lost and safe

“Just ’cause you feel it, doesn’t mean it’s there.”

Alright.

I’ve had enough.

I’m listening.

What are you saying to me?

Slow. Go slower.

Why?

You’re trying to do too much too fast.

It is more difficult than I imagined to listen. To do so with genuine compassion is the greatest skill to posses. I expect it is something that will take me quite a while to master. That and humility. Realizing that my opinions and feelings are not relevant to the task at hand.

So I’m listening. Everyone and everything is telling me to stop rushing pushing doingdoingdoing. Work hard, yes, but pace yourself and allow life to unfold around you. Learn to fully inhabit every encounter and every experience that is made manifest before you. Slow down. No need to jump jump turn move do say. Just be still and be there.

Allow the glory of life flow from within you and surround you.
