Be the Tumbleweed
I’m in a situation where I can be a presence of light for others during a challenging time for all of us. I have been trying to gently guide our direction, knowing that there is a path through this of peace and love. But I feel like I’m failing when a more difficult path is chosen. And then a huge Aha rolled through me:
Peace and love can be the path, no matter the direction.
A tumbleweed rolls wherever it’s blown, spreading its seeds as it goes. A tumbleweed doesn’t force itself to go to a certain place in order to then share what it has to offer.
Actually, it’s a tumbleweed’s job to not dictate the direction. Its gift is to share of itself no matter where it goes.
May I offer whatever I have wherever I’m taken today. Amen.
What in your life have you been trying to guide, for a holy process? Can you still guide by rolling with What Is, rather than by leading on a desired path?
