I suddenly realized as I geared up for my 4th attempt to establish a daily practice that I am Dorothy in the land of Oz. I'm in a new and strange environment but I am prepared to take the path on my own. The problem is I don't "know where to start." Oh I know its just a matter of starting, Know that intellectually. But deep inside the self that I have cultivated over the years wants someone to say "follow the yellow brick road." Not necessarily in a high pitched squeaky voice.
Once someone shows me that first yellow brick I will start skipping along. At times I hope to meet others. The scarecrow told Dorothy that "some go this way and some that as he hung on his pole."
And trust me i know there is a horde of flying monkeys in my mind just waiting to pounce once I take the first step onto the cushion.
Today I have vowed to start a daily practice. I will sit for 15 minutes every day and walk for 10. I will do so for the next 108 days.
In short, I'm off to see the wizard.
