Getting something done

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.

I need to get something done.
So many things need to get done.
I don’t know what sometimes, or why,
but I know I need to get something done.

So I walk in the woods
until I leave this insufficiency,
the nameless thing,
and the endless needing,

until I find my place
not in some thing, behind me,
but in being where I am,
neither past nor future, but present,

accomplishing this one
most difficult thing:
being here,
simply, fully and attentively.

Only then
am I ready
for whatever
is next.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
