In the alchemical process, everything separates, dissolves, and unites again, but gets purified in the action. Transformation requires a movement from one place to another – an adventure into a forest, falling down into a cave, a going or a coming, and always traveling through something. We get there on our knees and then we begin to look up, but we are emptied and not the same. We crucify to resurrect, we lose to find to never lose again.
In the dark night of our soul, we have suffered, cleansed, healed, survived and changed. The phoenix rose from the ashes. Our humanity turned into divinity. It had to because we have walked through fires of purification and bravely and deeply.
The game of life, the school of earth, is for us to grow our souls. We are here to become masters of our destiny, superior to circumstance, and to know the truth of who we are and what we carry.
We are here to fall down and to get back up.
