an entry to a life worth living — Annapurna Living



VOID::
a completely empty space
an unfilled space
the in-between

There is the space that I feel—a void.
A space that has nothing to hold onto.
The void is the emptiness
the unknown.

….

Last year, we stayed with friends who hosted our family as we looked for a rental house.
We had no suitable leads, and as a family we were held by my friends and their generous hospitality.

We were deep in the void.
The void feels groundless.
The void can feel scary.

What got me and us through this void was the kindness of our friends and the ability to stay in the moment.
The mind does not want us to stay in the moment.
The mind wants to protect, to flee, to fight.
The mind loves taking a thought and sending it down a rabbit hole.

Having the skill set to stay in the moment isn’t airy fairy.
It isn’t just for the yogi over there with a seemingly calm exterior.
This skill set is the difference between getting through hard stuff intact, or completely falling apart.

BUT…

Falling apart is sometimes the entry into a life worth living.
Falling apart is sometimes the mind letting go of all the things it holds onto for dear life, and falling into the Void.

The Void is here to show you that you are enough.
That you can navigate hard stuff.
And that if we can learn not to fill the Void with busy-making
and busy-minding,
if we can settle into the discomfort of the Void
we can find gold.

Falling apart is sometimes the entry into a life worth living.

You are worthy
And so is your life.

Love,
Carrie-Anne
