From the Fire

While making a decision this morning, I was reminded of how important it is to breathe and to “let go” in discernment.

“It was a familiar feeling—tightness in my chest and the back of my neck. This told me it was time to breathe, trust, let go of attachment to outcome, listen deeply to what was going on, and test things that might or might not go well” (Gibran Rivera). Quoted from: Dressler, Larry, Standing in the Fire: Leading High-Heat Meetings with Clarity, Calm, and Courage (Berrett-Koehler Publishers; 1 edition (March 15, 2010) p. 29 .

Sometimes, mysteriously and synchronistically, we read something that is completely aligned with what we need to hear: the daily word.
