One of my long-time teachers, James Yates says, “To make any life transition, you need three things: support, support, support.”
(And, I would add, since life is just a series of transitions, we all need support all the time.)
Support is all around us and in us. What’s curious is how often we don’t lean into the support that’s available.
The earth itself is always ready to take our full weight and hold us unconditionally. And yet, I find myself not relaxing into this steadfast support. Notice right now, are you?
I have internal resources that I can draw on, too. My physical strength (no matter how ill or injured I am), my very bones, my life force — until my dying breath are all there for me.
We are available to support each other. Know who you can go to for whatever support you need. Who can you go to when you need someone to listen? Who can you go to for advice? Who can you go to for inspiration? Who can you go to for laughter?
It doesn’t matter what you call it: the Universe, Nature, Spirit, God, the Mystery. That which is larger than we are is there to support you, too. Can you trust that this support is available? Can you be awake enough to feel it?
Earth support. Internal support. External support. Spirit support.
Tap into it.
