It may seem counter-intuitive when you’re feeling stuck to go further down into your stuckness, but there is a huge difference between letting your darkness suck you under, and willingly making the sacred descent.
Going within is the only way out. There in the underworld of grief, loss and suffering, down in the muck of the very stuff our culture teaches us to reject, lives our redemption.
Sometimes all it takes to get life moving again, is giving those forgotten things a Hello. To acknowledge and honour their existence. To meet them with the tenderness which they have for so long been deprived.
