One must still have chaos in oneself to be
able to give birth to a dancing star.
~ Friedrich Nietzsche
It’s no secret that we live in turbulent times.
Many people feel as if their entire life is circling the drain and spinning into chaos.
I promise, while this seems counterintuitive, chaos is your friend.
Yes, you read that right.
It’s the darkness that brings forth greater light.
I can also almost bet you don’t like this idea; and yet it’s true, nonetheless.
Not liking something doesn’t make it any less true.
Regardless of how it may feel, chaos is your friend.
Chaos and darkness give birth to new life and greater light.
When you understand this concept, it’s a complete life-changing awareness and illumination.
Check your own life experience.
At what times in your life have you learned the most?
When have you grown the most?
What situations, more-often-than-not, have driven you to seek new answers and greater opportunities?
It’s the darkest nights that birth the brightest dawns.
Now again, while this might not be popular. Pay attention to your life and you, like me, will find it to be true.
You see, the unfortunate truth is that most of us never make a significant change in our life until we experience enough pain.
It doesn’t have to be this way, but it’s most often the case that most of us will do more to avoid pain then we’ll do to gain pleasure.
Most often we will do way more to avoid pain then we’ll do to gain pleasure.
For this reason, pain is the mother of all growth.
But when this principle is understood then you’ll realize that chaos is the great creator.
Darkness drives you toward the light.
When you reach a mental/emotional state of “enough already” then you’ll do whatever it takes to change, grow and transform.
Growth and transformation are the gift of darkness and chaos to those truly aware.
The unaware and uninitiated fear, resist and avoid this darkness and chaos, and thereby ironically drive themselves more deeply into the very thing they wish to avoid.
I’m curious, what are you doing with your gift in these turbulent times?
