It’s Day One of my Sabbath Leave, I arrive at my yoga class and these are my teacher’s opening words: “Let’s not rush today. Not rush our yoga practice.” They were perfect words for me for I was rushing in a tiny bit late! I’d moved quickly through the church talking to a few people and was going a bit fast and her words settled me right down.
Ahhhh….Let’s not rush.
This is a time in my life when I don’t have to rush. All week long I’ve been able to get places early, choose to book less into my day, and enjoy a slower pace of life. It’s just wonderful. I enjoy the feeling of not having to prepare anything and not having to lead in any way. I’m enjoying stepping back.
Right now, writing feels like the one thing I’d like to continue. I think I will continue to share my reflections through this time of resting and not rushing. Because I’m stepping back from my role as Community Leader during this Sabbath Leave, I’ll only communicate through Mystic in Motion, not through the Contemplative Fire database. If you want to join me on this journey, please subscribe on my blogsite. http://www.mysticinmotion.org.
Let’s not rush. Let’s enjoy this moment, being fully attentive to what it holds. Joy or sorrow.
Love and prayers
A Mystic in Motion

Anne: Your blog connected me with what I have been feeling the last few days. I may miss you, but at the same time I have a feeling of spaciousness. I shared with my Spiritual Director this morning that in one of my gospel meditations, I was standing looking over a vast empty landscape towards the horizon. And the phrase came into my mind, “there is a horizon”. And, as I looked toward it, the sky above it was pink, as it can be at dawn. It seemed to be indicating that this was the beginning of a new beginning for me, as this Sabbath leave may be for you. Many blessing, Helen Robinson
thanks Helen. that’s a lovely image of a new dawn over the horizon. Each day is new. May you receive all the blessings there are for you today.
