To Begin Again – It’s Cumulative

To Begin Again - It's Cumulative

It’s been fun for me to explore this topic and to recognize how beginning again weaves through my life and nourishes strands that I value.

Looking at an everyday thread of my life with shoshin, beginner’s mind, I spot a color I hadn’t noticed.  Opening to not knowing, I discover a new perspective.  Returning to practice and cultivating caring are quotidian acts that build upon themselves, small steps within longer journeys.

I think life satisfaction is like this, a cumulative process, built within the series of moments that become our days and our decades.

I’m closing this month and this topic with a link to a documentary video about an ordinary doctor prompted to make a simple yet big fresh start.  The video is called Slomo.  It’s about 17 minutes long.  Perfect perhaps with an afternoon cup and your feet up.   This is the link.

Thank you for being here when you are.  Thank you for the times you begin again.  May you voyage out into uncharted and wonderful territory.
