Each day has its treasures, each hour its wonders. When I find myself in the mind swirl of things to do and stuff to worry about, I am choosing more often to find something wondrous to put into focus instead.
That wondrous thing/person/feeling is always there.
Refocusing is possible with….
-a long, sweet breath of thanks-giving, of gratitude for being here, alive, at this moment;
-absorption in nature while saying thank you out loud. Wait for it… The raven will grace you with a low fly-by, the trees will rustle and sing in the breeze, the sound of silence will illuminate the moment;
-a peek into a treasured book while watching for the uplifting words that will shine forward and then into your be-ing….
These are tiny movements that create immersion into a calm and gratitude filled space.
Each day brings more learning in taking an active role in moment to moment happiness.
Deepening into the simple life.
“In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in a clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness.”
-Mohandas K. Gandhi
“Smile, breathe and go slowly”
-Thich Nhat Hanh
Time out is a good thing. You can shift to Paradise in the next breath, and a sense of wellness and timelessness will be the wonderful result.
