I began this weekly meme at the beginning of summer when I read the book by Patti Digh. I found many of her statements so thought-provoking, that I decided to embark on a summertime quest to get to know myself better. I wonder if perhaps this meme has outlived its usefulness, however, Last week’s post did not seem to resonate with many of you, and this week’s personal issues have put my writing/contemplative life on hold.
Sometimes taking flight means letting go; letting go takes faith; faith takes letting go; it all requires wings….This year I needed to let go of a project I had been holding on to, one that was lucrative, but deflected my attention from my real work. I needed to really let it go, not pretend to let it go, or hold on to vestiges of it to keep me comfortable (page 147 in the Intuition section)
