I apologize for taking so long to update. But the Journey to Peace isn't always in the flow. For the first part of this new year I've found myself in the ebb of life. There's an internal shift happening. At the moment, that's all I really know.
Over the last few days, I've sat in front of my keyboard with my fingers poised, ready for that stream-of-conscious writing that I so love to do. Instead I find myself writing half-assed sentences, drifting off into space, getting distracted by air - and at the same time I feel so deeply connected to my process. There are just no words... yet. ::shrug:: Nothing I can do but let go and trust. Trust that this is one of the beauties of life's creative process.
A week ago I might have sat here beating myself up for being "non-productive" but today I'm well aware that this moment of inactivity is just as big a part of the process as activity. It is absolutely out of my hands. It's impossible to rush the creative process. I don't think I fully understood that concept until now. Or, maybe I did ... but today I'm choosing not to judge it. That's the difference.
Life happens as it happens. I have no control over that. But it's up to me to choose how I will show up and how I will react. [Ooh, reaction. Big lessons here.] Balance. Manifestation. Creation. Self-care. These are all lessons I'm learning and commitments I'm beginning to make for the coming year ... hopefully to change patterns for the rest of my life.
I owe a lot of you email. I haven't forgotten. It's all here, in my inbox. I have 30 comments to respond to from a previous post. Please know I will, when I can. In this moment, that's all I can offer. Well, that, and a lot of love!
