We are born with a great dream for our lives. After your roots have gone deeply into this world, it is time to resurrect this dream . . By reclaiming your life dream -- by refusing to stay down-- you 'lift up your heart to heaven' and make all things possible. --Angeles Arrien
When we complete a journey through the land of shadow revelation, our greatest reward is the awareness that we are beginning something new. The word "resurrection" means "to rise up," and this is what occurs emotionally and psychologically when we become conscious of how we have been hurting ourselves through our universal belief in suffering.
To begin a new phase of self-awareness requires much courage because we are so conditioned to repeat what we know over and over again. So it is through the gift of resurrection that we become able to begin anew, to make a fresh start, and to begin having something new. We must willingly let go of the familiar in order to experience the new.
Resurrection As Breaking The Cycle of Abuse
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the Will of God -- what is good, and acceptable, and perfect. -- Romans 12:2
Every time we experience a hurt, a wrong, an injustice, a disappointment, a betrayal, or a loss, we can choose to remember and practice the lessons of Resurrection. We can choose to accept that only pain-filled people do painful and harm-filled things. And we can choose not to engage with their belief systems. And we can choose not to take on their pain. And we can choose to allow the experience to release more of our own pent up primal pain. For the less pain we unconsciously carry, the less we will unconsciously tranfer it to those we love and to those on whom we depend for support in our three dimensional existence. To break free from abuse in all of it's visible and invisible forms, we can choose the "death" of our own reactionary beliefs. And through that dying we can access a new level of the truth of who we are.
