Waking up, this morning, felt different.
Here’s what I noticed:
Even though I was having some anxiety-based dreams, right before I awoke (where I was trying to find my way through a huge concrete compound, with lots of elevators, accompanied by people whose motives and feelings towards me were ambiguous, at best) …
This morning, I awoke towards peace.
And when my thoughts first turned towards this blog post (moments after awakening), the title that occurred to me was, “How to Move Towards Peace,” because I wanted to share this feeling and my newly hatched “wisdom” about it.
But I’m not sure whether I have the wisdom, yet, to formulate a “How To.”
For now, I just want to express gratitude that my natural inclination, this morning, was to move toward peace, to find moments of it before and as I was reaching consciousness, and to know that I might encounter moments of that in others, today.
I don’t need to encounter it today, but I am open to seeing it. In this moment, I feel open to seeing everything else I encounter today.
Including my son, who just woke up.
Thanks for meeting me here, today.
