“When we stop opposing reality, action becomes simple, fluid, kind, and fearless.”
Changes, even if done with mindfulness and love, can be hard. We recently moved and while most of the move has went fairly well. There is a sense of loss and frustration. Frustration because you don't know any of the streets and where they lead or that the local store carries different brands.
Frustration because you miss the place that nurtured you for 10 years and you wonder how you will get grounded in this new place. I have to say so-far this has been a kind place. Our neighbors are friendly and most people seem helpful. That is what we left. I guess the gap in my heart comes from not really "escaping anything".
Ten years ago, when I left home to go to college across the country, I was escaping childhood and economic restraints. While, my new location offers me some ease it also does not really serve as an escape from anything serious.
I wonder at my need to have a huge story attached to everything. Why can't I let this story unfold. Why can't I keep my heart open and soft? I don't know the answer to my question. All I know is that I am here, breathing and moving and that will have to do.
P.S. Have a sweet weekend.
