Birth is an exhilarating experience. Walking into a hospital room seconds after a child has been born, you can almost touch the emotion and power of the moment.
Rebirth is like that, too. Sitting in a powerful religious ceremony, standing alone atop a high hill, or walking in the footsteps of an ancient civilization, we can feel our hearts being changed as our spirit is given new birth. “What have I done to deserve this?” we whisper. And the universe whispers, “It’s to move you along your path. It’s to teach you to live.” And we emerge from our experience reborn.
Sometimes, it goes the other way, too. In a single moment, all that we know can be stripped away—the death of a loved one, a divorce, the loss of a job—and suddenly we’re left standing at the mercy of the universe. “Why did this happen? What did I do to deserve this?” we cry. And the universe answers, “It’s to move you along your path. It’s to teach you to live.” And once again, we rise from the ashes, reborn.
Surrender to the exhilarating moments of creation in your life, both the uplifting and the heartrending ones. Touch the emotion and power.
Trust that you’re being moved along your path. You’re learning how to live.
Let yourself be reborn.
God, please help me to accept all the life changing experiences that I may have. Help me to see the wonder in rebirth and to learn your lessons.
