Many sages and writers have talked about endings are also beginnings. What a lot of people don’t want to talk about is the space in-between. There are words for that space such as liminal, transitional, or transition.

endings and beginnings many times will create uncertainty

Something has ended or changed and you’re in the space of uncertainty and uncertainty doesn’t feel very good to most of us.

How do we get better being in the space of the in-between and not rushing the next steps?

Figuring out how to navigate our lives and being willing to be uncertain, it’s important to find out what works for us.

I believe learning how to express ourselves in a nondestructive way will help us to evolve to be more present and maybe even being comfortable in that awkward in-between space.

I use art and if I’m not sure what to paint I practice making brush strokes such as the Japanese calligraphy shodo or and enso. Sometimes it turns in to art and other times it’s simply practice.

Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them – that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like. Lao Tzu
