Waiting for Direction
The best results occur when we stop trying
to force things to be the way
we think they should be.
When we try to force something to be different,
we often overcompensate
and create a new problem.
Sometimes it is better to just stop doing
what we know is not working
and take some time to re-center
and reconnect with the core truth within us.
Then the course of action we set
will be more organic, congruent, and meaningful.
We all need time to breathe and to be.
It’s a sacred time, a time when we gather
our power and our direction.
If we don’t take this time,
we may act prematurely or impulsively.
Our actions may lack creative power
or they may result in unfortunate consequences
we did not anticipate.
