After a fantastic, sunny and spacious dip into the Vacationland, followed by a harrowing week of over-commitment and New England snow, I find myself unusually speechless.
If you know me, you understand that last comment.
Generally I am not a woman of few words.
Yet, on this rainy Friday, I am clueless in Lenox.
Ticking away is the techno-clock, calling for this unwritten blog to manifest into presence.
Keeping it succinct and simple, two other qualities I don’t easily cozy up to, let me just say:
It is all true!
We get it all.
- Sunny, spacious vacations
- Harrowing and overwhelming work weeks
- Fear of letting go
- Effortless surrender
- Tender vulnerability
- Resilient strength
- Boundless energy
- Achy, tired feel
We get it all.
We cannot have one aspect without the other, dear friends of integrated consciousness.
We are living unity. We are living presence.
Life is calling us into a widening, a deepening, an opening up to all aspects of ourselves.
Living mindfully calls us into the human dilemma with all compassion for ourselves.
Mindfulness encourages us to remember—the doorway to Grace is through the human moment.
The lack of knowing~
They present themselves, these inevitable human opportunities, moment after moment, calling for our attention.
Through breath, through relaxed acknowledgment, we are carried through them, through the portal of humanity, into freedom, into grace, into choice, into possibility.
That sacred pause, where choice and freedom reside!
Bless our humanness, dear friends!
Bless our flaws and our desires, our miscalculations, our injuries to ourselves and to the ones we dearly love.
May we relax into and acknowledge them without judgment.
May we befriend all aspects of ourselves, as best we can.
May we be carried home.
Bless our wacky humanity.
Bless our remarkable spirits.
Bless our glorious bodies that hold it all.
