The last couple of months have been a dose of intense creation for me. Stretching my talents and abilities and even the construct of time, beyond what I thought possible. A long list of things that required doing - that required to be done were before me.
And then the other week happened....
I was reminded by two people on the same day, in different locations around the world who had no idea of what I was up to - of the joy creating can be.
Ahhh....It was exactly what I needed to hear.
That flip-of-the-switch moment where you feel like you have a mountain to climb, then you see the mountain in all of its exuberance, asking to contribute to you and you to it. Suddenly the mountain is not daunting anymore...it's an invitation to receive; to the adventure of living you have been asking for.
And the once problem or the thing you had been resisting is now a possibility to something greater. The ease and the fun shows up even when that list of things that requires to be done continues to grow.
I know now that list is not a To Do list...It's a Contribution list.
What could our lives be like if we allowed those tasks, those things we've already decided will not be fun, to contribute to us, and us to them? I know for me there is a wondrous ease that shows up every time I am willing to receive.
What I've come to know in my own life is I can hear the same message fifty times yet on the fifty-first a switch might flip and a new awareness is born.
