“Darkness is not a pejorative thing.” ~Naomi Watts
I just had this thought:
Our moment of hubris, our fall from grace, is not just an ending but a perfect beginning.
It is the moment we realize the blessing and curse of our own mortality and this end of innocence brings us to the truth of who we really are and to a much deeper experience of life (if we allow it).
I am beginning to see that this entire journey was written long ago. It is my response to and awareness of it that brings grace.
Shame wilts the spirit. Acceptance, forgiveness and mindfulness nourish it.
I know what I am choosing.
