.process of change.

Whenever change greets me there is a heaviness that sets in - a lethargy in my bones - a fear - a resistance. I'm desperately holding onto the shore line as the tide tries to pull me out into the newness. I exhaust myself holding - grabbing - slipping...until maybe I realize or finally deplete myself and I loosen my grip - swept out by the waves - carried into the newness.

There is a still fear but also that peace that come from surrender. That peace of acceptance. I realize it's fine - i'm fine - where i am suppose to be - lighter - open to what is to come.

How do you feel change? How do you decide to let go (surrender)? What do I  always choose fear when peace always finds me?

Change is here again. I rode my bike to find some peace - to take time to say THANK YOU. To say goodbye to what has been and I discovered this magical place.

But Pema always says it best,

"Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may be just the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don't know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don't know."

I'm also in a changing season…. molting into my next glorious place, state, season…. it takes courage to leap, fly and say goodbye to the old.

I just saw this recently "Let go, or you will be dragged." -Zen
