When we live faithfully trusting ourselves
to what we take to be our life,
our life becomes increasingly apparent
in the life we are living.
We don’t have to know what we are doing.
We only have to have a good faith commitment
to putting ourselves
in accord with the life that is ours to live.
It’s like this:
Mountain Goats are suited to mountains,
and Antelope are suited to grassy plains.
Plop Mountain Goats and Antelope down
in the piedmont between mountains and plain,
and they will figure it out
without knowing what they are doing.
We will gravitate to where we belong
and take the shape our life requires of us
simply by giving ourselves to the search
in a “Me? or Not Me?” kind of way.
