Rites of Passage

Seems fitting that Burning Man’s primary theme this year is that of the Rites of Passage, and that I am making my way there in the coming weeks.  Many things have been presenting themselves as challenges and rites in-and-of themselves as of late.

There are a number of different things I will be exorcising while present at the temple… primarily, most of it will consist of old emotional baggage; trappings that I needn’t bear any further hence.  Memories and people I need to let go of, wishes and fantasies that need to burn-out and die, and pipe-dreams that demand to be broken.  I’ll probably be a bit negative for a while, but hopefully I will be at a net-positive on the way back to the Default World.

New day, new challenges.  New things to do at work, new problems to climb at the gym, new opportunities to re-invent the wheel… then re-invent myself.  One day at a time, one step at a time… one breath at a time.

May the road rise-up to meet you, may the wind be at your back to speed you on your way, and may the sun warm you and light your way.  Until next time.

  1. As you said, ” One day at a time, one step at a time… one breath at a time. “, do exactly that!

    *Smile, breathe and go slowly*, you will make something beautiful happen 😉

  2. It’s good to look inward and remove outdated thoughts or beliefs, just don’t ever give up on your dreams if they still touch your heart. Adjust them if necessary, but don’t be dreamless. It deadens the mind.

    Human or otherwise, keep soul-searching and striving for joy. Every soul that dreams big, expands the multiverse that much further.
