There is a place that lives in the space between
action and rest.
(Credit: The Wisdom of No Escape is the title of a book
by Pema Chodron – well worth reading)
For me, it’s the place of walking without talking.
Or driving in the car on an open highway without music or sound.
I used to enter it when I knit a lot…hours of jewel toned
colors in my hand – repetition and creativity combined.
I believe we don’t often access that place
these days. There is always a device to fill
the void – and thus the openness of “almost boredom”
almost never had a change to visit anymore.
I read a post the other day that asked if we thought
people have stopped dreaming – as in settled for the
mundane and given up hope for something different.
I don’t necessarily thing so. What I think is that
the time and space for dreaming and creating from
those dreams is lacking in the flow and speed and
distraction of life these days.
What do you think?
Love if you would share your thoughts in the comments below this post.

PS. We as humans often expand our
conscious awareness through conversation
and can take the expansion and bring it
into our work and our lives.
Vision Sessions are for exactly that..
and they are complimentary.
