Come Away!

Come away

He said to them, “Come away to a deserted place all by yourselves and rest a while.” —Mark 6.31 Come away. The world will turn without you. Let go of the “have to,” the should, the ought. Notice what you set down: the weight of expectations, the feeling of proving yourself to yourself. Notice how you feel, unburdened: At peace? Anxious? Free? Afraid? Waiting for the gavel to drop? Notice… What if it’s OK? It’s OK. Practice this sabbath exercise, this holy desertion so you may take it with you into the crowd. • You honor what is in your hands only if you hold it lightly. • Come away to the place of solitude where you already are, waiting for you. _________________ Steve Garnaas-Holmes Unfolding Light July 14, 2021
