Each and every one of us is called toward Life, beckoned to allow the shining of our true nature out in the world. Astrologically, this essence is the Sun in our chart, indicating our innate Being and Purpose. The process of ego self-undoing is the awakening to what we are not, and what we can be, and propels us on the Hero’s Journey.
Destined to take our rightful place in the vast Universe and to truly know ourSelf, we have dreams for our future, meet significant people, undergo peak experiences, face fears, and are forced to adapt, change, and let go. Life is a series of tests that challenge the stories we once believed and to discover our own value, self-worth, and place in the world.
On this path toward our inevitable future we must do our best with what we have, watch for miracles that happen all around us, dream big for ourself and others, run if we need to be safe, and stop when we don’t. The secret is to never take our eyes off the destination; to explore, travel, and expand, be our brother’s keeper, help ourself, ask for help, and even pray, but always keep our promises to ourself and others. Work together, serve, make peace, but don’t be afraid.
The key is to understand that Death is a part of Life: to walk freely into the Unknown and be the captain of our own ship. Willingly put the past behind you, see beauty everywhere, and be right here where Love and Hope reside. Just keep moving.
