Blissful bumps along the way
Feb 05, 2015
My birthday weekend was colored with all sorts of twisty turns and yet there’s that certain bliss one carries throughout the day that can’t help but hold you in a state of grace.
I realized a while ago I had two birthdays – my birth date and my soul date. On my soul date, the day after my birthday, I knew what I had to do. It had been way too long since my toes touched the edge of the sea and I had pointed my camera at constant wave action.
Long ago a tea leaf reader told me I needed to spend more time at the water to open up to the expansiveness within me. I took her advice and found myself living in a cottage by the sea for almost 12 years.
Now I live close enough I can feel the ocean only a few miles away and I am reminded of that soothsayer’s comment as I make my way to experience that peace.
I learned this week the so-called confusions along the way help give me profound clarity and I realize I need all those bumpy parts to make my path poised to power-down the trail.
power-down the trail.
