When I sleep, whether it's for the night, or a nap, I shut down a mind that whirs all the time.
Other than the dreaming, I am still. I can let things settle.
When I wake up, I check to see how I feel, if the thoughts and feelings are different from the night before. If my mind has changed about the quest.
It doesn't. It remains as it is.
I have never been in this place, this space, before. I would have walked away from this long ago. I always did. Yet, the river in me flows to places and destinations known, and unknown. I trust the waters to carry me, not drown me. The waters will nourish me. I trust the waters.
