Many Little Deaths

Found paper

You will experience many little deaths as you let go of what you don’t need to become who you truly are. This can’t be helped.

The little deaths can be avoided but the cost is your life. “For whoever would save his life will lose it…” This can’t be helped. It is foundational to the universe.

Each thing you let go of, each little death will require mourning. In time the mourning will turn to joy, but don’t rush things. Take each in turn.

Hold yourself with compassion when you flench or turn away or lose heart.

Hold yourself with compassion as you gather the courage to die a little.

Hold yourself with compassion as you mourn each little death.

Hold yourself with compassion as you find new joy and breathe new life.

Hold yourself with compassion.
