Real growth happens outside of the comfort zone. Beyond that horizon of routine is where we find the spice of life, the real magick that makes life worth living.
Outside the comfort zone is where you may:
- Ask the person you like out on a date, or say “I love you” for the first time
- Register for a marathon and begin training
- Start a new business
- Put yourself “out there” in a new way
- Practice forgiveness and compassion in the face of adversity
It is better to try and fail, than to play it safe and never find out who you truly are.
Despite knowing the many riches that can be found outside the comfort zone, it can still be difficult to get there.
One tricky aspect is that as we grow, our comfort zone expands with us, and we have to keep the fire going to continue breaking new ground.
Another challenge is that it’s easy for inertia to set in if we aren’t paying attention. We get into our routine. Do what’s comfortable.
If we always run away from discomfort, we won’t stay long enough for that new growth to break through. As the caterpillar transforms into the butterfly, it completely breaks down into a goo before coming into its new form. Embrace the goo.
Getting comfortable with discomfort is going to be your greatest asset on this journey.
The potential of your being is longing to be expressed. Do not let doubt, fear, or shame dim that light.
Because real growth isn’t all glitter and sunshine. It takes courage and faith. It is like walking on an invisible bridge, revealing itself beneath your feet with each step you take. Revealing more of who you truly are.
This is the path to KNOW THYSELF. It is a path to FREEDOM.
The Path of Initiation helps us navigate outside of the comfort zone. The energy and tools of initiation are like having a rocket booster, to move beyond the inertia and keep us moving on a path of accelerated growth.
It doesn’t have to be painful. When the potential of your being is longing to be expressed, the words of Anais Nin ring true: “the risk of remaining tight in a bud is more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
It is fulfilling the expression of your spirit. It is coming home to your self.
It begins with EMPOWER THYSELF!
