A Breathless Time

We are in it.


I believe our nation and the human race is in transition and in the labor of birthing, transition is the most painful stage, the most dangerous.

It is a breathless time. It feels like dying, and yet it is precisely in transition that you begin to see glimpses of what is wanting to be born.

In transition, the midwife tells us to breathe and push, to breathe again, and then to push. There’s wisdom in learning how to sustain that kind of labor.

I believe that every single one of us has a role in that labor, and I believe that we can last in that labor if we are anchoring ourselves in love every day.”
