‘When the soul lies down in the grass,
the world is too full to talk about.’
Rumi, Out Beyond
Have you ever felt challenged to test something?
a niggling, hanging-on
pestering idea that won’t let up on your brain?
telling it to ‘just hold on while I finish what I’M doing….’
Keeping myself consistently and controlling-ly in the drivers seat….
I’ve wanted to let SomEoNe elSe
be the boss of me 🙂
and yet I constantly step into the front of the line when an idea hits me
‘I’ve got this one!’ I shout…
As best I can I am turning over those reigns.
Shutting down the offices of ‘pbseggebruch in charge’ and
letting what comes bear it’s own course.
This is not to say I will be a doormat-to-doing around me.
I will respond purposefully and passionately to what prompts.
But not immediately.
And not with my own idea of how.
I am sitting comfortably in the back seat,
smiling at the driver through the rear view mirror,
and holding Johnny’s backward-stretched hand as he sits in the passenger seat on this one.
I am along for the ride for awhile.
Come what may~
Not the rest of placid peace of stagnation, but the rest of perfect motion~
‘If a person keeps growing, his or her false selves usually die in exposure to great light.’
Richard Rohr, Immortal Diamond
‘No one takes it from me because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. No one takes it from me but I lay it down of my own accord.’ John 10:17-18
*I will be away from social media, blogging and newsletters for three months as I reacclimate to being a full-time US-soiled citizen~
I’ll return somewhere in the midst of February as a new site launches, EncaustiCamp 2015 details roll out and the wonder of letting NOTHING BE PLANNED has evolved….wish me luck 🙂
