in a loosely and in a generic way 12-step related meditation I read yesterday (quoted from memory):

In the past we often ducked from responsibility, didn’t want to show up… Today we celebrate our taking responsibility.

The last sentence keeps coming back into my mind. And, I realise, at the moment my taking responsibility is not of the kind ‘pull yourself together’ but of the kind ‘listen to every instrument in the orchestra’. At times, it feels close to uncomfortable just to be – even to enjoy just being. Unheard of that is. – Celebrating this kind of responsibility? Now that may be taking it a bit far yet.
