Kali does her work well, and she does it thoroughly. She burns things to the ground. She burns your life to the ground. But she only removes that which is not essential to your true nature. She gets rid of what you do not truly need so that you can become who you truly are.
It was where everything that I thought I had to have to feel safe and secure in life, outside of myself, got stripped away.
And in that place of seeming nothingness, I was placed safely and firmly on a path of profound and lasting change based on a whole new way of thinking and being in the world.
For me, it was the beginning of a series of defining experiences in the development of in humility.
Now I did not do this alone, this is something others helped me with. In this journey for me I got an extra lucky gift. We call it the “gift of desperation”. Drinking alcohol, which had never been on my radar as an issue literally within a matter of six months spun out of control. This happens to women more quickly for many reasons than it does to men. And that was my experience. Fast and furious.
Now you may be thinking that this sounds horrible or maybe you feel sorry for me. Or maybe you can relate?
