Waiting for the shift–waiting in mid-turn

I haven’t been writing lately because I just haven’t had anything new to say. I would have been repeating things I’ve already said at some earlier point. I feel like there’s an incredible shift underway, but I feel caught in mid-turn–in between. When I look around me, when I watch the news, it seems like we’re all in the same boat.

The hardest thing for me is accepting that there’s nothing to do. I know that everything is fine–in fact perfect. But, I know how to work at letting go, I know how to work toward some goal. What I don’t do well is to wait…to wait patiently. I begin to assume something must be wrong, that I should be doing something to make things move. My solution is to get into my ego. Clever! The result is that I still must wait, but instead of relaxing and playing (as the wise would do) I wait anxiously, uncomfortably.

I surrender. This is all in someone else’s hands. I’m going for a walk. I recommend you do the same.
