Chaotic Symmetry

I find myself so much more centered in the last few months than I've been in a long time.

 

My being resonates with a happiness and a contentment that I've missed.

 

Sitting down underneath this apparently chaotic jumble of iron and concrete I focused on that narrow beam of light.

 

The one in the center.

 

I studied the lines and the angles of the steel coming from every direction... in what seemed at first glance like a confused and haphazard manner.

 

In all of the chaos I discovered that there was a beautiful symmetry... there was a center... and as I focused on it... it became somewhat of a metaphor for the past five years of my life.

 

In the last few months I've found my center.

 

In all of the chaos and the confusion I guess I'd forgotten where it lay.

 

I walked away from that bridge feeling content... warm... balanced and happy.

 

When I found my center again I found myself... and I liked the one I saw.

 

It's a really good feeling.

 

Walking down the street I kept thinking about the bridge.

 

There was something more there.

 

Then I realized that it was a deeper metaphor than I'd thought.

 

The last six months of my life... they've been a bridge... a bridge between confusion and chaos and the happiness and contentment that I'd felt as I found my center.

 

I made the right choice.

 

I took the right path.
