... I think of my own life and the choices I have. Maybe I can offer as much if I visit and speak with three or four groups a year rather than saying yes to all invitations ... Maybe I can offer more to those I am with if I am not so tired, if I leave room to embody more consistently the stillness I talk about instead of hoping to touch a moment of full awareness during my morning practice before heading off to do what I or others think is required. Maybe it doesn't matter if I always and exclusively get to do what I love if I can more consistently love and find joy in wherever I am by allowing each movement - whether washing the dishes, writing a book, or speaking to a group - to come from a deep and sacred spaciousness within.
