Even though I felt like a hermit most of the day, I met someone who reassured me of some things I was unclear on. There are still nice guys out there. Great conversation; nothing shallow, yet it was still light. The initial courtesies, as usual, but we were both surprised of the reaction, or non-reaction of the other. I think this will be the start of a cool friendship.
After taking care of some business and personal stuff, I spent most of the evening and night in quiet reflection. It was just time. Time for a break from the outside world and its influences. Very deep thought. I couldn't move, speak or even write anything. Just listened.
The word I kept getting was DELIBERATE. I was reminded of a sermon I'd once heard about being deliberate. So many times we want things and think we should just sit back and wait for them to come to us. I have to admit, FAVOR does work in my favor a great deal, however sitting around is not really the choice we should make if we're actively seeking something. I'm not saying movement should replace listening; in my opinion, it should, in fact accompany it.
