At Rope’s End

At the end of the rope, we have gone as far as we can go.
We have nothing more.
We have exhausted all outcomes.
We are at the end.

At the end, we stop trying.
We relax.
We let go.

At the end, we open.
We accept.
We receive.

Beyond the end is the unknown.
It is limitless.
There is freedom.

Beyond the end, there is mystery.
All outcomes are possible.
All potentials exist.

The end is of course not really the end.
It is simply the beginning.

Like the edge of the cliff, the end is the place where we launch.
It is the place where we fly.
It is the place where we awaken to the new way before us.

Do not be afraid of reaching the end of your rope.
With every end, you find a new beginning.
With every end, you find a new expression of who you really are.
