Gratitude, the breath that follows acceptance; I discovered this a few years ago. Some people that heard me describe it supported my observation. It seemed that most reactions were blank stares. I guess I had high expectations that this idea would have garnered more recognition. Taking satisfaction from this discovery has certainly been its own reward.
Grateful for the people in my life, I have seen some venture toward their resistance and witnessed a shift. One rejuvenated a languishing blog. I take energy from that effort. I like what I see and perhaps I might savor a new outlook as well. Won’t know what may be found until taking that first step.
I’ve had some ideas for topics since my momentum waned. Perhaps a list might be in order: Seamlessness, Desire vs. Aspiration, Love & Fear, The Manner with Which, Conditions, Poetry, What Else?
Reading my last post in July, it looks like I haven’t moved far from that state of mind. Probably more of circling than stuck, though. Hard to be critical of this waypoint of gratitude. So what is the source of the spark of that force to move. Even as I write this, the question surfaces, “Which direction?” Have I lost attachment to a result or am I avoiding taking action by getting stuck in mind mire? I know the “right action” is action.
