the new within us is emerging, the old sometimes fights
back with a vengence to maintain its status quo. It can become an epic battle between the habituated, outdated familiar and the emergent, life-giving unfamiliar.
During the transition, being neither here nor there can be quite unnerving - and sometimes problem-causing. It brings up fears, doubts, insecurities...feelings of not being on solid ground. It also brings up the most amazing creative, generative opportunities if we choose to find and cultivate them, even amidst total discomfort.
It is not the time to seek comfort and direction by looking to the
past to inform the present. It is the time to call in the future to
inform the present...and see what is really ready to emerge. No matter
how deeply I know this, it is still requires all my presence and
commitment to it when I go through my own emergent transitions.
Follow the future by discerning what was from what is emerging; being present moment by moment to lean into the emergent impulses - and learning how to hear and feel them; and staying committed to the higher vision, not the returning limiting pattern. And...following that which fills you most with life - that's always a guide to a more creative expression of self, and a more generative emergent future.
