How Close Are You to the Edge?



“Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go.”  T S Elliot

Does this quote strike a chord?  When I typed this into the document ready to put in my two pence worth, I thought “the quote says it all.”  How many times have I or you pushed the boundaries, living on the edge of the known & unknown?  How many times have you chosen to step out to find the new boundary and how far out has that gone?  A new year is not far away, a common time to choose a new way of doing things.  Have you any thoughts lurking in the back of your mind of how you want to make things different for 2015?

Sometimes we can feel stuck when we don’t push the boundary, we may feel an anxiousness or a general sense of unease (disease).  Stepping into something our inner knowing is calling us to do, can be healing.  In our physical world, if we have a skin wound, the healing takes place at the edge.   What wound can you start to heal by working on the edge?  I have heard a quote that says, “If you’re not living on the edge, you’re taking up too much space!”  Are you on the edge or stuck in the middle?

Enjoy testing those boundaries.  I’m sure you did as a child!
