COMPLETION

There is a time of processing and enfold-ment, and there is also a time of completion. When I was in graduate school, I almost made a career out of being a graduate student— for awhile, I forgot that the point of graduate school is to graduate. We can get stuck in procrastination and spend long periods of time postponing coming into our own until we remember that we are not just here to travel but to arrive at our destination. While it is good to initiate processes and to begin new things, it is also good to complete what we have started. Sometimes we feel a sense of exhaustion and inner depletion because we have unfinished business to attend to. When we arrive at completion, there is a profound sense of release and relief, and all is right with us and our world.
