Destruction is not the enemy, but the gift

You’ve no doubt noticed by now that destruction is a recurring and uncontrollable part of life.

So is creation, but it’s destruction that gets the bad rap. Destruction is judged as a negative, an unnecessary, and it often gets mixed up with other energies like anger and unkindness. Bad, bad destruction!

Destruction is the bad boy of energies.

Good people don’t willingly destroy a perfectly good thing, and women are not supposed to destroy at all. After all, their bodies can create life, and aren’t they supposed to nurture everyone and make sure it All Stays Together? A woman who destroys is just acting like a man!

Besides all that, why would anyone want to add to the current climate of fear as everything continues to Fall Apart, everywhere on the planet? Won’t somebody please find the glue that sticks it back together!? Can’t we pass a new law or something? The good old days are gone forever!

It’s interesting that one person’s memory of the good old days can be another person’s memory of a nightmare.

We humans have a hard time letting go of the old in order to forge ahead, to create anew. So we resist and judge the destruction happening all around, rather than embrace it and consciously use it for our own ends. It’s difficult for us to see that the structures we create and put into place come complete with their own destruction, already built in. Nothing lasts forever, and when it is time for one thing to move on, it crumbles. Bye now!

It’s really best to let it go. Ask yourself, what have you learned by this? What are you holding onto, what are you afraid to destroy? Then ask, what are you free to create if you let this old thing go? If you don’t know, congratulations! You get to discover your next horizon, your next world. You do have a reason for being here now, at this time. You chose it, and you have what you need within you to create your next steps.

Here’s a short list of what’s up on the chopping block now:

Obeying authority unconsciously; unrestrained greed; unconsciousness about how we are poisoning our environment and our bodies; the disconnection between body and spirit; the disconnection from others in one’s community.

It’s taken a major worldwide financial crisis to shake and wake us up to some of these issues. This is nothing short of Evolution, or is it a Spiritual Revolution? Yes, there is destruction, and it’s not always easy or pretty, and it will continue. What is ending now no longer fits into where we are going next.

What have you been destroying?
