“IF YOU ARE GOING TO STOP THE WORLD YOU MUST CLAIM YOUR POWER, BUT NO MAN CAN CLAIM HIS POWER IF HE FEELS UNWORTHY OF IT. ”
An Acquaintance came to me earlier this week, requesting to leave a “few” items with me as his residence is currently undergoing renovations where he was concerned that these items were at risk of being damaged or being taken due to the workers having free access to his living space.
I agreed in principle believing that this was a temporary situation, and I had no problem helping him out, however when it started becoming apparent that he was looking for a longer term storage space after he had left his items with me, I started becoming uneasy regarding the arrangement.
When I sat with this feeling, it became clear that I already had a lot of stuff stored in the ceiling to make space for my living conditions, and I was now expected to give up what little space that I had left for his comfort, especially as this space is where I normally practice yoga.
I then spoke to T, giving him a time frame by when he needed to collect his goods, which then left me settled knowing that this space, while I might not use it as regularly as I would like, has an impact on my quality of living. :-)
