Sometime this week I remembered that my resolve was to not buy books until I gave away an equal number of books..in other words, there is a path to acquisition! I can get books!!!!! That just needs to rest on letting go, and creating space. This isn’t always easy, (for one thing, those old purchases from amazon are still arriving, and for another, I want to read these books!) and it would be foolish to just function in a mode of exchange – 1 out, so 1 in – but it is a reminder of the power of space.
With space there are options, room to breathe so to speak. Once there is space one could choose to bring a new object into it, or not. Here is a root source of freedom. Space isn’t vapid, or bereft – it is the holder of untold possibilities.
Now I’m back in NYC, one of the repositories of my collection of books, alongside my home in Barre, Ma. I went to a bookstore yesterday (yikes!)to get some book bags, in which I can place books to be given away. So far I haven’t filled them, but I will.
