The rhythm of life

“Spiritual growth is like childbirth. You dilate, then you contract. You dilate, then you contract again. As painful as it all feels, it’s the necessary rhythm for reaching the ultimate goal of total openness. The pain of childbirth is more bearable as we realize where it’s leading.”

Marianne Williamson

 

it’s like breathing
it’s laughing
it’s crying
it’s screaming
it’s singing

contract, release
contract, expand
contract, let go
contract, grow
