When I despair, I lose steam, I sink.
When I panic I become reactive
and head in the wrong direction.
When I come from hope, I gain courage,
I find allies, I tune out he naysayers,
and I fix my eyes on my dreams,
but also on the practical structures
that will activate those dreams.
I think of hope as the baby of those
two forces- dreams and practicality.
I have a name for that baby.
I call her “smart hope.”
the wise ones teach us to look again….
inquiry for today~ what have you missed along the way?
The goal of the hero tripdown to the jewel point
is to find those levels in the psyche
that open, open, open,
and finally open to the mystery
of your Self
or the Christ.
That’s the journey.
It is all about finding that still point
in your mind
where commitment drops away.
