Have patience. The pendulum
that swung too far in one
direction will swing back.
At the moment of its turning,
everything hangs in the balance.
All the momentum of past actions
is suspended in mid-air, and
those who care about what happens next are poised with it.
There is a long and anxious
pause before the motion shifts,
and then the sense of free fall,
when the world is turned on
its head and nothing is known
or normal. Have patience then,
and do not rush to either extreme.
The way will paint its own arrows
on the trees if you can wait for clarity.
~ Danna Fauld
The pendulum of life is always moving and shifting. Yet, with patience, the pendulum also comes close to the ground and finds stillness there. In that moment it finds its middle ground. This is the place where clarity and direction appear.
