Give me some space!
I love a good podcast! I have about 4 that I listen to on a weekly basis – Big Magic with Elizabeth Gilbert, Learn French by Podcast, Smart Passive Income with Pat Flynn, and The RobCast with Rob Bell. I like them because they are just the right length to learn some great stuff and very portable since they are all on my phone.
Anyway, I was listening to a RobCast this morning. In this podcast, Rob is talking about “The Lost Art.” He is specifically referring to the lost art of creating sermons that matter to people. Not because they are so eloquent, or because they use alliteration in the best way, or even because he made up the funniest joke to illustrate the point. No. What Rob is referring to is the lost art of creating space for people. Space to process loss. Space to wonder. Space to be sorry. Space to feel grace. Space to be connected with other people. Space to experience God.
As I listened to Rob talk about this lost art of creating space, I realized that this space is something I truly long for deep down inside. And I think if we all take a moment to pause and take inventory, we ALL long for this space. Who doesn’t need space in the middle of life to process the experience of life and to connect with God?
And then, as I thought about it some more, I remembered something. I remembered that this deep longing for space is PRECISELY what drove me to create Iridescent Dragonflies in the first place. I wanted and needed space to facilitate my inner transformation. I knew that life was calling me to be more than I am, but I needed space to create that transformation. So – why not create it myself? And I figured if I wanted it and needed it, there must surely be others who want and need the same thing.
What about you? Are you experiencing that deep longing for space? Perhaps there are some things that you need to work through, or maybe recover from. Maybe you are ready to move forward into a new part of your journey and you need to pull back and re-group before moving forward.
Let’s do this. . .together!
So, tell me – what is it that is burning deep down? Do you long for space? Do you need a new meditation practice to help you dive deeper into your quiet, still center? Do you simply need some community while you transform?
Tell me what would really help you along your journey and let’s create it together!
