I am emerging from the whirlwind of the holidays. Though wonderful, they tapped my already low energy reserves from a post Thanksgiving cold. Taking things slower was the remedy. Very timely, then, is this practice I have adopted of choosing a word to contemplate and explore through the year. A friend of mine calls it dancing with a word...don't you love the interconnection that evokes? After time spent in process before the holidays began, Embrace choose me during a walk along the bluffs above the ocean several days ago. Yes! It feels right to embrace what the moment brings. I am ready for the journey.
The true condition of mind is like the sky, like space: without center, without edge, without goal.
