Slept the day away. Going to group meditation on Black Mountain tonight. Backed away from a writing industry commitment because it did not feel right to my soul. Sometimes, backing away is as important as jumping in. Sometimes we commit ourselves much too soon, before the other person even realizes we have made the commitment. Better to back away early than to hang on to something that just would cause anxiety, not lead to joy…I took many jobs that I should have been very hesitant to jump into because either I was not ready for it, or it was just a killer of my spirit. This has a problem for me in the past. Much less so today.
