30 Mar Off-Center
Just when I thought I had my ducks (er, chicks) in a row I am in yet another uncertain place. A growth spurt I suppose. During the growing pains clarity can be hard to come by. I am clinging to words I find, wisdoms I uncover and insights discovered and shared by those that have been through the fire and live to tell about it.
“Life is a good teacher and a good friend. Things are always in transition, if we could only realize it. Nothing ever sums itself up in a way that we like to dream about. The off-center, in-between state is an ideal situation, a situation in which we don’t get caught and we can open our hearts and minds beyond limit. It’s a very tender, non-aggressive, open-ended state of affairs.” – Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart
