Open to the flow

To live a truly creative life, we always need to cast a critical look at where we presently are, attempting always to discern where we have become stagnant and where new beginning might be ripening. There can be no growth if we do not remain open and vulnerable to what is new and different.

This is John O’Donohue’s invitation in the introduction to Beginnings, in Benedictus: A Book of Blessings.

It’s a choice, yet it only takes a little crack for the water to flow through.
