Periods of deep hibernation, times when action, ANY action feels like more effort than we have within us. Do you know those times?
I go through it often, at times when I'm undergoing huge expansion, at times when I'm growing into a whole new being.
It's easy to think of these times as depressing.
It's easy to feel less-than because action is so freaking hard.
It's easy to fight yourself, demean yourself.
It's also easy to discount it as 'just a phase'
It's also easy to minimize and deem it as 'nothing'
It's also easy to pretend it's not really happening and keep on keeping on.
It can even be easy to accept it.
It can even be easy to have fun with it.
It can even be easy to not care if it passes or not, to stay present with it and allow your entire system to fully shut down.
Maybe it will go fast.
Maybe it will be slower than fuck.
And maybe, just maybe, you're in the process of rebirth...like the phoenix forever rising from the ashes to burn brightly and then fading so that you can burn again. Each time with a little more wisdom and grace.
