Something Has To Die

Something Has To Die

Poem

Something has to Die before something can be born.

Never has a quote been more true.

To live, fully live, we have to let ourselves die.

The death of an idea, a dream, a fear, a being or a passion creates the space to become wholeheartedly anew.

The alchemy of transformation lies within our ability to be vulnerable to all of life and death.

Not just the sweetness in life, but all the edges.

The rough edges somehow are the most profound teachers.

A death may not indicate finality, but an unearthing and a symbolic revisioning.  

To live again, let ourselves die completely.

~Dr. Deerheart
