Some of us may spend our lives waiting for approval from another person or from the world. But perhaps it is not their particular task to give it, perhaps we need to give ourselves blessing and approval. Perhaps instead of trying to get blessing or chasing after it, we may need to open ourselves to receive it from others, from life and the earth.
We might spend our life waiting to be ready. But perhaps we are supposed to do things when we are not quite ready. We may learn to do the things by going into the unknown and doing things we don’t yet know how to do. In order to be ‘born’ into a new stage of life we may need to move into unknowing and do the seemingly impossible.
The small self which thinks they needs to know what to do before they do it, and thinks they need approval to do it, may need to die and go under, so something more alive, larger and more connected can be born.
