You may now be discovering that some of the teachings of the elders are of great value. The time for rebelling against them has come to an end as you embrace that which benefits your actions and goals, and move away from those which do not.
At one time it was quite common to hear people say, “It is fate”, or “destiny” and that, “it could not be helped”. Those days are over as people realize they do indeed have the power to change circumstances, not only in their own life, but in the world.
Your good cannot be destroyed … only that which is oppressing you is dissolving. While your job may end, or your relationship, your habits, or whatever it may be, it is only occurring so that you may grow.
It may shake you to your core, it will not be a comfortable ride, but time of separation is over. Through the elimination of those concepts that limit your good, your energy is released to serve the whole.
Healing comes by destruction and rebirth. Life continues. Learn from the creatures who live in earths body, the smallest life forms, the tiniest crawlers, are necessary to break down the larger forms that are no longer needed.
