Rest, Reach and Reverence
In Take Possession, I shared…“For me, these coming days and weeks and months even… will be about taking full possession and owning it all. I consider myself a long time practitioner and student of Responsibility and Resilience… and they have served me well. Still, there is another R ‘n’ R that I need more deeply practice now… Respect and Reverence… for my own Soul. It is time to Honor my own spirit… to be responsible to it, at a deeper, cooler level. This means rest and honoring that which I have walked through and felt. It means taking physical, mental and emotional care of me.”
This week, I have corralled all my April posts and posted on finding purpose, all in one place here. I am consolidating.
In life, we move from consolidation to expansion and back as our best and most sustainable growth. Constant “growth” is cancerous. There is a need for rest and reach alike. For now, and here, this week I am beginning an immersive rest, long overdue and needed. That said, consider Reverence…
… for one self and Soul. What would deeply respecting the value of one’s own life look like? What would it look like for you? I am coming to an ever increasing understanding of what it looks like for me. I will share more later.
For now, that is it for me.
Time to practice Reverence.
Peace, passion and prosperity…
