The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you
The market only wants to buy & sell you
Fight to stay awake
Choose the path you take
Even if you don’t know where it’s going
Trust your own unknowing
…don’t go back to sleep…
we have so much more to give, so much more energy when we envision from a wider lens….a deeper perspective…we tire less easily….we are more tolerant…we don’t react so quickly…
the funny thing is…this does not mean to fall into complacency…does not mean to come from a ‘safe’ vantage..it means Opening…deeply & with strength to withstand all that comes in….
as the quote so aptly says…don’t be asleep…& trust your unknowing…
if it comes from the heart, not ego, may it be so….
this is not trite & easy work…this is a lifetime’s commitment…this is being with life…not shutting down…knowing it’s ok to not understand it all…..
ya got to hold on….‘bless my heart
& bless yours too’…
The tragic sense of life is ironically not tragic at all, at least in the Big Picture. Living in such deep time, connected to past & future, prepares us for necesssary suffering, keeps us from despair about our own failure & loss, & ironically offers us a way through it all. We are merely joining the great parade of humanity that has walked ahead of us & will follow us. The tragic sense of life is not unbelief, pessimism, fatalism, or cynicism. It is just ‘ultimate & humiliating realism,’ which for some reason demands a lot of forgiveness of almost everything. This is perhaps our major stumbling stone, the price we must pay to keep the human heart from closing down & to keep the soul open for something more……Richard Rohr
