Anagnorisis: the point in the plot especially of a tragedy at which the protagonist recognizes his or her or some other character's true identity or discovers the true nature of his or her own situation.
I am a Unitarian Universalist, taking the path of a Transcendentalist. It is no surprise that I was drawn to the Bonita Rose, Life.Love.Color.Art blog post entitled TRANSITION and TUNING YOUR EARS this morning, where I was meant to read this quote by Tama Kieves:
"Everybody wants to rush through transition like it’s a bad root canal. But transition is a threshold. It’s a sacred appointment—the crossing from one world to another. There are promises, insights, revelations, and messages during this time. You will not escape yourself here. You will not escape your deepest questions. This is a blessing."
This quote resonated with reverberation in my heart, especially since I posted 5 SPLENDID OPPORTUNITIES encouraging my readers to Cross the Rubicon yesterday.
If you, too, are in TRANSITION, take a deep breath, and visit the posts on both Bonita Rose's and Hide A Heart's blogs. You will be glad because there's something special waiting for you.
