Completion – Al-Akhir
“When you are guided to this pathway, take the opportunity to feel complete for now with a state of stage of your life.”
I stumbled on this pathway about a month ago and the synchronicities have been mind blowing. There are so many facets of this pathway that have come up as lessons that I decided that I would create a healing experience as a result.
For all of us, we get to the end of something. The end of something is also the beginning of something new, but as human nature would have it, the end is the only thing that we can see. Human beings have a tendency to focus in a very finite way. This is why when something is ending, it is very final. We focus on that particular ending and not on what comes after or what is beyond. We can take this idea and extrapolate it to many things. Relationships, money or even physical human life itself.
It got me thinking about endings in a completely different way. What if we did ask ourselves what’s beyond the end? When we don’t have the answer for something, it often prevents us from even asking the question. I have been thinking about this quite deeply.
For me, often you have to be ready to completely let go of one thing before completion can happen. Sometimes it’s very obvious that it’s over and sometimes the boundaries are more blurred. How do we know when to let go and say that is the end of something?
In some situations, the ending is imposed upon us and we have very little choice in the matter. In other situations, we deliberately choose to create an ending – we impose it ourselves for a multitude of reasons. This isn’t what we want anymore and so we are going to end that and leave it there.
Often easier said than done. This idea of wholeheartedly letting go requires a bending of the ego, the loss of one form of identity and above and beyond all else, a trust and acceptance in the next chapter.
These pathways always connect the dots for me and work synchronistically. We’ve just been through Eclipse season and two full moons that link deeply to this theme. It has brought up changes, sometimes forced and sometimes as decisive changes for both myself and a number of my clients.
One of the things that I’ve come to explore is this idea of wanting to let go versus actually letting go. Completion is a whole new direction and one of the things that the pathway has taught me is just how much we can fool ourselves in to thinking that we have let go and how much we dupe ourselves in to thinking that we have gone through completion. We haven’t. If we had, the next thing would manifest so quickly so there’s windows of healing within this pathway that we need to look at.
It’s the human mind’s comprehension that matters here. The idea of something being “no more” automatically triggers a wound because in one sense, our separation from Source to arrive here was our first experience of completion. That was our time to leave and we didn’t like it. I certainly feel this on a personal level. We can argue about whether we chose to come here or not until we are blue in the face. The fact of the matter is that our experience of completion, of endings isn’t wholeheartedly positive. This is why letting go is so difficult.
I believe when things end, they go back to Source and when our lives are complete, that’s where we will go too. “To Him we belong and to Him we return” as it is written in the Quran. All things need completion to pave the way for something new.
Life is a continuous renewal. A cycle of birth, death and rebirth. The book talks about pursuing something from it’s beginning, middle and through to it’s end. Life is a holding space and although there are sub-stages within stages of our lives, there’s very little that we see through in this way. This in itself highlights the idea of committing to something through to it’s completion. The first thing we commit to on this path is our own journey and seeing that through to completion. We are yet to taste what that feels like but we rise, learn and fall and learn to rise again with each experience.
Our egos, our personalities, our relationships, our fortune and destiny all go through this complex cycle. Wherever you’re at in your journey, you’ll have been before and you will visit once again in a different form.
When we take completion in the context of the whole cycle, we can begin to look beyond just this one stage. It can help us to heal on so many levels and all through this awareness. Yes, it’s completion but it opens us up to some much more. In essence, Love doesn’t have an end and is continuous.
Endings open up hurt. Hurt opens up wounds. Wounds need healing. Completion allows us to see this. As the book says, “a thousand potential pearls lie wrapped within us. To grasp another, we may need to let go of the one already in our hand.”
As we evolve, we let go not only of old ideas but of all ideas because in essence, there is a beauty in surrender. A burning, a depth and a trust that opens our heart to the heart of the One. By letting go, we place ourselves firmly in the hands of Source to carry us to our next phase. And so it begins again.
Surrender is the key as with many of the other pathways. This is surrender on it’s deepest level. Completion is surrender of the ego, of personality, of expectation. Completion arrives with it’s threatening presence to the status quo and even if we don’t like where we are now, we fight for it to stay the same. This takes us back to the idea of not being able to see beyond, but the idea is to rather trust beyond our current circumstances. It’s trust in something that isn’t tangible, isn’t known and defined. That’s a challenge that requires a softening of the heart so that trust can be placed within it. It’s only known through experiencing. Closing your eyes and free-falling in to that trust.
If you would like to go deeper in to this pathway, I have created this audio healing session that will support your healing and exploration on a deeper level.
