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
