Here’s one of our spiritual practices for this month – Figure Out Your Edge

The Edge Is Where I Want To Be, by Lisa Martinovic, pulls no punches. It’s audacious, urgent, impatient, even pushy. Simply put, Martinovic wants us out of the middle, or “the uncooked vanilla pudding of life,” as she puts it. It’s dangerous to stay there she says. So, she wants to shake us awake and get us to run as soon as possible to “the edge,” where true living lies.

But what’s your edge? That also is what the poem is all about. Don’t just run to the edge; Figure out which edge is yours.

If you’re ready for that challenge, then here are your instructions:

  1. Read Martinovic’s poem: http://slaminatrix.com/the-edge-is-where-i-want-to-be
  2. Ask yourself, “What’s the message in there for me?” (And write down your thoughts)
  3. Later (a minute, a day, a week), read the poem again.
  4. Ask yourself, “What’s the message in there for me?” (And write down your thoughts)
  5. Have a friend read you Martinovic’s poem.
  6. Ask yourself, “What’s the message in there for me?” (And write down your thoughts)

After three different “hearings,” some of the fog should be lifted. That edge of yours should be a bit more clear. Figure out a few steps to get yourself closer.
