Pause and Partake

“It is not our job to remain whole.
We came to lose our leaves
Like the trees, and be born again,
Drawing up from the great roots.”― Robert Bly

“In the end, I learned that the practice of Not-Knowing is the very ground of altruism, because it opens us up to a much wider horizon than our preconceptions could ever afford us and can let in connection and tenderness.”― Joan Halifax, Standing at the Edge: Finding Freedom Where Fear and Courage Meet

Seasons have much to teach us.
Transitions to transformation.
Returning again to the same made new with time.
Cycles, circles, spirals.
Leaving and returning home.
Shedding our ego, expectations, knowing.
Into being, unfolding, rebirth.
Rooted and fresh seedlings.
In the middle of daily doing, make space for BEing time.
To ground and fly at the same time.
To pause and partake.

“but BEing time is never wasted time. When we are BEing, not only are we collaborating with chronological time, but we are touching on kairos, and are freed from the normal restrictions of time.”― Madeleine L’Engle, Walking on Water: Reflections on Faith and Art
