after yesterday and before tomorrow

6-everybody-should

‘The desire to change was meaningless if I couldn’t find a way to make change happen.’*

‘Yesterday shows another day is here.’**

Sometimes we need to be quiet and ask where something is flowing from and where it’s flowing to.

A gift has a yesterday, today, and tomorrow.  It comes from outside of my life, from somewhere else, from someone else.  For a time it remains with me and I must make it mine somehow shape it, personalising it, making more of it – this before I can give it on.

All the time, the gift is becoming more.  It’s a “yes and” game.  What have I received?  How will I shape it?  Who will I give it to?

Sometimes we need to be quiet and ask where something is flowing from and where it is flowing to.
