My life has been off kilter for the past two months for other reasons, a DCIS diagnosis which is a kind of precancer in my breast. There have been moments of anger, sadness, fear as well as determination and reconfiguration.
Maybe we need to be thrown off center in order to gain a new perspective. As our life is reordered and/or recreated by this new way of seeing, we begin to realize that perhaps there is a new center to be had. Being off kilter may be exactly what we need, even if it doesn’t feel like it at the time. I’m beginning to see how this diagnosis is a gift. I see my life differently and am much clearer about what I want now. Maybe the turnout of this election is a gift as well.
It’s really a matter of perspective. Center is always in the middle of our higher self or the Divine, but that may feel like a different place in relation to our lives as we shift and change. Our becoming shifts our center of being. We need only to remember that our center is peace. Find that and we are home again.
