“Ruins always occur when we rise,” said the Phoenix.
“You must burn away the old life that doesn’t fit anymore to feed the fires needed for transformation. You must release all you believed that no longer serves you in order to become all that you are.
This creates the rubble that falls away as the walls that once were tumble to the ground beneath our feet. This is the place that the shrouds that once concealed the truth of us scatter to the four winds.”
“What if I choose wrong? What if I make a mistake and burn every bridge and tie and it turns out to be wrong?”
“There is no such thing as the wrong path when you follow your dreams, your passion and your desire,” the Phoenix spoke.
“When the flames ignite to burn away what was, know that this is the path.
Know that when the smoke clears and you rise to stand, all that is meant to be there will be within reach or on it’s way to you.
There is no wrong way, no wrong time and there is no too late.
There is now; this moment, this breathe, this time.
You have an infinite chances to break the chains that bind you and burn the past away.
That is my gift to you to wield whenever you choose, the transformative dance of the Phoenix flame.”
