Notes From the Furlough: Day 7

Part of life is not life.

Please discuss. How does this play out in life?

I’ll start us out. An individual life like yours or mine has a linear beginning and end. Overall experience of existence, which we tend to think of as “life”, has many beginnings and endings simultaneously. Right now in my experience things are ending: 20+ steady years of employment, financial certainty, freedom of movement, social interactions with loved ones. Things are beginning too: this blog, an increased emphasis on my health, time for hobbies, a deeper spiritual focus. Then endings made space in my life for the beginnings.

How about you? What is ending in your life and what is that allowing to be born?
