Your confusion is not pathology, it is path

Your confusion is not pathology, it is path. It has something to reveal to you that clarity and certainty could never, ever show you. The nature of confusion is wisdom, but you must make a home for it within you to receive its mysteries.

Your feeling of disconnection is not neurotic, it is intelligent. It has something to reveal to you that oneness could never, ever show you. If you will allow it to unfold, resisting the temptation to send it away, it will expose a secret within you.

Your sadness, your loneliness, your fear, and your anxiety are not mistakes. They are not obstacles on your path. They *are* the path. The freedom you are longing for is not found in the eradication of these, but in the information they carry. You need not transcend anything here, but be willing to become deeply intimate with your lived, embodied experience. Your intimacy is your path home.

There are movements of somatic wisdom arising within you that contain very important information for your journey. If you will provide shelter for what is burning within, you will see that these are no ordinary messengers. They are harbingers of integration, sent from beyond to reveal the wholeness that is the signature of this dimension. Nothing is missing, nothing is out of place, nothing need be sent away. Inside your body, in the center of your emotions, in the core of your somatic experience the sacred world is wild and alive. Feel it, friends. You have been brought to right here and right now, for this.

The beloved is here and she will continue to send her envoys to you, in the form of oneness and separation, broken and whole, confusion and clarity, and sadness and joy. Each of love’s forms has come to unlock a unique place within you, so that a particular form of light can come through into this world. You will burn until you are translucent, but it is within this burning that your gifts will be revealed.

    I needed every word of this today. I am actively engaged in this struggle and to all intents and purposes have come to the realization that I have struggled with this at one time or another my entire life. I am tired. In my exhaustion it is hard for me to believe the resolution will be clarity and sense of purpose, but I feel the healing balm of the words this day nonetheless. Thank you for posting this. I am deeply grateful to have found this page and to have read this words.

    This is so beautiful and in alignment with many paths I am drawn to- in particular The Pathwork Lectures and ‘The Undefended Self’ by Susan Thesenga. Are you familiar with Pathwork?

    Thank you so much,

    Carolee

    Dear Mr. Lucata,

    The depth of insight as evidenced in all your writing speaks volumes about your spiritual height. I see love beautifully portrayed in all your articles. I’ll love to see you write full books where you explain in your characteristic style this much needed and “greatest” thing in the world – LOVE.

    I am in this place you describe, and I’m staying present with the emotions as they arise, accepting. Which is ok when I’m home alone, but when I’m out in the world, and my work in particular, I feel my vulnerability to the upset of others, and I need to hold therapeutic space. What are your thoughts here?

    This is beautifully written and touches my soul. The perfect encouragement for lingering in my confusion knowing that I will soon gain the wisdom of this stepping stone and continue on my life’s path.
