Psychotherapy For The Curious
 

Robert Frost stated that the only way across is through. I believe moving through is a process of awareness, understanding, meaning, and growth. I use the word growth instead of change as change to me feels like there is something wrong, which negates the fact that there usually exists a positive side to some negative aspect. It may be a survival tactic that may not be as useful today as it is harmful, but understanding the useful side produces meaning.

Meaning is transformative. Meaning opens up possibilities which lead to growth. Moving through occurs by us beginning to uncover where you are, where you want to be, what motivates you, how you make decisions, your strengths, your desires, where you power is used and where you maybe want to direct your power.  These are just some of the questions that begin to get answered as you begin to become more conscious in your life. It is through this consciousness that you can tap into yourself, tap into your power, and begin to discover.

THE CHERRY BLOSSOM

A symbol for Life, Death, and Renewal. In China, cherry blossoms symbolize love, beauty, strength, and sexuality. In Japan, they represent the Buddhist themes of mortality, mindfulness, and 'mono no aware' - empathy toward things. A fallen cherry blossom is believed to symbolize the life of the Samurai, those who lived by a code of respect, honour, and discipline. Cherry blossoms are also viewed as a symbol of rebirth as when cherry blossoms are in full bloom, the future is full of possibilities. I could not think of a more fitting metaphor for this process.

 
 

 
Be patient towards all this is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to love them. And the point is, to live everything. Love the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
— Rainer Maria Rilke
