There’s a big difference in “can’t” vs “won’t”……it comes down to choice and willingness. This week I took 4 days to “be still and listen” – no big writing (unless it was something I heard). I chose to limit my computer check time to 30 min in late am and late pm (or middle of night!)…….
But by being still I found myself being filled……almost giddy, like the bubbles in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory (original version). Charlie kept saying ” I can’t get down! I can’t get down”, after making a (questionable choice with his grandfather to disobey ‘orders”)….he wouldn’t do what he had to do because he was afraid….but he COULD – when he trusted in someone important in his life AND when he chose to act – from the bottom of his heart (BUUUURPP!)
Without the belch and belly-aching, which will you choose? Can’t or Won’t? Act? Trust? The choice is yours! Now I have to get back to digging out my office after 4 days of ‘stillness’!!
