The Living is the Key

Before I dive into my last set of posts for this series, I’ll confess this has been quite an experience for me. For over 30 years, I’ve gone through an inner upheaval every 7 to 10 years. It always involves revisiting old thoughts, ideas, and beliefs, and then delving more deeply into other realms that I’ve only touched on in the most superficial way before.

Sorting through it all and coming to some new awareness … always deeper … simpler.

At the end of each phase, I always have a wish that I could just settle onto my path, without the continual progressing, falling off, circling back around, and then more jerky moves forward. SIGH. But this seems to be my rhythm. Searching, arguing, testing, living.

And the living is the key.
Because at the end of each phase of renewal, the desire to set aside other input grows stronger, stronger, stronger; the urge to set aside all the reading and thinking and analyzing and just do. Be.

Builds. And builds. And Builds.

And this is where I’ve come to again.
