Breathe – open your eyes and your heart and feel the love the universe sends your way.
I usually feel delight when I slow down, breath and really look and feel my place in this amazingly wonderful universe. I feel the universal energy entering into my body with every breath. The colors and vibrations of everything around me make me feel alive. The temperature of the air hugs my body and reminds me that all of this splender is fleeting, temporary and impermanent and for that I am grateful and feel the delight of life.
Kristi, I love your writings. How true it is that it is very easy to get caught up in our daily challenges and forget that we are on this planet for such a short time – and letting our “troubles create a great deal of noise” for us. Distracting us, creating lots of self-talk, self-doubt and anxiety.
Practicing mindfulness or whatever else we may do to slow this world down a bit makes it easier for us to “see” the wonder and awe of this universe and our place in it. It would be a shame if we only started to look for our place and contemplate the wonders of our universe on our deathbed.
Without setting aside time for our practice, all we are doing is practicing distraction – making it much harder to really experience the wonder of it all. Carpe Diem.
Kristi! Welcome words for these times. What a great way to integrate our Grateful Living Practice with practical positive activism – with love and focus and connection with others on this planet. Beautiful words…
