We are in the midst of two weeks of beginnings - classes, gatherings, patterns, relationships - and I am too in the heart of it to be able to reflect as I feel I am needing to...Details are falling into place for our various new commitments, but there are other facets that are needing more attention - not the where and how but the connections we are making or are trying to forge with people.
This has never been a difficult aspect of life for me, but it seems that during this season of late summer and early fall I am immersed in the more complicated layers of Relationship. Some of it is personal, and most of it has to do with how to balance your personal relationships with the greater community web. This is challenging me and I am feeling unsettled much of the time, anxious and taking great care before stepping my next step.
I am grateful for enough perspective to see this as a challenge of this moment, hoping that it will lead me to a deeper understanding of how things work between members of a community who may not see eye-to-eye but have a common goal in mind.
I am torn between the high spinning of anxious feelings and the draw towards being still and waiting, listening, at a time of year when I am usually off and running, spurred on by the winds and the swirling motion of fall...
I am trusting that by moving slowly and listening for clarity, threads will untangle and we can begin the work of enjoying fully the glory of this season.
