I apologize for my silence over the last several days. It’s not actually the first time I’ve gone “AWOL” on the blog—just the first time I’ve been honest about it. For the most part, I try to maintain some kind of a presence by saying “Peripateia is Out.” The idea is that I’ll have time later on to fill in the missing posts, the sort of deception obvious to everyone else but the perpetrator herself.
But in this last week of December, I figured: I’ve surrendered enough attachments this 2012 to relinquish this attachment to posting daily as well. The letting go proved surprisingly (very surprisingly) easy. The inner voices didn’t even put up a fight. Even more unexpectedly, the inner voices didn’t even demand an explanation for why they (the inner voices) didn’t put up a fight. (Perhaps the inner voices were busy caroling.)
Anyway, that’s one more attachment gone, and I’m glad it happened while it was still 2012 (my Grand Year of Letting Go, otherwise known as my Grand Year of Discovering What Was Not Essentially Me). All this means that I have even more space in 2013. To do exactly what, I’m not sure. Or to be more precise, I’m not exactly certain.
And guess what, the inner voices are okay with the uncertainty too.
Anyway, happy happy New Year’s Eve everyone. I hope your 2012 was as positively life-changing as mine was.
