When we lose the flow, the flow of life, the joy of life, the zest for living, the sense of being one with a mission, with a calling, with a reason for being here/now... When we lose that, how do we get it back? If we have never had it, how do we find it? We allow it to find us! It could be a cup of coffee that is calling, and a cinnamon roll, but whatever it is, we know it is time for it, and are eager to be at one with the game which is "afoot." When we lose that, it is merely a matter of emptying ourselves of all that is stirring within. An easy way of doing that is two rounds of inhaling for a count of five, exhaling for a count of five, remaining between breaths for a count of five and inhaling for a count of five. Throughout that process, we are generally empty of everytthing but the count. At the end of the second round, we empty ourselves even of that. Simply remain in that emptiness, dismissing everything that comes to mind, giving ourselves over to the emptiness, the stillness, the silence, listening for what calls our name, ignites our fire, invites us to action, the way a cup of coffee might, or cinnamon roll...

We are going to be in Raleigh and then Chapel Hill later this week for a family wedding on Mike’s side.
If you are around on Thursday or maybe Friday are you up for a visit? I don’t know exactly what our schedule will be, but it would be nice to see you if the stars align.
Hi Kat, We are living in Charlotte now and would love to take you and Mike out to lunch either day if that fits into your schedule. Meeting at a restaurant would keep you close to the road if you have to hit it in a hurry to be at the next place on the schedule!
