The word pairing could go on. What if we learned that contradictions can be true at the same time. Knowing hope and heartbreak without judgement and can happen at the exact same moment.
What we carry forward is comes through our roots. The thread of the past seems to always weave into our own stories. The color red when worn is supposed to represent power. Maybe it’s really pain disguised as power and so maybe we all should wear red when our hearts are broken so others know. Everyone in the world would have to wear bit of red on every single day.
It seems to me clarity only comes when we’re willing to take time to pause and pausing take practice. (practice pausing) That could be a moment, one minute, a day, months or even years.
So I show up and try to be present and know what I treasure.
Knowing when it’s time to rest takes practice. Letting the storm clouds pass takes practice. Taking a moment to sit takes practice. Allowing yourself to take in a long slow breath takes practice. Now I’m following the rhythm of my life.
Learning to hold the pain and the beauty of life is a balancing act and is also allowing these feeling to be felt at the same time. Not easy but important.
Balance isn’t boring, it’s really being present.
In the words of Lao Tzu and looking to nature for inspiration and balance.
