“If we fear change, we are blind to the mystery of life.” (Marc Nepo, Parabola Magazine, Fall 2015).
When I started feeling at home in Memphis, the Universe is telling me: “Time to move on!”. I would have never thought that would be possible, not right now, when I am making life long connections through Yoga and Reiki…But yes, I am about to leave my home for the last 16 years.
It’s hard to say good bye, really hard. I know I don’t want to acknowledge that distance makes a difference, but I trust that real connections go beyond space and physicality. They transcend time!
It seems to me that I was born to be a Bedouin, a Nomad, a citizen of the world. Changing countries for me has been like changing pajamas! What do I need to learn, once again, that I have not learnt previously?
Certainly letting go; letting go of my friends here, of my house, of my yoga classes, of my spirituality group, of my Reiki groups, and of what I know for sure. Knowing that home is where the heart is, where my family is; no matter where I am in this world, my home is inside me and with the people that I most love. Surrendering to the unexpected, to the unknown, and go with the flow. Trusting that there is a higher calling for my family to be in Brussels that we don’t know about. Knowing that this is my journey and it’s a perfect path for my soul to evolve and learn skills that I would not learn if I stayed in Memphis. And finally, it’s time to move on…letting go of the old to make space for the new.
