When we become totally disillusioned
When hope is dissolving
When the outer takes the complete opposite route to all that feels humane and right
When the world disappoints us and breaks our heart
and it all seems dark and heartless and meaningless and pointless...
This is such an unexpectedly beautiful place to be, if you are patient enough.
So don't reach for the old hope you had.
Don't sugarcoat it with false hope, as tempting as that can be.
Something new is being born.
Something very precious.
This is the turning point. A place where you have no choice but to ask deeper questions.
What if the world never comes to peace?
What if ‘they’ never change?
What is the purpose of it all?
Why am I here?
(find your own genuine question, it’s already there)
Maybe now you can start to head towards the true source of Peace. True source of Meaning, of Humanity, Wholeness and Love.
Maybe now you will give up.
Give up waiting for someone to come be the hero.
Give up spending tons of energy trying to be someone else’s hero.
Give up hoping the world will reflect something beautiful back to you (it will, but only at the right time).
The world, other people, they are not here to fulfill our dreams and hopes. They do not exist to make us happy and conform to our expectations.
Well, not in the way we have been taught.
They exist to help us learn and evolve.
And we need both, the light and the dark.
And we know which one we need to work with because that is what is showing up.
All that we long for, even if we find it 'out there', unless it also sparks an Inner Revolution, it won't really satisfy for the long haul.
So don’t be so quick to dis your disillusionment.
