There is no keeping yourself safe; there is only choice. You will lose something and you will gain something. Something you love will be taken away and something you never knew was possible will find you. You will grieve and you will dance. You will celebrate and you will weep. There’s no need to take it all so seriously. You can, and that will be another opportunity to learn, but you don’t have to. You have been afforded an avalanche of grace in this lifetime, it will not run out. You are loved beyond measure. It is all a cosmic adventure. You are going for it, living life fully with passion and fear and innocence and wisdom and rage and desire and peace and beauty. It is all in you. Congratulations, you are doing exactly what you came here to do.
