pagan art journaling {week 33}

this week's prompt: growth


What prompts growth in your world? How do you react to change? 


This past year has been a big year of change and growth in my world, spiritually, emotionally, career wise, etc, etc. It's been a year of evolution. But as I recently mentioned, the shit sort of hit the fan, just as I was starting to feel more at peace with where things were about to go in my life. A year of meditation and almost daily practice (I know, I can hardly believe it myself sometimes... but it's been a struggle, I won't deny it) have brought about some interesting self-realizations and questions.

But just as I was starting to feel like things were settling in and becoming clearer... utter chaos! But then, because life is like that, I came across this amazing Tibetan Buddhist idea that everything goes wrong in order to get you focusing on something else and out of the way in order for something great to be born in your life. And I just loved that thought. What a beautiful way of thinking about the destruction of the tower the creates fertile new ground for growth.

  1. I agree. Sometimes when the tower is falling on your head, it is hard to see.

  2. @dana, isn't it though? But when the dust settles it can be surprising to see what emerges.
