we can take a step outside of time, renouncing our ego’s urgency for progress, we have a chance at being danced, being sung into the greater song of things, being told like a story in its most pivotal pause of the arc.

  4. Thank you, yes, sometimes it is essential for our growth to make ourselves available to spirit, to be quiet and to listen, Sometimes for months. It has happened twice before and it’s happening to me again. As if i’m in a cocoon – every time Pluto aspects a planet in my natal chart. Transformation can not take place if we just continue our daily routines forever.
