Day 7: Crossing the Threshold
The first leg of your journey is coming to an end; today is the final step in the Outer World. You have left behind the world you once knew and entered a whole new world. Now is the time to take a look at the journey thus far and see what you notice about where you have come from. As you progress on your journey through life, it is important to stop and look at how far you've come. Skipping this step leads to burnout, exhaustion and disease; don't do that to yourself. Take some time to appreciate yourself and your journey, you're up to some miraculous things in your life and today we honor you for the extraordinary human you are.
As you get ready ready to step into the World Of Agreements, take note of what you have gone through in the Outer World. Crossing the threshold is a big deal, even though it may not seem like it in the moment. The Outer World is everything you have known your whole life. You have been in relationships every day of your life since you were born, you are very familiar with the process of relating to other people. While your relationships in this area may have needed some attention, this world is familiar. Now you are getting ready to venture into a land far less known - and here, there be monsters. (Seriously, you wouldn't believe some of the things people have shared with us regarding the place you're headed.)
As you complete the Outer World today, start to reflect on your intentions for the program and remember why you have chosen to take on this journey. Your intentions are like your roadmap moving forward, but they are not the road - don't be so focused on the map that you miss what is going on around you. You will notice many things in your life begin to change, so make sure you are open to receive what comes your way along this journey. You have done a lot of work to get to this point, look back and see where you have come from, say good-bye, and look forward to what is to come. Embrace the mystery of the new world you are entering and get ready for the next adventure.
When you feel like you're not making any progress:
Take a look at where you've come from!
There will always be work to do; make sure to take some time to rest and appreciate the journey.
