Is it Time to Move?


“We must move from the realm of abstraction and dreams into the physical realm of risk and results. Risk is ultimately a birthing stage, often marked by sweat, blood and tears, along with moments of ecstatic joy. Something tangible becomes visible and begins to breathe. Our creativity finds form and substance. We sound a call for some new initiative and hope others will respond. Some go from gestation to birth with painful contractions, making this a difficult and anxious stage. Some enter this stage triumphant, just glad to be rid of doubt and indecision. For them, risk feels like a long-awaited adventure. Others feel timid and hesitant, afraid to act and yet more afraid to go back.”

-Marjory Bankson, The Call to the Soul

This season is all about transitions, change, upheaval, dying into life. Is there something you’ve been noodling, agonizing over, stuck in the mud about, wanting so badly you can taste it and…you have yet to move toward getting it, creating it, realizing it?

Well, ‘Tis the season!
