Work is not always required. There is such a thing as sacred idleness-
Every moment in our lives is a fresh start. Every breath, every movement we make. We are always at the beginning; Wherever we are along our path in life. Sounds like a song from Sting does it not?!?
I would like to plant a thought in your fertile mind this morning, maybe getting you to think deeper, about “something” we take for granted:
All we truly have is the present moment.
Each day we are living with the consequences of our past choices and actions. A cool dude back in the day – Buddha, taught us that when we hopelessly cling onto our stories about ourselves, or about what we think is destined to happen next, we only create suffering for ourselves.
We can begin anew right now, seriously! Instead of floating along in our habitual, and dare I say: Mindless … Ways of being. Press pause and find the beauty in this moment, right now.
Welcome home, to yourself.
🙂 Stories about ourselves. My trap, I think.
I suppose it depends on we address this topic. Reliving past memories, is beautiful as long as we keep them there, in the past. My problem is when I lament the “good ole” days and try to apply them to right now, or something in the future … Usually things don’t turn out very well. 😉
I hope you guys are staying warm, take care!
:-). Yup. Reliving? Nope. Regretting their passing? Maybe sometimes–I really miss softball.
We are trying to stay warm.
I really dig that cool cat, buddha 😉 Thanks for sharing
Yeah – He is one cold dude! I hope all is well, take care!
Thank you for the reminder! I couldn’t have read anything more right for this morning.
Its always nice to hear when a post resonates with a caring reader – such as yourself. 🙂 I hope you are having a brilliant weekend, take care!
