Most of Us Are Dragged Towards Wholeness, Episode 146

Life keeps calling us to uncover and act on all the parts of ourselves we’ve so far left out, but much of the time we resist the call. Too painful perhaps, too unfamiliar. Sometimes, though, we find ourselves stepping right into exactly that unfamiliarity and making discoveries about ourselves the open up a whole world… and sometimes we find ourselves being that for others. Both require us to give up on how we’ve known ourselves so far; to give up ‘playing the game of identity’ that has become familiar to us. A conversation about learning how to step more fully into life, with Lizzie Winn and Justin Wise of Thirdspace.

This is Turning Towards Life, a weekly live 30 minute conversation hosted by Thirdspace in which Justin Wise and Lizzie Winn dive deep into big questions of human living. Find us on FaceBook to watch live and join in the lively conversation on this episode. We’re also on YouTube, and as a podcast on Apple, Google and Spotify. You can find videos of every episode, and more about the project on the Turning Towards Life website.

Our source for this week is chosen for us by Lizzie.

Most of us are dragged
towards wholeness.
We do not understand the breakdown of what has gone before.
We do not understand.
We cling to the familiar,
Refuse to make necessary sacrifices,
Refuse to give up habitual lives,
Resist our growth.
We do not understand rebirth,
Do not accept the initiation rites.
Most of us are dragged
Towards wholeness.
