Parking Spot

Where’s your parking spot ?

You know, the place where you are comfortable.

As in this far
and no further.

Well worn.

Tried and “true”.

Familiar.

Lots of us keep these parking spaces;
sometimes for years,
even for lifetimes.

“Go with what you know.”

Am not suggesting
any lack of utility
in reproducible results.

Recipes work this way,
for instance.

Leave out the baking powder
and the dough will not rise.

Spiritual dough is a little different.

Every time baking happens,,
no one knows how it will turn out.

Apparently there is more to humanity
than fits in a measuring cup.

Mind will tell you otherwise.

“Go with what you know.”

If you are reading blogs
books
and videos
like these,
perhaps you have started to doubt
that you want to live
one more day
in that same
suffocatingly cozy
parking spot.

“A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines.
With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall.”
― Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance
