My goodness, isn’t life busy?
Currently I find myself in a somewhat quiet space of contemplating life and living. In considering the most authentic and resonant way forward for me, I have been brought back to the now. Back to me.
As I breathe gratefully in the space that this spiritual season has provided, I’m thinking deeply about how easily we can get caught up in our perceived priorities, in powering towards whatever goal we have set ourselves … and how easily we can lose sight of, and connection to, our truth.
Over the holiday weekend, I’ve been sifting through some of the treasures that come through to me on Twitter, reflecting on the messages they bring. And what they bring me is food for my soul … so I thought I’d share a few of them with you:
Soul Seeds have been an amazing discovery for me, insightfully identifying and responding to the complexities of the human condition.
- Today’s inspiration linked me to an article on Burnout by the author Joan Borysenko, who reminds me to remember to say no to the ‘things’ in life that threaten to exhaust, derail and dilute my strength and purpose.
- In one of their postings I am encouraged to know that just as I am, I am enough, but can still choose to continue the journey to self:
“You are perfect as you are, and you could use a little work.”
- And through their social media branch Soulseeds Media @Soulseedsmedia, Victoria Holt’s call to honour every experience of my life:
“Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.”
In ‘Meditation, then and now’ http://youtu.be/xRMf4z8Cs8s, a delightful little snippet has reminded me of how simply I can source the answers to the questions and challenges that plague me. It’s as simple as going within.
Joseph Campbell (through UniverslSpirituality @unvrslsprtlty) inspires me to never be afraid of facing my fears: “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” Again, as simple as holding onto love, and going within.
And finally, two thoughts that link to my passions around storytelling and perspective transformation:
- “Change the story you tell yourself. Let go, move on and thrive.”
- And from Deepak Chopra – “Freedom lies in separating yourself from your story.” http://www.deepakchopra.com/video/view/170/to_change_your_life_change_your_story
I’ve remembered that the time is always right to stop whatever terribly important thing we are doing, to go within, and to reconnect to our higher wisdom. It is only through going within that we can recalibrate our guidance and find our ‘True North’ to move forward most authentically. What a simple truth.
So for now I will sit quietly and reflect on words brought to me by Sherry Gillam @grapechick :
“How beautiful it is to do nothing, and then to rest afterward.” ~Spanish Proverb
