When you give yourself space to pause, it may be easier to see more clearly.
Tara Brach’s meditations that are about saying yes to what is, are grounding and gives you that moment to pause.
Not everything nor everyone needs a blasting light in their face, sometimes that subtle light of a candle is what’s needed.
Not every plant needs the same kind of light. Some need open shade, some need diffused light and some need light blasting at them all day.
I’ve just noticed that I’m breaking down a plant that needs diffused light and not direct – I hope I can turn it around.
Noticing what is needed is a step, but knowing what’s the right approach I believe is the key.
It’s easy to use a map to get to a particular destination, you go from point A to point B. Often times it’s necessary to follow the map. What if you have a willingness to let lost and try something different or it’s just not the right fit?
I’m not suggesting to reinvent the wheel if you don’t have to, but adding your own take on the map can be wonderful.
But we all need to be reminded that we may stubble, trip, fall trying to put our own spin on the map but getting up and trying as well as acknowledging when something doesn’t work and walking a way from it can be useful. I believe it’s called wisdom.
