Unforced rhythms: Being and the blessings of doing nothing… well maybe…

So having made my decision not to go to Greenbelt I find myself blessed, blessed by the chance of a lie in, no pressure to do anything or be anywhere. Blessed by unexpected conversations, blessed to allow creativity to thrive, blessed to potter about in my garden, to read, to be….

It has taken me weeks to connect with simply being, and in the being while I have been doing it has flowed from a centre that I have struggled to create and live from, maybe I have discovered at last the unforced rhythms of grace that I so often preach about and encourage others to find.

To find the unforced rhythms we have to acknowledge our own rhythms, those may include eating, sleeping, working the use of social media, the pressures of family and friends… and then acknowledge the call to let go, to let go of our own expectations, our own and those we perceive from others.

We are so often driven through life by our internal demands, demands that fail to allow us to be and to become, to be, to flourish and to grow….

So I have gardened, bringing order from the chaos, I have read in the sunshine, and snoozed in the sunshine, I have chatted with friends, and I have created…

No pressure, just being, and noticing the unforced rhythms calling me to be whole…

Maybe at last I have settled into sabbatical just in time for it to come to an end….

I hope I will take the lessons with me…

About Sally C

How do I describe myself, I am not what I do, (I am a Methodist Minister), I am not who I am related to (I have 5 wonderful children, 2 lovely granddaughters and 2 lovely grandsons). I am a seeker truth, a partaker of life in all it's fullness and a follower, sometimes stumbling, sometimes celebrating of the Christian pathway. I seek wholeness, joy and a connectedness to all things through a deep reconciliation with the God whose love blows my socks off! I love walking, swimming and photography, I dabble with paint and poetry...
