Seasoning

The flow experience, like many others, is not “good” in an absolute sense. It is good only in that it has potential to make life more rich, intense and meaningful; it is good because it increases the strength and complexity of life.*
(Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi)

Then when the grip of some long-enduring winter mentality begins to loosen, we find ourselves vulnerable to a flourish of possibility and we are suddenly negotiating the challenge of a threshold.**
(John ‘Donohue)

There is more of the seasons in us than we allow: life-in-all-its-fullness including winter and autumn as well as spring and summer.

We have to be vulnerable to possibility.

*From Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow:
**From John O’Donohue’s Benedictus.
