Without the strength to endure the crisis, one will not see the opportunity within. It is within the process of endurance that opportunity reveals itself.
Today it is important to remind yourself that all endings, however painful, also mark the beginning of a new phase. Between ending and beginning, we have the liminal phase, the world between worlds, the doorway, the place of stillness. Today be aware that although endings may be all around you, that their function is to bring you into a place of knowledge and awareness, that you would not ordinarily have had. Painful as they may be, these processes serve to bring awareness into the human psyche, to challenge us to dig deeper, to face that which we fear, and to grow stronger in the process. If there are decisions that you are battling with today, take time out to sit with them, and look at the issues that you face. What are you afraid of losing? what is of real value here? are you looking at the real issues, or are you playing with shadows?. Examining what is actually going on, may help you in the search for understanding, as you may recognise that the path that you need to follow is perhaps so obvious that you have missed it!
