There always comes a time of elimination.
The earth sheds each year.
The trees and flowers let go of their identity.
As the old identity dies, a new identity is born.
The body sheds constantly.
Some of it happens invisibly,
so naturally and silently that we do not realize it is happening.
 
The heart and the spirit also shed.

 
They shed the emotions and experiences that we no longer need.
They shed the things that stunt our growth.
This, too, is an invisible process.
Yet because of the energy involved, the emotional energy,
we often feel the emotional and spiritual shedding.
It feels as if we are dying.
We are.
Just like the flowers and the trees, we are dying to an old identity.
This shedding, or death, is not the end of us.


It is the beginning.
