Offering Luminaries A Place to Cultivate
Enjoy A Little Peace & Ease
While on Your Journey to Become
Who You are Meant to Be....
I believe we all aspire to see the beauty more than the pain. I deserve -as all beings on this planet- to enjoy the gifts bestowed simply found in the fresh air.
All the people I meet and the others I never will…want to offer their love, come together in community and share in the juicy succulent bits of life.
----We all experience the same emotions, so why do we deny it....
Deny when we nod in the hallway on the way to the water cooler that we are just humans experiencing life. Instead we stare straight ahead -jaw set in tension instead of looking up, looking around and feeling the moment.
There are always people counting their minutes left to live, and I don’t say this for shames sake. But to help us see that the judgement of ourself, our life and others only throws fuel on the fire that is burning rapidly through our life.
What if we instead remained open to offering our true self in all situations, promise not to harm others in word, deed or in gossip? Try our best and notice, really notice it all. You don’t have to step down to battle when people mis-step. You can offer grace, face to face in helping them understand what you need, or offer them space as you bless their path walked without you.
With all the years traveled around the seasonal moon- I still struggle to recall the small moments of serenity and peace. Yet with ease I recall the heart ache and break, the frustration and judgement, the pain, and sorrow. Why has my memory bank settled on these images as if it is my eternal minds legacy? When in truth it is the bird perched on my fence eating berries from my tree that makes me smile and warms my heart.
Why- do I find myself numb as I stop breathing to answer an email. Was what was being said so damn important I shut off my connection to my life force? Will I recall what was said two years from now? Likely not… but my body will remember the unhealthy rush. When all that was offered was simple energy sent on electronic waves, no life threatened.
Watching people from afar- triumph over adversity or show special kindness to someone in desperate need always brings me to tears. Why must I only connect to my heart center when I am watching so much love offered beyond my arms reach…
The connection is right here, it's always here— but I reject it all while blaming and claiming the reasons why I am out of balance.
There are people passing through the thin veil as I type this sentence, never to feel the Autumn wind on their cheek while their dog runs at the end of the leash. Or taste the first crisp apple fallen from the front yard tree. Never again will they sing in the shower, or laugh at a silly joke. Air will not move in and out of their lungs-ever.
What do they wish now they had paid more attention to: fear, resentment and anger or appreciation and love?
Yet, I still sit here thinking about the long to-do list…. as if the list will get shorter. I find I am loosing my self in done instead of the amazing feeling that each lived experience will bring.
I implore us all to STOP- and reset and then start to enjoy life, embrace life. Especially since life is just one big fun crazy hold on to your stomach kind of ride.
If today I get to choose the legacy of my memories- I choose to recall the small stuff. Perhaps that is where the big wins live anyway that will be my priority above all else.
Cultivating Insight and Ease:
Tomorrow at work look at the people in your immediate work space- especially the ones that are stressing you out. Imagine them as young children dreaming of their future life. How might the difference in their dreams verses their now experience be creating any of the issues you are experiencing? Where can you have a few compassionate moments for them?
Remember that all kindness is amplified and brings more back to you! It is easy to see fault in it all… wishing for the change, the removal of that one person. And yes, there would be some relief, but what if you could get almost instant relief right now by trying this activity once a day?
If you really want to see the change, document your experience each time you notice their childlike dreams in contrast to their life offerings. In seeing them differently you will slightly shift yourself to a better feeling place.
As always, leaving a comment or sharing how your cultivated ease and insight is a true gift.
