Pay attention to the sacred Mystery at work in your life.
Margaret Wheatley shares this in “So Far From Home” that:
When hikers are lost in the wilderness, they cling to their old maps far too long, driving themselves to exhaustion and despair, threatening their very survival. Unable to acknowledge that they don’t know where they are, they grasp wildly at any scrap of information that would confirm their old maps. But they are lost. And they need new maps. We, too, are lost in the wilderness of a brave new world. We didn’t intend to be here—we were working for a very different destination. But here we are and, like all lost people, we need first to acknowledge that we are truly lost so that we stop relying on outdated maps. If we can stop our frantic activity and see this new world clearly, we will be able to create new maps to make our way forward.
Recognize where you are now. Notice how your life is speaking to you so that you can make new maps to find your way home.
If you stick too close to the plan (your old map) you risk missing the uncharted expansive territory of your Soul.
Be willing to let go of what you would like to see happen in your life or who you are trying to change and instead, be receptive to what actually is.
In the Gospel of Luke, Martha was rebuked, not for her work, but for allowing her work to make her lose sight of love.
She was so distracted and busy wanting things to be different from what they were that she forgot to delight in the teaching and the teacher.
I’m here to help you remember.
Tell me, what have you forgotten to delight in?
Widening my lens & softening my gaze,
**I invite you to read this post again. Let it live. Breathe it in through your entire being. Meditate over it. Draw it, dance it. Embody it. This is something that you highlight and remember.
