The original generosity prompt for Reverb14 was written by writer and artist Kira Elliot .
I'm embarassed to report I followed the theme but not the prompt.
I came upon this quote when visiting the Reverb14 blog from Debra Weber.
Pema Chodron's words were a gift, a reminder, a generous treasure.
I am continuing to refine my generosity, to hold on loosely and to leave space for all light to come in. To love, divinely and to be passionately detached always knowing the outcomes aren't my responsibility, they are a blessing no matter how they may be perceived to look initially.
I was feeling more than slightly wound up today so I did a chord release meditation. This is a meditation where one actively visualizes and practices releasing with love and generosity. The energy field is devoid of anger or lack, it is crisp and clear and constructive.
Now I feel much better, much more open, much more willing to be generous with space and love and no longer feeling the need to get tangled up! Tangles never feel good in the end though sometimes when I forget, when my memory leaves me, I find myself insisting upon making messes.
Not beautiful messes, either. Those are an entirely different category.
I have a feeling I will continue to release chords daily as a practice for this next chunk of time in my life, maybe a week maybe two maybe into the new year.
I’m up to some huge and marvelous tasks in the days and weeks to come. I need to generously restore myself and free space for the greatest good of you and you and them and them.
Thank you, Debra, Kira and Pema. There are no accidents, there is always beloved synchronicity.
