CD15 – Into the Void
Into the Void process is one of letting go. So much of our energy is invested in holding on to the past, beliefs, ideas, things people told us, hurts, betrayals, people, objects, you name it, it can be held onto. It isn’t until you feel into where your energy is being invested that we begin to get a sense of how much is being tied up and therefore not available for anything else – in particular, internal growth. The process begins with letting go of things and people that are easier to let go of, then we move deeper to the people and things that a part of us really does not want to let go of. For if it does it will be confronted with what is on the other side of the loss. Being able to let go can bring up feelings of loss and grief. Grief is the natural response to loss, we have something or someone we care about and then we don’t, grief is an adaptation process, one of learning how to live without such loved one or thing. Grief is healthy if it is of being mindful and living in the present moment while adapting to change at your own pace. Into the Void is about the courage to let go, to experience the feeling of freedom, imagine a boat built for sailing the oceans, yet it remains tethered to the shore, cutting the anchors that keep the boat in place allow it to do what it was designed to do. Into the void is a similar experience by slowly identifying the anchors and tethers that become a weight or a limitation are gently released in order for us to experience life with more freedom, more adaptability and willing and able to sail the seas of life without holding onto the ‘safety’ of the shore.
