There something about walking a staircase like this
that both makes me feel alone, but also headed somewhere very special.
Recently in an email from Bella Grace Magazine the following came.
David Whyte writes, “One small thing I’ve learned these years, how to be alone, and at the edge of aloneness how to be found by the world.” To heal, we must feel what we feel. Sit down in aloneness and cultivate our capacity to be with everything. This is done little bit by little bit with patient, persistent effort. Gradually, we trust in ourselves—in our enough-ness—even when life is difficult. And from this trusted “edge of aloneness,” we connect with the world in a more wholehearted way.
Does this resonate with you?
Do you sometimes feel alone?
Then the word "enough" pops in there
and I realize that those little things make life "enough".
There are many days on the "edge of aloneness",
especially when I am stuck at home too long,
where I must step outdoors
and savor nature
then surround myself with others.
Sometimes it takes an effort just to notice what is needed
and then to act on that need.
Definitely I must embrace movement wholeheartedly
to rid myself of "aloneness" for another day.
It is the acknowledging and then acting
that rids us of feeling alone for sure!
