Time lapse photography has always fascinated me. Not only can you capture an image, you get to see how that image unfolds over time. The subjects I love are the ones that evolve and expand. So it is with a flower…budding, blossoming and then coming into full bloom. And so it is with me. It is my nature to express all of the possibility that is me.
As much as I love the concept of unfoldment, somehow I quite frequently resist it. Maybe it is just willful me, insisting on having my own way, but I believe it is more than that. There seems to be an invisible band encircling my possible expansion, one that keeps me from blooming. And just as I recognize that constriction, I realize that it is of my own making. Yes, I am simply ornery at times, insisting on keeping myself just as I am. (despite my dreams of being more) But the real truth is, I am afraid of my potential. I am more comfortable with the small me than a great and expansive me.
Let me then walk out of comfort and smallness. Let me walk directly toward fear and the illusory consequences I have imagined. They are not real. Let me snap the bands that preclude my blooming. Let me see the possibilities more clearly than the drawbacks. Let me bud, let me open, let me bloom, here and now!
