Ruin Can Save Your Life

Ruin is a gift. Ruin is the road to transformation.

Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat Pray Love

Ain’t it though?

You must tear it all down sometimes when you’ve come to the end of the road, the end of the line, or the end of your rope.

And once it’s all torn down (or all fallen down around you) , you can begin again.

But you must first have the courage to take it all down and throw it all away (aka let it all go)… the courage to do “nothing” while this is happening… the courage to have “nothing” while this is happening… and you must have the courage to simply be while this is all happening, not having any idea who you are in this new space of “nothing.”

Remember, we are all “powerful beyond measure,” as Marianne Williamson said so beautifully. And  we are far more than we realize we are. Sometimes, we are far more than we are willing to be. So tearing down what you’ve built might be the path less traveled, and it can also be… the one most honored.

What could life be if we could see ruin as a perfect path? And not the sh%# that happened when we weren’t paying attention? What could life be if we welcomed ruin like an old friend, instead of resenting the day we first met it?

Then maybe we wouldn’t have to go crazy… or maybe we could be okay in the storm. This isn’t just the notion of a Silver Lining. But if it was, what would be wrong with that?

I consider myself fierce bliss, because I support everyone's revolution and evolution to theirs. It's not about happiness in a false front. It is about a connection to who you are that feels most authentic to you. The word, Authenticity, can be found in so many formulas these days, but authenticity is not a concept or something to be found only in someone else's tutelage. It cannot be given to someone. It must be sought out in the way only each of us can within ourselves. Each day, in my own life, I seek grace... and I find it. Bliss is a fount for us all. I'm here to share my story. If anyone finds themselves reflected in my journey, they are welcome to whatever benefit it brings. We all need a little embrace, and I'm here, embracing bliss so that you may embrace your own.
