You once mentioned an inner connection being like a thread leading to that place in us where real transformation can begin.
Right, first thing is remembering to pick it up and then feeling the right tension. If we pull too hard it could break and if too slack we could easily get tangled up in it.
Tangled up? Then what?
Then we unravel and start over. Same thing if we try to force things. The key is constant awareness. But the real creative effort is to retrace, to find our way back to that place, that starting point in us. Creative because each time we begin from a different part of our mental/emotional geography. Creative because it's not a matter of rote formulas. The thread is always there but constantly moving, following us on our peripatetic treks.
Sounds like a lot of ground needs to get covered.
But in a potentially very useful way. Wherever we go a new region of mind is exposed, through that thread of connection, to the radiance of the Beloved within, to a new life-giving wholeness.
