This week 'things' have been happening in my life. They are the big things we all face from time to time. They have huge implications on what we call 'quality of life'.
My unwillingness to JUDGE them as good or bad is saving my life right now. And this clarity would in no way be possible were it not for my daily immersion in Spark and my recovery program. Recovery permits me the luxury of not taking this 'pruning' personally.
In speaking with my Darling Sister Dawn last night, I was reminded how dispassionately nature responds to loss and even death. We cut back a tree so it can rebound...stronger, fuller, more beautiful than it was before. Certain animals fall prey to another so that the victor can survive in the wild another day and provide for its pack. Nature understands the ebb and flow of its existence. It takes none of its experience PERSONALLY, therefore, it is always at ease.
We humans, too can choose to live this way. I have chosen to live this way :-).
I am being cut back right now. And in sharing that ever so subtly the last couple of days here on Spark, I was awash in your love and support.
YOU PEOPLE...YOU GORGEOUS, AMAZING people...my circle of friends...have been SO VERY LOVELY. I am humbled by your compassion and kindness. The beauty and simplicity in your words and emotions toward me has been overwhelming. I don't know how to say thank you except to promise to offer the same back, and to pay it forward, in kind.
Thank you! I love you...each and every one of you!
love love love,
