Holy Brokenness

Uncertainty, doubt, confusion, loneliness, pain, grief, illness, loss, fear -- these are all doorways to the Divine, sacred thresholds through which we meet the soul, naked of pretense.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
Here our brokenness becomes the offering. ⁣
⠀⠀⁣
Here we meet fundamental reality, stripped of our projections and manipulations.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
Our culture does not train us in how to sit in the dark, how to let go, how to let things die.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
It does not teach us to sit with our human suffering, how to see the sacred seed in the dark body of flesh and experience.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
Instead, we're taught neurotic and perpetual forward movement, an obsessive clinging to the light. ⁣
⠀⠀⁣
We're taught to fear the dark, the stillness, the silence. We're taught to fear what we don't know. ⁣
⠀⠀⁣
We're taught we must always be wanting and becoming more and more and more.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
This cuts us off from the spiritual heart. ⁣
⠀⠀⁣
It leaves us anxious, exhausted, numbed-out, and superficial. ⁣
⠀⠀⁣
What would it be like to become LESS? To drop our need for more or better? To meet the moment in full surrender to what is?⁣
⠀⠀⁣
UN-BECOMING: The Heart of Holy Darkness, a four-week online course, offers an in-depth exploration into the heart of Holy Darkness, the Womb of the Mother. We start on January 23rd.

I'd love for you to join us.
