Being on the edge of an instance, aware of the next step forward whilst conscious of our effort leading us to now, is a way of respecting this present moment.
Although time as such does not stand still, our perception of it from on the edge might be wide enough to provide an enhanced understanding of this instance. On the edge of a new beginning as we look out to what could be is an exciting or worrying experience.
Concerns about tomorrow are possibly accompanying us on the edge. However, having gotten this far, we need not be put off from preparing ourselves for the subsequent stage of life’s journey waiting for us beyond the fears.
Other sensations or emotions with us on the edge will be determined by our attachment to its location. When we are on the edge of a change out of our control, the overriding feeling can be one of confusion. The unknown holds what it holds, yet through the lenses of unease the way forward may seem blurred at best.
On the edge of desired transformation, on the contrary, is a thrilling moment, one filled with possibilities and hopes. The challenge before us is seen with curiosity and excitement as we imagine how we will successfully embrace whatever the opportunity offers us.
Right now, being on the edge of your patience perhaps, let me stop.
