Laughing at my mistakes….when reading the blog the other day I noticed I had typed this will be a sacred pace…. and then I corrected it to my meaning. But on reflection… we are definitely journeying at a sacred
s pace. ♥
How much easier it is sometimes, to know what we don’t want, like or need than what we do. I have found that this helps me be in touch with what its opposite and discover what I need and want.
Many of us have trouble articulating what we want, need or like. Yet we know what we don’t. It strikes me that often the expectation of what we don’t like, or think we need, is because of a negative experience. As a consequence I don’t want that experience to be given space.
Yet its value lies in the fact that I am reacting to it strongly. In that lies some clue maybe as to my aversions, or negative space…those options I may be blocking out in discernment.
Artists look at the negative space and become trained at looking at the unseen side, the hidden. We all gain insight when we see with new eyes.
My experiences, negative and positive, are all good, because they teach me the way I am to go. If I start with the dislikes, I am prompted more to uncover what I really want. It is great to have lots of ‘likes’ (even in a blog) but to hold knowledge of who I am and what shapes me is to embrace negative space also. To have a clear vision of my direction I must look backward at my path and see what it is that is shaping me in the negative and the positive.
