When Things Fall Apart

Mama Chia stopped again and looked at me, “In the darkest, most chaotic times–when things fall apart–such times often mark quickening as your mind readies itself to make a leap. When you feel like you’re going nowhere, stagnating, even slipping backward–your soul is only backing up to get a running start.” ~Sacred Journey of the Peaceful Warrior, Dan Millman

I can identify with this quote. I’ve been there. Actually, I am in one of those periods as we speak. Who hasn’t been? During those times, when one thing after another goes awry, it seems like we’ve been cursed (or perhaps that’s just if you are New Orleans born and bred). We stress, fret, and agonize, wondering when the next shoe will drop, knowing that we are making the situation worse, but helpless to stop. What a relief to know that there may be a reason for this madness, that it may serve a purpose, but in the end, the quote is just a reminder of what we already know, this too shall pass and all will be well.


Blessings and Namaste, lydia marie
