just sayin' ...


 When you find your head has been stuck way up Shiva's ass (the master of change/transformation/destruction) the best thing to do - the only thing I can do - is look down.


Look down and see the earth you stand upon.




 

 


See the life you are in the middle of living.








Take a deep breath, let out a long, noisy exhale and settle into yourself.

Settle into this moment. 

And before taking a step, just notice the gifts awaiting your presence.  They may be at your feet - 








 Or in your mailbox - 









 with secret messages for you alone.









 Receive it all with gratitude because, well, it has been dark up in Shiva's ass but the contrast allows you to really appreciate the light.


And then recognize the journey begins here. now. This moment.









Which is the only moment that matters. 



 
 


"Do I dare
Disturb the universe?
In a minute there is time
For decisions and revisions which a minute will reverse." 
- T.S. Eliot, The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock
