Unfold and Unfurl
“Patience doesn’t mean making a pact with the devil of denial, ignoring our emotions and aspirations. It means being wholeheartedly engaged in the process that’s unfolding, rather than ripping open a budding flower or demanding a caterpillar hurry up and get that chrysalis stage over with.” – Sharon Salzberg
In the unfolding, we enter the flow of life.
In the messiness, substance to create beauty and meaning.
Rush less to fixing, conclusions and solving.
Enter the mystery.
Inquire and allow the answers to find you.
Feel the undercurrent as well as the breeze that sweeps the surface.
At the same time.
Plant seeds. Lots.
Some take root.
Wholehearted. Imperfect. All in.
Get out of the spectator section.
Out of the backseat.
Into the fog of unknowing.
Find the path and then break trail it to explore and expand.
To pave new paths amidst uncertainty.
No fixed points for long.
In circles, cycles, detours and delays.
The path unfolds before us as we move into it.
Signs and signals guide and direct.
Trust your intuition.
Unfold and unfurl.
“Too many spend too much time trying to live in a fixed point, when our lives are an unfolding journey. Taking on new challenges is how we fix the world.” – Arturo O’Farrill
