I’m doing deep and uncomfortable dives over here, in my inner life, to ready myself for the leadership that’s calling me (splashes of this process are showing up on my Facebook page). And as I do so I’m struck by what feels to me like the cradling in this sketch.
There is a wholeness to this process we’re all in – this process of experiencing so much (ache, challenge, growing pains; joy, connection, victory, light) on internal and external fronts. I can’t prove it, and wouldn’t press the idea onto anyone who’s in a dark night.
But I feel it. I feel the weave of darkness and light being somehow inseparable. Somehow part of our healing and of some long, mysterious process of being set free.
