Day 236/365 As Above, So Below

”As above, so below:

There are moments for planting and moments for blooming – knowing which moment to grasp determines our experience. Often we’re so focused on blooming that we forget that we need to dig deep before we can plant in the first place. You do not have to fight the dirt when you are aware of its purpose.”

– Feliciana Cacciapuoti-Mathew

A friend shared this today and I felt as though I was reading the exact right thing at the exact right moment. I love when that happens – when wisdom finds its way to my heart right when I need it. I may have even gasped when the words landed.

”You do not have to fight the dirt when you are aware of its purpose.”

The other day I wrote about The Nothing, and about how I realized that The Nothing comes from a lack of imagination and hope for what lies ahead. I have ceased to daydream about the future, because I have started to fear it.

I want to be excited, and joyful and optimistic, but…

It’s as if my adrenal glands are screaming, “NO more surprises! NO more change! We are f’ing exhausted.  Just….NO.”


So…this wisdom, it struck me perfectly.

“There are moments for planting and there are moments for blooming…”

Right now, I am finding my footing. I am doing some deep digging. 

This is where I need to be right now. Doing the work; sowing the seeds.

In time, I will once again bloom.

I do not have to fight the dirt, because I am aware of its purpose. 

I am reminded of this quote as well…

“They tried to bury us. They didn’t know we were seeds.” –  Dinos Christianopoulos
