Inside the symptom

When you are hooked in an avalanche of emotion and spiraling down the rabbit hole of ruminative thinking, a doorway appears.

From the perspective of wholeness, to be activated is a special form of grace. Not the sort of grace that is flowing, peaceful, and calm, but the kind that is wrathful, fierce, and relentlessly reorganizing.

At times, the emissaries of the dark will surge to resume their rightful place in the inner ecology of the heart. They contain light, but it is a light that is not understood in a world that has forgotten. Like a black sun, or a rose with poisonous thorns.

What appears as obstacle is revealed as path. Inside the symptom the cure is hidden.

My new book – The Path Is Everywhere: Uncovering the Jewels Hidden Within You – is now available 

My next event will be a five-day retreat, The Place the Light Enters, with Jeff Foster, April 4-9 at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, CO.
