There are those times in life when you feel like if you sit for a moment, and stop spinning the plates, everything will come down smashing around you. And, you’ll have to clean it up. You know it won’t, of course, that nagging voice that cautions you to slow down, but the momentum is building like a child’s science project. The volcano is about to erupt on cue.
That’s life lately. Life is moving fast and wonderfully. I shifted gears in a weird way, and did some things I said I would never, could never. But I can. I must. We all do things that surprise us once in a while, I guess.
Like riding a bus, I’m shifting side to side and swaying along a path that, no matter hard I try to define, is completely obstructed. Passengers block my view. So I trust. I brace myself. And when necessary I lean on supports.
It’s taking me on a journey, and you know I’m a fearless adventurer.
Buddhists encourage us to find harmony within without ground beneath our feet. I can’t say it comes naturally, but I’ve felt this peace, and I know it’s not out there, but rather, in here for me. And you.
