Inflow

I’m tripping out on my shell find today: a human heart!

With a lovely opening at the top for the inflow of deoxygenated blood from the head, through the superior vena cava, down to a beautiful concave of an apex. (Amazing how the anatomy knowledge just comes flooding back.)

But interestingly it is lacking the structures to push the blood back out: to the lungs, and then back in again from the lungs as oxygen-rich, to then be delivered to the rest of the body.

This morning, I set my intentions on more listening, less talking. More inflow, less outflow. More absorption, less immediate conversion and subsequent output. Not feeling obligated to fill the silence with non-articulated chaos.

Letting things come in, and just be.
