“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.” ~Joseph Campbell
I‘ve been pondering paths of health thus the inevitable decline of such. Though my story I have written many times, always things change, shift, surprise, causing me to wake up, if only for a glimpse unseen in the noble act of being on the path.
My path disappears if I just stop thinking about it. Free in the moment, arising with the sun, setting without thinking where to go to bed…
Mindfulness is both struggle and cure… peace wavers in the silence between. Thoughts, like clouds on the horizon blur sky’s vastness; such are my thoughts. Sun rises each day, casting shade a bit longer across the windows, grass and walls… Cooling in the late afternoons.
When I stop thinking, simply be… The wind blows softly as bees farm lavender and sage.
