Life is alchemical

Nature loves courage. You make the commitment, and nature will respond to that commitment by removing impossible obstacles. Dream the impossible dream and the world will not grind you under, it will lift you up. This is the trick. This is what all these philosophers who really counted, who really touched their alchemical gold, this is what they understood. This is the shamanic dance in the waterfall. This is how magic is done. By hurling yourself into the abyss and discovering it’s a feather bed. Terence McKenna

There are so many ways of awakening, or tuning in, or whatever we call it – committing to being open to some creative life force that is within us all – a way of being that is looking out wide-eyed through the curtain of our eyelashes at life and spotting the possibilities, trusting the flow, leaning into the magic, into the alchemy of life that allows us to feel its deep mystery, the call of the divine. It is when we open to this feeling that we can trust and hurl ourselves into the abyss – and experience the soft landing – the open arms that await us when we let go of control and allow life to happen for us.

This is real living and it may well be exquisitely painful sometimes but it is also exquisitely joyful. Because we feel the mystery of life – the alchemy of our souls. Synchronicities happen, serendipity is our soundtrack, we feel the soft velvet touch of presence caressing our dreams and whispering Yes.
