Here’s what it means when you get out of the way of life: the pointed corners flatten. Things soften into a more cozy whole and that’s the hole of the title. You really are the womb you came out of. You give it vision and voice. You see and can be seen within its protective cupping cave. You can be happy here. Be happy.
I’ve been signing books lately, as GUEST HOUSE goes out into the world. On many are these words: “Time presses. Be yourself.” Now, you may know some selves you wish weren’t quite so free to be theirownselves. I contend that underneath the crippling conditioning and boring habits and lousy attitudes lives a band of beautiful children grown to adulthood in balance. In gratitude. In a quietly creative helpful manner.
Be good to your womb. Thank it for provisions. Take stock. See the good. Then stake your life on following your round-as-a-peanut will.
