DAY 365+26

"The saying goes, 'The sage rests, truly rests and is at ease.'
This manifests itself in calmness and detachment, so that worries and distress cannot affect him, nothing unpleasant can disturb him, his Virtue is complete and his spirit is not stirred up." 

Chuang Tzu

After a stormy -yet, plentiful- year, I am finally having a rest. Not because I am doing nothing (physically speaking), but because I am finally relaxed after all the exertion

When many things are proving to be unhelpful this usually means that a change of mind is required. The problem is that we have to create the new mind frames using the old ones and this is complicated, but there is always a turning point where one starts to see clearly what one has to do, a sort of epiphany that show us the correct direction and then, making decisions become much easier

This has happened to me last month. The process of becoming aware of what was occurring in my life by getting in touch with myself (what I call here  my inner work) started long ago, but I have the feeling that I have conquered a new stage that will provide me with a deepest sense of serenity, based on joy, detachment and liberty

I have broken free from what was holding me back. Most of the tough issues have been processed, most of the hardest obstacles have been removed and now I can rest and prepare for a bountiful crop

I feel I am ready to accomplish whatever I dream of
...even when I still am not that wise
