This journey has had me look at what it is I need, want, and/or desire and as a result I’ve needed to become unattached to being attached. I’m starting a new book in my life which means it has to, in turn, look and feel different too; if they stay the same so will my life. It is disorientating which I know is also part of the process in creating a new life.
One day a friend told me that she was envious of the freedom and adventure I’m on. She did this when I wasn’t sure what route to take and was temporarily lost so I didn’t feel much freedom at the time! Then I had the epiphany: having freedom does not mean we are in control. We have the freedom, when we use it, to choose how we will respond or what meaning we make of a situation or person. I can’t tell you how freeing this was for me!
I’ve been told by a number of people, both before and during my move, that I’m very courageous doing what I’m doing from driving over 2,388 miles alone, moving to Tucson, creating my work in the Southwest, to leaving what I’ve known for the last 30 years.
And here’s what I wish for you ---
The courage to live the life you are here to live! If you don’t know what this is I encourage you to go within and discover and then listen to your inner voice and knowingness that is just waiting for you to ask. It is best if you listen with all of your intelligences – emotional, intellectual, imaginal, body, other senses and if this resonates with you, I will add other lifetimes and dimensions. Do you have questions about this? Get in touch with me and we can talk once I’m in Tucson.
