There can be bad weather and winds outside and similar storms and movement in our inner life. It is good to see them in a similar way: simply as stuff “passing through”. Sometimes, however, they can shake us out of our habitual patterns and bring us back to what is important.
When changewinds swirl through our lives, they often call us to undertake a new passage of the spiritual journey: that of confronting the lost and counterfeit places within us and releasing our deeper, innermost self – our true selves. They call us to come home to ourselves, to become who we really are.
Sue Monk Kidd, When the Heart Waits
