I just returned from a week at a South Carolina beach. While there, a life-long friend of mine called on my cell. When he heard where I was he responded, “Imagine, practicing what you preach.”
Yes, balance is ever more important in the 21st Century. And I realized something very important on this beach trip – this was not a vacation. This was yet another very important ‘thing to do’ in the reality of my journey.
In that light, I share with you a journal entry from the beach:
May 3, 2007
Soothing sound of the clap of a wave … one after another.
She says to me, “Go and do what you’re supposed to do. Go do what you ought – because I believe in you. Just don’t forget to come back to my healing song, the wideness of my love, and the touch of my soul.
Go back to your home, and your ongoing life … and remember me in the things you’ll do there – in the things I’ve asked you to commit to- your work, your play, your love.”
It’s time to take some things to a new level, a new depth, a new breadth.
