‘Come out of the masses. Stand alone like a lion and live your life according to your own light.’ Osho
In my many years as a therapist to those facing hard transitions, I have often seen how a life crisis precedes one’s ability to live according to the wisdom of today’s quote.
Coming out of the masses is hard; scary in fact, but a life crisis can often propel us to a place where the masses no longer matter. Once the masses are far behind us, in the quiet of our own being we can begin the process of sifting through a broken life. As we re-assemble the pieces of our world, we find the strength to stand up and look toward the future….and we do stand alone like a lion. Those first steps toward a new horizon are always taken according to our own light. There is a beauty in this process, but there is also another way.
