What is calling to you?
What calls to you to deepen engagement in your own life? I'm not talking about the "have tos" - I'm talking about the "want tos."
When you quiet your activities and your mind enough, can you may hear the soft whisper of the universe? Or the loud call to action of your community?
And when you do hear the call, what do you do with it? There are many choices...
You can back away out of a feeling of overwhelm.
You can automatically dismiss what you are hearing because of a patterned belief in insufficiency.
You can fear risk and change enough to slam the door of engagement shut tight.
Do you grab it by the tail and ride the waves of life - without guarantees about what will come next

Deep engagement is slow medicine. What is calling to you?
