Mark Nepo...MY HEART IS ON FIRE
He said a couple dozen things that made my heart leap and joy....just a few:
"I went through a door and once I went through it there was no way to go back...that place didn't exist for ME anymore"
"Whatever opens us is never as important and what we are opened to..."
"A cocoon for a butterfly after it has left does not mean it is false, only that the cocoon has served its purpose and has moved on...." WHOA. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa.
If you love to sing...you must SING! SO...since I love to DANCE...I MUST DANCE!
I loved when he said " When we come, we are asked to learn to ASK for what we need only to practice ACCEPTING what we are given". That is a duality I know personally. I may be close to perfection in the ASKING...in Accepting the lines are fuzzy..."IN THERE" somewhere is MY freewill and my abilities and my efforts and MY MY MY....will I one day have the trust and faith to just let life come to me? He speaks of SURRENDER and how it is like a fish in the current and just giving into it...he talked of how we all have our current and own flow. So many currents I am strong enough to breech. So much flow.
Now to biking terms...I LOVE to be in and feel the draft of a powerful guide...I also enjoy the unobstructed view of taking the lead. I JOY that each of us has that unobstructed view of traveling our own lives no matter who may be the guide of the draft we feel.
Will you go back now and read his poem again?
You must give freely.
FEAR WASTES AIR...think that is going somewhere BIG outside by the pool...
Love you messy, love you deep, love you REAL,
