BEST of PONDER on THIS for Wednesday, December 26th, 2012 by Shakti Gawain in THE PATH OF TRANSFORMATION

“Healing crises are always uncomfortable and can often be terrifying and painful. It can feel as if our world is in danger of coming to an end. It can seem as if our lives are falling apart. We may see disaster and doom everywhere. Oftentimes we blame ourselves and fell that we’ve done something horribly wrong, or that we are terribly lacking.

In fact, we have simply outgrown an old form, an old way of relating to the world. An old way of being is dissolving, making way for a new, more expanded and more conscious way. So we may lose a job or a relationship because it is too limiting; it would not allow us to expand in the direction we need to go. We may lose a loved one through death because both our souls are moving onto new levels, one of us continuing in the physical body, the other passing into a non-physical reality. We may contract a serious illness in order to confront ourselves with the necessity for change.

If you have ever gone through crises such as these, and have taken the opportunity to grow from them, you can probably recognize, in retrospect, how vitally important the experience was.”
