Lines are drawn. Places taken. I know who I am, how I see things and what I stand for.
Strange phenomenon going down.
Has anybody else noticed how the lines of demarcation seem to be shifting? That you’re no longer solely in ‘this camp’ – but maybe in two at once? Or several?
All of a sudden, finding yourself having more in common with strangers than those you’ve known for decades?
Really surprised me when I first began to notice this – my affinity with inhabitants on the ‘other side’ of my identity.
Borderlines are getting blurry and my self-concept is stretching its arms out to meet them. Odd, how comfortable this feels.
A freedom from the tight spaces of conformity and presumption.
Auto-pilot is suspended.
Beginner’s mind takes over.
Question to self: Am I releasing the one who ‘knows for sure’? (Or, at least keeping a closer watch if it shows up?)
Whenever I’m captivated by certainty, I meet a locked door.
My panoramic vision shuts down. The big picture is denied.
But when I welcome life afresh, at the twists and turns of each moment, circumstance is reborn.
Yielding to life’s flow delivers me into the immediacy of right now.
Into an endless opportunity of expanded potential for more Love.
Which can never be anticipated.
Each breath, a new beginning.
Gosh that feels liberating!
Tight, old shoes are cast off. Replaced with boogie boots and a wide-open dance floor.
A mind that is full of conclusions is a dead mind, it is not a living mind. A living mind is a free mind.Krishnamurti
No matter what god or doctrine you believe in, if you become attached to it, your belief will be based more or less on a self-centered idea.Shunrya Suzuki
