“Uncertainty is the only certainty
there is, and knowing how to live
with insecurity, is the only security.”
~ John Allen Paulos
I rarely feature guest posts at Sophia’s Children, if only because I tend to mention and link to inspired insights from kindred spirits pretty frequently.
Before I introduce Robyn’s guest post, though, I mention this:
I’ve been hearing from a new wave of people in the throes of kundalini (Lifeforce) or spiritual awakening, Dark Night, and newly heightened or expanded empathic sensitivity, and looking for quality guidance and resources amidst a deluge of marginal-quality (and sometimes downright concerning) stuff. The energies of transformation continue to be intense.
Synchronously, I’ve continued to work with individual clients as they navigate those transformation journeys, and I’ve been marinating a new series of posts on just those issues. So stay tuned for more posts for empaths and sensitives, those experiencing spiritual and/or kundalini awakening, and those — as a result of either of the afore-mentioned — who are swimming in the waters of big change and radical transformation. (Feel free to email in the meanwhile.)
After 15-plus years of experiencing and integrating these things in all of their wonder and horror, I feel strongly about holding the lantern, leaving shiny breadcrumbs, and being an Anam Cara and mentor for others traveling that particular ‘Persephone Path’).
And now, the intro to Robyn’s guest post I promised! Really, it’s a ‘part guest-post and part mention-and-link’ to Ambivalence as a Spiritual Path – a musing from kindred-spirit Robyn Lark Wakefield of Urban Goddess.
I appreciate Robyn’s invitation to reflect on ambivalence through a lens other than our typical Puritanically-influenced conditioning. What if ambivalence, among other similar states, was actually an important facet of wholeness and wellbeing? What if ambivalence is the equivalent of a rich field in which we might find new inspiration and insights growing?
In Ambivalence as a Spiritual Path, Robyn writes,
“I’ve no fear of hard landings, I’ve had my share. And if they don’t break us, they can change our lives — for the better. We’ve got to take the blinders off and become willing participants of reality. The United States is home to less than five percent of the global population, and yet it uses a quarter of the world’s fossil fuel resources. Mother Earth is a feisty…” Continue reading Robyn’s post here.
I’ll be back very soon with more juicy musings, shiny breadcrumbs, and lantern-lighting on the aforementioned themes (they’re in there, incubating and percolating and readying themselves for sharing).
