Resting in the Mess

Rest in the mess.

I was first introduced to this idea when I attended The Journey several years ago. After doing group work with my story and all of its messiness, my wise leader suggested that I just rest in the mess.

That idea was disruptive. Disruptive and freeing.

You see, I always held this idea that I had to get it together, and THEN I could rest.

It doesn’t work that way.

I don’t have to get it together.

So here is a little glimpse of how rest in the middle of the mess looks.

It’s reading one of my summer books in the backyard on the wicker furniture that was removed from the porch for the work. I could rest here in the midst of this. . .

How might you rest in the mess?
