Opening when the time is right
a question mark
waving in the wind,
holding to the fetal curl
and the safety
of the winter womb.

not the gentle
kiss of sun,
nor stream voice,
can coax
that frond
to unfurl
one single moment
before it does.

~ Danna Faulds taken from "Go In and In" Poems from the Heart of Yoga

Nature takes its time and

follows a deeper knowing

for survival and growth.

What a great lesson for each one of us.

You are exactly where you

are meant to be, right now.

There may be a questioning and

a holding on to the safety of the past.

There may be resistance

about what might happen next.

Yet, the time is always right

when we follow our deeper knowing

and the call of our inner nature.

  9. A great reminder, Val, to slow down and not be so obsessed with the fast-paced social media – trying to keep up and fill our minds with mindless stuff. πŸ™‚
