Unspoken truth about divorce-- and my maiden voyage in blog land!
I am a "divorce attorney." (Because divorce is about people not widgets...) I see people engage in the ritual combat of divorce every day. It never ceases to amaze me how their professed spiritual beliefs disappear the minute the start the ritual. It is sad, but it is because they enter a more powerful belief set. A more powerful archetype/
For make no mistake-- divorce IS a ritual. An unholy one, a destructive one... but a ritual. A VERY public ritual. For most people it is a ritual with far greater power than their private spiritual practice. I think this is part of what this movement, "cutting edge law" seeks to change.
You've seen it-- famous "gurus" and others we admire who end up in messy divorces.It is also sad that someone who made a particular spiritual practice part of their public persona to publicly abandon it... but it is NOT surprising. It is,of course, a collective phenomenon.
Until we change the public ritual, it will continue to hold the power to cause most people to abandon their highest beliefs and aspirations and engage in the public battle. And we are all complicit, to a degree.
There... I said it.
