Without the light that shines out of the darkness, the journey will always be hidden in the shadows
Your sadness, your vulnerability, and your longing—these guests have not come into your experience so that they can be healed, transformed, changed, or transcended. They are not problems which need fixing or more evidence of your failure and essential unworthiness. They have come to make love with you, and to reveal their nature as luminous path, weaving and interpenetrating your tenderness with everything around you.
There is so much aliveness in your hopelessness if you will turn toward it and mine the wisdom it offers. You have been taught that hope is required and that it is a true “spiritual” quality which is necessary to open your heart to this world. But the wild reality of love will never conform to your hopes and fears.
See that the beloved is providing a portal into her world in every moment—wielding her grace-tools of sweet and fierce grace to reveal your wholeness as the doorway into her heart. Without the light that shines out of the darkness, the journey will always be hidden in the shadows.
