” We’re lost in the woods.
The worst thing to do is to wander around looking for a way out.
Looking for a way out uses up our energy, makes us feel more and more frantic , and usually gets us even more confused and further from help.
The best thing to do when we are lost in the woods is to sit down, make a nice fire, and relax.
The best thing is to wait for help to find us.
If we’re bored, we can make messages on the ground for airplanes to read.
We’re lost in complexity.
Looking for space in our life, fills up the space in our life.
It exhausts us and makes us feel more and more frantic, and takes us further from help.
Let the spaciousness of life find us.
It is always here, which is precisely where we are.
Relax. help is very near.”
From The Shimmering World by Steven Harrison
These words give me pause for reflection each time I read them.
They are an inspiring guide to living life.
When we are confused or feel lost, then sit down and relax.
Find your Middle Ground
Knowing that help is here in the space we are already in…..
