If This is All There Is…

As we get older, we are often reminded of our mortality, our fragility, and the inevitable end of this journey.

As relationships, friends, family members, and memories fade and fall away, we quietly posit and define chapter headings to our story. Every milestone initiates a recapitulation, as we inevitably, and perhaps unexpectedly, check in with ourselves. Are we living our real and true mission? Is this all there is to life? How much time do we have left?

The Threat Is Enough

Most of the things we fear will happen are entirely products of our minds and imagination. Symptoms of our accumulated patterning, programming and conditioning make for fertile soil within which our minds can quickly and repeatedly generate worry, fear and stress. Unfortunately, the world around us (that is, the unnatural, man-made world) has a bent toward reminding us perpetually about the threats that exist to our health and safety, our money and security, our planet, our rights and freedoms, and more.

The threat is enough. Given these conditions, the mere suggestion of terrible futures and outcomes there could be, for many, is enough to trigger latent energies, traumas and unexamined toxic beliefs that continually redirect, fragment and consume our time and energy on a daily basis.
