Freedom Lies In the Unknown

One more from Deepak Chopra's The Way of the Wizard, Twenty Spiritual Lessons for Creating the Life You Want.

"The wizard has completely freed himself from the known. To him, the only freedom lies in the unknown because whatever is known is past and dead."

After losing a loved one, a person is set adrift from all that he/she once knew. Rather than being stuck in how it always was, try to open up your mind to possibilities.

Try to treat the unknown (your new life) as an adventure and not something to be feared. Instead of walking with your head down and blinders on, walk with your eyes up and constantly look around you.

Take advantage of chance meetings and coincidences; listen to your intuition and act on it; and learn to trust yourself.

These actions will help you to break free from the known and enter the unknown of a new life.

This is yet another step on the journey from loss to renewal that will allow you to readjust the picture of your former spouse so that you may welcome new love into your life. Please know that I am not suggesting that you jump head first into new adventures without considering the ramifications -- only to be open to unknown.
