Coming Undone

April 12, 2011

Life is a complicated weaving of  tapestry. We bring in so many colors and textures of  the richness of our lives and we combine them with those of other beings. Those weaves can become very intricate and sometimes, some of the fibers don’t always mesh well with others.

Through this process of weaving, we learn that life is a delicate composition of likes, dislikes, emotional issues and baggage, life lessons, karmic binds and new opportunities. Now, as you can imagine, it isn’t always easy to “keep it all together.” As happens from time to time, the weaves we have woven tend to come undone. Coming undone is not necessarily a bad thing. If your weaves are fraying at the edges, it is a sign to you that things may need to come undone and naturally fall apart. This is an important life process. Once you allow the weaves to unwind, you can look at the very fibers you had once built so proudly and allow yourself the space to put them back together into another configuration – preferably a stronger weave and maybe tinged with some brighter colors and textures – all representing new growth and change.

The important thing to remember is that when your weaves come undone, don’t try to put them back together again into the same composition. That tapestry will never be the same again, you will never be able to replicate it nor should you even try. Things only fall apart in life when it is time to find a new way to put them back together. Happy weaving!

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
