Waiting for the world to act can be an excruciating exercise, especially for those of us accustomed to acting on the world to create our lives.

We see the world as a canvas against which we splatter paint–or draw predictable and recognizable figures. We believe it is our duty to create world and if if we do not act, the canvas will remain blank.


Is this really true?

What if we did nothing? What if we let others make the first brush stroke?

Would they?

Or would nothing happen?

THAT may be our greatest fear: that if we don’t do it, no one will.

But. Would that be so bad?


Live with a blank canvas for a while. Just sit with it and allow to appear what will…or not.
