Lightly Child, Lightly

Time and again I was seeing that if I could handle the winds of the current storm, they would end up blowing in some great gift … Challenging situations create the force needed to bring about change. The problem is that we generally use all the stirred up energy intended to bring about change, to resist change. I was learning to sit quietly in the midst of the howling winds and wait to see what constructing action was being asked of me.

  11. I’m scrolling backwards again through your posts and wondering *again* why I don’t allow myself this daily gift. I read and see and listen while my heart fills my throat and tears roll. I have this little chance to let light in every day, a moment of connection and recognition, a pause in the head-noise. What else could possibly be more important?
