Sit with the tension.
In yoga, one of the keys is to sit with the tension. Don't be in a hurry to go to the next move. Let the stretching work its magic.
"We have all winter to work on those things." A friend quipped in reply to my frustration with not being able to get into a project.
Am I in too much of a hurry?
Last night when I was writing part one of this post, I kept pondering two words.
How could I clear my mind, will and emotions from the tentacles of regret, planning and the feeling of too little time for all I want to do?
At 4:00 a.m. these words floated to the top of my mind.
Sit with the tension. Sink into it. Stop fighting your life with all its interruptions and people stuff.
Is that the same as letting go?
Is it simple trust?
Trust in myself. Trust in God. Trust in the process.
