Who am I in the world that I so long to be that the ache hurts, yet when I am in touching or grasping distance, I close my fingers knowingly too soon?
Yet now we are in a different context and with different resources and choices available. If we can reach out and hold the tension just a little longer, the world turns with us, and we are pulled on.
By gently moving into the different conversation, into what might be a new or bigger identity and sense of self; by keeping our hand open just a little longer, open to a brush with possibility, then we might experience the magnetic attraction that always accompanies something worthwhile.
The is a titration movement, just a little then a little more, no more that might crack the spell, no less that might lose the tension.
Approaching hard edges with softness.
