Solar Question of the Day from Celtic Devotional by Caitlin Matthews
28th of November:
What threshold of attainment waits for you to cross over?
This one, like the others is going to take some thinking, there is no straight answer ready to fly out of my fingers. I am frowning some, inside, about how potentially I could get caught up in expectations here.
v 1: to gain with effort: “she achieved her goal despite
setbacks.” [syn: achieve, accomplish, reach]
2: reach a point in time, or a certain state or level; “The
thermometer hit 100 degrees”; “This car can reach a speed
of 140 miles per hour” [syn: reach, hit]
3: find unexpectedly: “the archeologists chanced upon an old
tomb”; “she struck a goldmine”; “The hikers finally struck
the main path to the lake” [syn: fall upon, strike, come
upon, light upon, chance upon, come across, chance
on, happen upon, discover]
4: reach a destination, either real or abstract; “We hit
Detroit by noon”; “The water reached the doorstep”; “We
barely made the plane”; “I have to hit the MAC machine
before the weekend starts” [syn: reach, make, hit, arrive
at, gain] —Source
I just don’t go in for the marketing hype to reach and to strive to be this thing that is something that I am not now. I have things I wish to do and to experience, but everything else just works as it does and I do it as it comes. I focus on engaging.
The question screams at me like a Nike ad, Strive get it, won’t be enough without it, see how pretty you will be IF ONLY you get here or go there. I’m frowning and it’s just not a match for me.
I can say that while I have a list of things I like and love and things I wish to do, I might be in idle. Idle reading and noticing aesthetic beauty, idle repeating simple basic things and noticing joys within them. I suppose from the outside, and sometimes from the inside, this might just seem boring and a rut. For me, it’s a time where I don’t have to spin, I don’t have to be yanked in a billion places in a billion ways.
