Oh the joy of feeling invigorated with hope and the challenge of not getting what you wanted: Relationships seducing you, and then not being what you thought they were, work not bringing out the best in you, body doing its dance when you would rather it just sing, meditation restlessness, children texting not calling. I imagine you can relate and add to the list of what hasn’t happened that you really want.
Here are a few thoughts from our Skype group that they said I could pass on to you:
For me, I appreciate that I have cultivated a meadow of helpers that includes the unseen. The other night I was longing for someone who couldn’t be available to me. I cried. From somewhere the thought arrived, “go outside and look at the moon.” I did. It was full, bright and shining at the top of the trees, lighting the roads.
Oh wow! That unexpected beauty fed me amazement and a reminder of the bigger picture. I did feel better. I could let go of what wasn’t available and put my heart in line with the unknown.
When disappointment shuts me down, I choose kindness and sometimes buying a new red lipstick. What do you choose? What are you cultivating that builds your inner world so that no matter what is happening in the outer, you come back home to YOU?
