I have been "The Queen of More" for a great deal of my life. Sometimes, that desire for more has served me in spaces of creation. But in other times, that desire for more has brought me to my knees. I doubt that I am alone. This is what is true for me now.
I am sitting in the richness of moments. My legacy of wanting more is something that I am looking at with fresh eyes.
In truth, I find the richness in my memories are not of the "More" that I was seeking. They are in moments. It's the moments that keep me company. It is the moments that I allow into my body, heart and soul that I remember.
It is a kiss on a street corner. An experience with a lover at a bar, connecting eyes, a smile and a wink of recognition with a stranger on the street. It has been on retreats, on a massage table for a session, a conversation that is full between friends.
It is the bites.
So many of us get lost in making plans and tying things down in our search for groundedness. But that is not where we will find aliveness. Aliveness is in the moments. In the possibility of opening to just that.
In flying in groundlessness, in letting go of our attachment to more we may find true pleasure. If we can allow it.
Now that would be doing something different.
