“That perfect tranquility of life, which is nowhere to be found but in retreat, a faithful friend and a good library.” – Aphra Behn
Retreat – Space to listen
I am on a retreat … something never done before but felt needed. My intention is to offer myself time … space … and opportunity to dip inside and hear what I already own. This coming year there are many things on my horizon, many important things, and of those several are unclear. Those that are unclear require my action but those actions remain simply a list of known possibilities from which an eventual choice must surface.
So my inner voice suggested a retreat. It spoke to me many months ago and I listened. I’ve learned to listen better to these inner voices. And I acted with the result this week living in a small yet incredibly beautiful setting overlooking the ocean and river, and offering the sounds of wind, surf, and seals. I’ve given myself a gift … space … opportunity … and now I simply will open myself to the adventure.
I’ll share it as days unfold. I hope both you and I find it at least interesting and at best filled with lessons for use along our journeys.
