behind the waiting

Death waits for me, I know it, around one corner or another.

This doesn’t amuse me. Neither does it frighten me.

After the rain, I went back into the field of sunflowers.

It was cool, and I was anything but drowsy.

I walked slowly, and listened to the crazy roots,

in the drenched earth, laughing and growing.

~Mary Oliver

I wait.

inquiry for today~ how will you walk through shadows today?

the point of chaos

How do we endure the disorientation and discomfort necessary to apprehend reality differently? This depends on whether we stay willful or risk our surrender. This presents another crucial choice: whether to dig in and keep asserting our will, trying to obliterate the problem, or whether to surrender and drop down into a deeper apprehension of things. Often, if we can surrender into that deeper sense of things, we become aware of larger patterns, which often present the one clear action that makes inner sense.
