Realized this morning that what I didn’t say last night is that I do strongly suspect that unless it’s protracted (when it may be depression, lethargy or laziness) I DO think there’s a purpose in liminality. As an aside – isn’t that a lovely word?
|Part of Speech:||n|
|Definition:||the condition of being on a threshold or at the beginning of a process|
|Etymology:||Latin limen ‘threshold’|
Just as a limen, threshold, provides a transition from one room or space to another, I think these little breathers are serving to provide a pause.
My friend Mary made some suggestions to last nights post “In Between” (see comment stream) on things I could do, and I think she hit the nail on the head with the self-reflective ones.
So for me, who actually PREFERS to be the doer of all things, I think the key is to not try to lash myself into productivity or attempt to meditate, I think seeking the middle way advised by the Buddhists, is to combine them by writing (satisfies the doer) about what’s going on, DOING some self-reflective (satisfies the spiritual seeker) exercises. And prayer – asking God to show me what I’m on the doorway of so I can cross into the next space at the right time. For me the right time is always NOW! but I’ve noticed She seems to have other ideas and seems to have my highest good in mind.
