A Pause -

This is what I am feeling today, that I have to stop so my soul can catch up.

I'm sure you've read this before, but I offer the words of Bruce Chatwin.

    "A white explorer in Africa, anxious to press ahead with his journey, paid his porters for a series of forced marches.

     But they, almost within reach of their destination, set down their bundles and refused to budge.

     No amount of extra payment would convince them otherwise.  They said they had to wait for their souls to catch up."

Henry Miller said, in The Wisdom of the Heart, "The new work of art does not consist of making a living or producing an objet d'art or in self-therapy, but in finding a new soul.  The new era is the era of spiritual creativity .... and soul making."

            May we honor soul-time as we need.   Today, is my day to allow dormant seeds.
