Take Time

Life is full of stresses and worries. Does it change one thing in our lives to feel this way, other than give us a few grey hairs, harm our relationships and health?

It is hard to battle with this internal dilemma, between sprit and the world our shell resides in, but the spirit can set you free.

For ultimatly, that is where our peace comes from, if we take the time to find it, and rest in that stream once in a while.

Spiritual Awareness

When you look out into the world and ignore your bodily shell for a few moments, sit quietly and just listen in a peaceful place. When you block out all the man made sounds and structures, your daily worries concerns and thoughts, remove all your preconceptions and be at peace inside. When you just sit quietly observing, listening and absorbing, and begin to float freely like a feather in the wind. What do you begin to hear? What do you begin to notice and become more conscious of?

Do you feel yourself become one with the spiritual stream of life and energy? It all resides there, in what is seen, but can not be seen, what is heard, but can not be heard, where it is felt in its entirety by becoming consciously aware of your spirit and where it resides.

When you learn to seperate yourself from your shell while living in this world, you will begin to become consciously aware beyond thought, reason, and doubt, that stream of energy, that river of life we all reside in, and the connections to each other we all share in that stream of energy, as we float down that river in our life's journey.

Trying to catch a feather.

Have you ever watched one of those small white feathers float along in the wind, then tried to reach out and quickly grab at it or snatch at it, trying to make it yours? It doesn't work very well does it?

It tends to push right out of your grasp from the air pressure your hand creates, the instant your hand tries to surround it. Try this instead next time, reach out slowly as the feather floats in the wind, gently cup your hand under it,  following it along in a patient nurturing kind of way. Now slowly bring your hand up to it, until the wind naturally drops it in your hand where the the two meet. Did that work better?

In your life, what is it that is like the feather, the wind, and the way you are reaching for it that isn't working so well for you? Have you tried the other approach?
