Over the past nine months, lots has been happening behind the scenes at Threads of Awakening, becoming visible little by little throughout the year.
The problem is that nothing ever gets really finished (complete, done, perfect)!
Each idea leads to another in a continuous flow of change and growth. As soon as a website is re-designed, for example, the contact of vision with “reality” gives rise to lists of changes to be made. Long-term projects are like that. And so is life.
So I don’t announce… and don’t announce… until at some undetectable point, it seems too late.
It seems anticlimactic to introduce the website or video that’s already been online a few months. The moment of completion has passed without ever having arrived!
Hmm… my tendency might be to say, “Oh well, I guess there’s nothing to announce after all.”
But that would that deprive YOU of all the wonderful tidbits I have to share. And it would deprive me of celebrating with you.
So I’m not going to give in to this voice of perfectionism that holds off celebration until some magical moment of accomplishment. And I’m not going to give in to the voice of smallness that assumes you already know what I haven’t yet told you.
Instead, over the coming weeks, I’ll be shining a light on recent developments at Threads of Awakening and Stitching Buddhas, pointing out details you may not have noticed and revealing the fabric behind the Weekly Wake-Ups.
We’ll look at the new logo, based on a traditional calligraphic seal by Tashi Mannox, next week.
Do you have something that you are waiting for the perfect moment to acknowledge? Why not declare the moment NOW and share it here? Just leave a comment below. I’d love to celebrate with you.
