“Much of the later growth of life may look at first like loss, just as much of the earlier growth appears to be gain. But that is no more true than the sense that spring is a season of gain and fall a season of loss. Each is essential to the full cycle, and the cycle is the only context in which the specific changes along the way have real meaning. Most people create new situations in the present, new hopes for the future, and new ways to realize them. The image for such a life is not an upward-trending diagonal of increasing achievement, but a spiral of linked circles- the completion of each leading to a new cycle of experience and activity based upon a new dream. People who have discounted and blocked out the inner callings from the future have cut themselves off from the very signals that really vital people use to stay on the paths of their own development. And unless you disrupt it by trying to rush through your ‘neutral zone’ quickly, you are slowly being transformed into the person you need to be to move forward in your life.”
