In 2010, I received Word/intuition that it was time to journey inward for awhile. In October, I drew the boundary and started the journey in earnest. It has been amazing, slow, fast, mind-blowing, mind-numbing, and routine at various times, and sometimes many of the above at the same time. I also received Word/intuition that although the journey itself doesn’t end, the time of “hermitage”, so to say, can be let go in Spring of 2012.
Whatever will I do with myself? I find I don’t want to answer that question. Perhaps not wanting to answer is a good thing, a healthier response than past reactions of planning things to the nth degree, which was mostly an attempt to control everything out of fear of the unknown.
The journey continues through this dry Texas heat, this season of wildfires. I try not to let myself get too spun up by worry for the health of the land and its beings. The pain & suffering is real, but also these cycles of dryness and conflagration have happened time and time again. In the meantime I conserve water tightly. I take good care of the plants and the domestic & wild animals around me. I cherish those souls who are sticking around despite my dearth of social outreach lately. And I continue listening, and developing what I intuit/Receive.
