It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.
Bilbo Baggins, The Fellowship of the Ring
The truth is, indeed, that love is the threshold of another universe.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
We’re already in the new age, she said. What does that mean? I said, It means we can stop waiting & start living, she said. But after she left, I still waited a little while more just to be safe.
The purpose of the journey is compassion. The return is seeing the radiance everywhere.
Much as we may wish to make a new beginning, some part of us resists doing so as though we were making the first step toward disaster….We resist transition not because we can’t accept the change, but because we can’t accept letting go of that piece of ourselves that we have to give up when and because the situation has changed.
A friend recently taught me a beautiful Sufi practice. When changing activities, the practice is to put your hand on your heart, pause for a moment and say “Bismillah,” which means in “the name of God.” Anything can become a “Bismillah moment.”
Our only security is our ability to change.
If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.
