Chaos enters the spaces of stagnation not to obliterate but to break down what is not working so the inherent pattern of order can emerge in a new light and the holy path of inward peace can once again be seen clearly.
The choice to destroy is not necessarily negative but sometimes absolutely necessary as a way to tear apart a dilapidated structure so a more solid foundation can be established upon which to build a temple of health, happiness, and love.
Life is not always easy- but the trials and tribulations are inherent in the process of progression as a way to push evolution forward and the challenges that naturally arise are a Godsend of grace presented to teach the lesson that we are creatures of adaptation and survival.
