The fire shines bright in our hearts this week. We are strong, capable, ready for action. We know what we want to do, we know how we want to do it, and we are lit up from the inside out.
But of course it isn't that easy.
Self sabotage is so subtle, as simple as painting a self-portrait with a wounded arm, turning skillful lines to careless strokes. As simple as charging into battle still scarred from last year's war. We aren't fully healed, badly as we want to be. Even as we run along, the limp persists in our stride.
This week invites us to pause internally, to try to see ourselves and our pains from another perspective. To turn it all around and up to the light. To ask what was healed by becoming broken. To marvel at how successfully we failed. To count the gains as we tally the losses. To embrace what needs to be forgiven and bury what must die. There are no right or wrong answers, for in the end everything is useful to the fire. We just need to get clear on what goes where. On which stories will be printed in our book of life. The ink is nearly dry on this chapter.
