“It is the worst thing on earth, this truth about how little truth we know. I hate and resent it. And yet it is where new life rises from.” – Ann Lamott
It’s as if I’m standing on the edge of a precipice, staring over the edge.
What is this VOID I’m about to leap into?
What is this UNKNOWN vastness?
It feels like I’m about to abandon all I know about who I am for…something I know not.
It is this burning CURIOSITY, the compulsion to TRANSFORM, that urges me to leap out into the unknown.
Courage isn’t even a factor. I wish I could claim to be brave.
It is an unbreakable vow I have taken to explore the undiscovered territory, delve the hidden depths, unearth the treasures buried in the darkest corners of me.
What will I find? Who will I be?
What if I have been in the void all along?
What if I could learn to love it?
I take a breath and reassure myself that it’s okay if I pretend to “get it” once in a while, for variety or comic relief.
I am something new asking to be born.
So be it.
