Now retired, I rarely engage in much beyond the joys of simply living my truly blessed life! However, every now and then, I am invited to be part of something that is so compelling to me I feel The Call to simply engage and see where it goes.
Recently, I was invited to be in conversation with Dean Walker on the Poetry of Predicament podcast. In the wonderful company of Deb Ozarko; and with the great freedom to be able to just wander and wonder about our current structure of ‘reality’, it was a joy to participate in an expansive line of enquiry – for its own sake. Imagine! No box of problem/solution. No expectation of embracing the journey in order to reach a predetermined destination! Just a small collective of Souls both willing and able to dive in and see where it goes.
If logic, analysis and structure are imperatives in your life, don’t waste your time on this one. However, if you’re up for moving beyond the need for answers and into the domain of expanded lines of enquiry, you just might enjoy listening to this one as much as we did creating it.
This experience reminded me of the notion of ‘radical evolution’ – a concept that I worked with as far back as 2013. The notion persists and may well be more relevant and imperative now than is was way back then. Consider the following:
“Choose wisely who you spend your time with! Your conversations shape your reality. What you allow yourself to talk about, becomes the truth by which you live. Small conversations make for small lives. Look around you and find someone with whom to engage who will make room for the bigger, uncertain, chaotic, life-altering conversations that will make room for YOU to emerge into your own potential! Stop putting it off – you have little to lose and much to gain!” (Read the entire post here)
We can choose or we can continue to wait until we feel the insistent, powerful hand of Gaia pressing into our lower back and pushing us into our destiny. Either way, we can no longer stay where we are.
