We are born. We live. And then, we die. We like to think of life as being this simple. Clean. Round. But the truth is, in our short lifetimes, we will die and be reborn many times. We know this from the stories we read in our myths. Heroes chase their goals into dark arenas, caves, or lands of undead. While there, they experience a metaphoric or literal death. They are reborn wiser, stronger, and with newfound grace. These heroes’ journeys exist to tell us about our own lives. Rebirth is not a work of fiction, but a constant phenomenon happening to all of us. It occurs when a singularly definable trait or habit that makes up your identity, is removed, making way for lasting change. It allows us to transform for the better. And we should embrace it.
Rebirth is necessary. But many of us go through life resisting it. We fear that if a part of our pattern is interrupted, not maintained, or purged, that we will have lost something vital to our own self-image. But this is fundamentally false. Because, when an old pattern or trait dies, it opens up space for a new one. Life is constantly throwing new challenges and opportunities our way. And we try to solve every problem, take up every journey, and follow all our passions with the same methods. It is impossible. To rise to the occasion, we have to learn, grow, and change. Therefore, we must let go of the parts of ourselves that are not serving us. We may not be the same person at the end of that journey, but hopefully, we will be a little better.
Every hero who goes on a journey, loses themselves, and is reborn. This happens in any period of time, across any circumstance. It is, however, important to add that many of them have help. They receive supernatural aid in the form of tools, trinkets, and wisdom. The have magical walking sticks, special armor, and secret knowledge. Your journey may not involve the same epic quests of mythologies and religions past, but if you want to be reborn, it would be wise to accept a few aids for the long road. And we have plenty of them at The Open Mind Center. Products to help you focus, re-align your spiritual nature, rejuvenate your spirit. Classes to teach you knew skills. And, sessions that coach you through life’s obstacles.
We are born, reborn, reborn again, and reborn a thousand times in our lifetime. Embrace it with the love and attention you have given to every story that has inspired you.
