try to be here. Which as you know, is the hardest place to be. Can you be present to this little bit of now? Get curious …*
You’re sitting looking at a blank page … space … hour.
How are you going to fill it?
Your mind goes blank.
You look around for some assistance.
Who can help?
What is there to use?
Then your remember.
It’s not what is outside that matters, but what is inside you.
‘If you learn to listen to your curiosity, you will find that you become curious about those things that are different and new. […] Possibilities and the unknown, not the predictable or obvious, make you curious. […] Curiosity pursued is one of the things that allow serendipity to happen.’**
You have overestimated what you need from outside and have underestimated what you carry within, all that has brought you here.
So you bring out your journal, take out your pen and begin to write and to draw:
‘In that special silence, you can hear or see, or get a stronger sense of something that wants to happen that wouldn’t be aware of otherwise.’^
