As I am up super early washing little bottles in hot sudsy water, I am reminded of how - as my friend so beautifully showed me while teaching Montessori school - there is usually a "natural timing" for everything.
There is usually a moment when a task which seemed daunting or simply unpleasant a day or week ago suddenly feels just ... natural. The time has come for us to share our time with this task and there is no efforting to it, just following a rhythm, dancing, allowing.
This requires Trust.
Trust that yes, there WILL come a time (if we just stop chasing it or forcing it) when cleaning the toilet at the very most will feel neutral. Possibly even entertaining. Or meditative. Or simply good.
A time when sitting down to do paperwork will hold no charge. Maybe because it is now raining outside or maybe because well... it is just natural time.
Trusting in natural time. I really like it.
