I am reminded that we first need to find our balance, then take a step or two, and then walk, and perhaps run. I look at balance as a state of being that allows us to move in a certain direction from a space of confidence and anticipation beyond/within the here/now. The balance one finds in, for example, meditation, provides a quiet focus from which to move forward in the direction of our dreams. In balance, there is a stillness before action, a time for reflection and self-knowledge. I am streaming this with little understanding of where it is going. I think trusting the process is important in trusting the end result will be what we needed, if not what we wanted. I am curious about the direction in which this is going. I had thought that a continuation of streaming writing would lead me to a place different from that in which I find myself. Sudden realization: the process is the proof. I have released control. I am balanced gently between thought and thinking. There is quiet and anticipation. The direction I am going in is being led by intuition, trusting my intuition to bring me to the place I need to be. When we release control, after having found our balance, our center through the active stillness of seeking a message, we discern that the way is the message. Relying on intuition within the process presents a way of access. Streaming writing allows the message to appear before me and I then know the direction has been the correct one all along. We are moving toward accessing intuition as a tool for living in this time/space.
