So, no longer looking to 'expert' but as 'willing partners' now there is a conversation. A conversation indeed.
The coffee pot just beeped to say, "I'm ready."
The dog woke me saying, "I'm ready."
The dawn breaking rises with, "I'm ready."
And too, "I'm ready;" sitting here, tapping to the universe in musing thought. Ready in that place of just letting some jumble that runs around the mind and coalesces here in form of words, sentences, even paragraphs...
There is a running conversation about wasted emotion. That sense of a specific emotion being a waste. A specific feeling being a waste. In that conversation, the mistake is to apply the emotion in expectation of 'other.' To own it personally and to hold it as friend. The application to another ... now that is perhaps the waste. The application of an expectant 'should' through a feeling. "I feel like you should..."
I need so you should. You should. ... the expectant from outside that withers the inside. The shot from afar about the expectation of that place from afar with no ownership from here.
And of course, the mistake of engaging that expectation of another and being the voice of that expectation. To be caught between the two and failing both. The complete collapse of both sides of the expectation. What then?
Luckily, the coffee pot has beeped again, "I am ready."
So, off to pour. Then to practice this tap some more. In gratitude and peace, joy and love, with laughter and tears, mourning and dancing. The rich moment in all moments, this rich moment, shared so that all who are a part of the conversation can also ready of the great joy in sharing, tapping and knowing that, "I am ready" is across the board in the community that is. In welcome thanks. In welcome thanks.
