Our attention naturally goes to what is nearest. I see, smell and touch the matter at hand. My vision is acclimatized by my experiences so I essentially choose what I see.
But if proximity always wins – here is the greatest news of all. All that we see is outside of ourselves and all we feel is within. Don’t get much closer than that! And if our hearts are wide open…we see what we must to grow.
Love, Grace, Joy, Harmony, Illumination, Creativity… and all the other qualities of this nature are the stuff we are made of. It puts me at ease to acknowledge the imperceptibles are actually closer to me than than any person, place or thing.
Yes, sometimes I am still the Ringmaster. I want control. “Full steam ahead!” I shout as I stubbornly hang on to an old way of seeing things. And that’s what I usually get for my efforts — a full head of steam!
No, for this new life, which will be like none I have known before, I cannot create a detailed blueprint. I must get rid of the microscope and the binoculars and let my open heart “feel” the way forward.
Does this make any sense?
