As the new within us is emerging, the old sometimes fights back with a vengeance 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 It can become an epic battle between the habituated, outdated familiar and the emergent, life-giving unfamiliar.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 bring 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 them, even amidst the discomfort. That 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...and learning to embrace the creative space in between here and there. #creativeemergence
