The perils of introspection-
too long navel-gazing
tied up in knots.
I liked this little image. It reminded me of plow pose in yoga.
For some reason it lead to me thinking about the introspective life, and if you are like me, how this introspection can take on momentum of its own at times.
I will think and think, re-think, and think again on certain topics.
My husband has been the recipient, at times, of these “insights”, as I begin a conversation with ~ 18 paragraphs of introductory material. Material, that I might add, that is so NOT needed as often these topics are things we have discussed before.
But, in my introspective mode, I will find the need to re-hash it all once again.
There is a sense in my life, right now, of beginning to understand how needed “moving on” and “letting go” can be.
To be tied up in knots, only seeing one’s navel can be an interesting perspective- for a time, but life moves on and such a gaze does not lend itself to capturing the views.
