Leaving The Nest Can Mean Flying Towards Your Life
Leaving Your Nest – What does this mean for you? I know that as I become more awake that I see and feel more than ever. It can be heart warming or heart wrenching. But as Pema Chodron states in her weekly note, “Leaving The Nest”, it can be a good thing to set yourself free so that you can feel and BE in your life. Peace and light to all.
LEAVING THE NEST
All too frequently we relate like timid birds who don’t dare to leave the nest. Here we sit in a nest that’s getting pretty smelly and that hasn’t served its function for a very long time. No one is arriving to feed us. No one is protecting us and keeping us warm. And yet we keep hoping mother bird will arrive.
We could do ourselves the ultimate favor and finally get out of that nest. That this takes courage is obvious. That we could use some helpful hints is also clear. We may doubt that we’re up to being a warrior-in-training. But we can ask ourselves this question: “Do I prefer to grow up and relate to life directly, or do I choose to live and die in fear?”
