Caution to the Wind — and Sun
Careful now! Watch out! You’d better not.
How many times have we heard those words from well-meaning people who haven’t a clue about what it means to take a leap of faith?
The act of risk-taking itself is divine.
Your inner divine understanding, that Godly internal compass that leads you to the door of All That Is, may indeed ask you to risk everything.
And that may not be a bad thing at all.
What if you were to lose the familiar, only to experience what you didn’t yet know? Once you have that experience, it becomes the new familiar. Or at least it’s not as foreign as the idea that haunted your mind.
And often it’s not nearly as bad as you think it will be. In fact, a lot of the time life surprises us. And we begin to reveal that caution itself is a construct to keep us safe — and small.
And so it goes.
Throwing caution to the wind doesn’t come easily to everyone. Leaving the old behind to make room for the new requires a great deal of courage. But how sweet the reward when you realize that you never really lose anything at all.
Things simply change form.
I recently admitted to my dear friend how frightened I was to make a move from misery to the unknown, which might have brought me even more of the same. My friend assured me that trusting in ourselves is never a bad thing. It brings a great deal of goodness, healing and light into our lives.
So reach for the sun, my friends. When you look to the light, you won’t see shadows. What you will see, finally, is the reflection of your own inner shine.
It’s a sight worth seeing. Trust me on this one.
