We all face major challenges in our lives: the loss of a job, a broken relationship, an illness, death of a loved one. And these circumstances could easily “bury” us in despair. Negative and painful thinking can become overpowering, creating a downward spiral 🌪 that pulls us ever deeper into feelings of hopelessness. 👉🏽 YET there is a difference between being “buried” and being “planted.” That difference boils down to the EXPECTATION of what happens next. —————————————————
When you put a seed 🌱 in the ground, you don't say, 'I'm burying the seed.' 👉🏽 You say, 'I'm PLANTING the seed.' The difference is that when you plant a seed, you EXPECT to see it rise again and come back to life. ————————————————-
When you go through tough times, you may feel like you've been buried, but the fact is, you've been PLANTED 🌱. That means GROWTH is in progress 🍃🌱🌿🌳. You’re coming back BETTER and STRONGER. You’re enlightened. ———————————————————-
At conception, you go in as a seed (sperm) but you come out as a “human,” who is ready for the next CHALLENGE, just like a caterpillar. When the caterpillar 🐛 thought she was dying, she became a butterfly 🦋. The caterpillar doesn’t die; it evolves, and so does the sperm. It’s NOT death; it’s evolution.
When you feel like you’re suffocating, you’re actually being born. When you feel you can’t breathe, your lungs are actually expanding and filling up with fresh air. That’s awakening 🙆🏻♀️. ——————————————————
مثل المَخاض ، عندما تشتد المِحَن ، تبدأ الحياة و يبزغ الفجر 🌓 بعد الظلام . البذور لا تُدفَن بل تُزرع في التراب حيث تعود 🌱 لتحيا من جديد مثل حال البويضة. ضاقت حتى إستحكمت حُلُقاتُها ففُرِجَت و كُنتُ أظُنُها لن تُفرَج ...
