I’ve had a number of conversations recently with people who are aware that life as we have known it is changing.  Our long-standing institutions like banking, finance, energy acquisition, government programs, disease care, and others who are unwilling or unable to bend with the winds of change are cracking. If you’re also going through a divorce at this time, these global changes are even harder. It makes letting go even harder. Sometimes we don’t know what to let of.

New Hope

And yet within all of it there is also rising hope…. Something new is taking form; new possibilities are emerging.  Just as a prescribed burn in an overgrown forest consumes the chaff making way for new growth so are we beginning to see buds of new life and new ways of doing things.  You will too. Through the blackened ash comes vibrant green life with renewed energy.

Any ending, including the life you’ve known that is now ending in divorce or our tired institutions, signals the beginning of a transition.  In transition everything is upside down, kittywompus, and up for grabs.  Stability vanishes.  Transition begs the question, “What is it time for me to let go of?”  Not everything from today will make it into your new future, or our new future as a society, either.

Awakening

Look up and out and you will see the awakening taking place around us.  In the spirit of letting go, change, forgiveness, and creating something new, I want to share this video with you.  It came to me from 2 different sources within a day of each other.  Knock knock.  Pay attention, Jeannine.  I was very moved by it.  Not only is the message healing for women to hear but  men can be healed also by speaking from genuine compassion, self-love, and reaching out for connection.   Letting go of old behaviors between men and women and making room for the new possibilities that we will create together. I doubt I am the only one moved by this video.  I would love to hear your thoughts.
