Realising this morning that I’ve been sitting in fear these past weeks.
I’ve been fighting it, resisting it, trying so hard to be right.
Worrying about long-term relationships; about the new and subtly about the past.
Through all the “what ifs” “shoulds” and “was I right?” I found a place this morning. A little bit of comfort, perhaps some resolution, and definitely a way forward from here.
From 13th Century philosopher Rumi:
“Out beyond the ideas of right-doing and wrong-doing there is a field – I’ll meet you there.”
This is the place where I will sit down, to spend some time, to talk through my life with other humans.
Because the biggest gift I can grant myself, and the biggest gift anyone else can give me right now, is to sit (with me) and consider my life so far – without judgement.
