This is the page holder for the month of December, 2021. May you find something here to light your path and smooth your way!
The days that are lived unconsciously, routinely, regularly, have a sense of sameness about them that makes wherever we are a prison of our own making, where one day is indistinguishable from another, except that today it's roast beef, and yesterday it was fried fish. We break the monotonous spell by seeing what we look at, asking the questions that beg to be asked, saying the things that cry out to be said, knowing what we know, and what we do not know, and being intensely curious about what's what and why, and how it could be different, and wondering what would be best and what it would take to live in its service. By seeing what is called for in each situation as it arises, and doing what we can to do what is needed with the gifts/daemon/genius/shtick of our original nature when it is needed, the way it is needed, because it is needed, with nothing in it for us beyond the joy of doing it and the satisfaction of having done it, through all the days of our life. Living like this brings novelty to life, brings us to life, in the work of making life possible in ways it would never be possible if we failed to see what is being called for and did not act to make it happen with the virtues and specialties that are ours to share.
