We spend much of our time and strength imagining possible outcomes that never materialize. We rush through this to get to that, often unaware of the wonder around us.
My practice focuses on becoming aware of each step; Each breath; The breeze on my skin. My practice is not about getting anything. It’s about becoming each action and being aware of what is.
Here are some musings.
Take a breath and breathe in the meaning of your better. Become your better with each action you take. With every interaction become your better self. Each movement of your body. Each word you utter. This is the better you likely seek.
Being is very different than having. We might “be” an artist, engineer, scientist, healer or adventurer but without giving into this “being” we are often just using these activities towards “having.”
Water is fluid, tends towards stillness and is reflective.
I had a friend that once told me he was loyal to his wife because she was loyal to him. When I asked, “What happens if she ever is not loyal to you?” His answer was that he’d not be loyal, too. How strange.
