Being clear about who we are in terms of our original nature and innate virtues/traits/characteristics, our specalities and our interests-- and open to/aware of each situation as it arises, attuned to what is happening and what is being called for, positions us to be who we are and to offer what is needed out of the gifts and talents we bring to the occasion. We follow this situation up with the same approach to every situation that makes up a day, a week, a lifetime-- as we live to serve who we are and what we have to offer to the time and place of our living throughout the time left to be lived. This leaves no room for boredom, aimlessness, malaise, tedium and nothing to do. Noise, complexity and drama are forces of destabilization and loss of direction. Emptiness, stillness and silence return us to "the still point of the turning world," for reorientation and redirection, helping us to remain on track, aligned with the way and at one with the flow of life and being.
