The Ritual Of The Acorn

The path of Awakening is, for everyone who walks it, fraught with challenges. It’s not all ‘love and light’ as many would have you believe. It asks that we trust in the natural unfolding of Life, have faith in ourselves, act courageously, and surrender to each moment. This explains why so many people avoid it at all costs. Awakening requires that we essentially undertake the extraordinary - and often very frightening - task of dying (metaphorically speaking) to our formal ‘small’ selves, so that we can be reborn as our ‘greater’ selves.
