I’ve just read a lovely poem about calm in chaos by Judei Takali here. It’s exactly my feeling right now. I’ve been feeling exhausted, without a place to ground and to be myself. Yesterday was a lovely day, I was in my garden and these dandelions called my attention. When I looked at them, I saw the Buddha statue, in there, solid and peaceful, not because it is a statue, but the feeling that comes from it and what it represents. Nothing can go inside it and disturb its peace. I though I can reach this state of peace too, this calm that nothing can disturb. I know that my words sound crazy, but this is my feeling in the last few hours.
I’m going to make space to ground and to feel solid, and don’t let anything enter my being if it will not make me calm.
I’ll invest in myself and I’ve already started it. I’m joining Michelle GD in her Just5Things course that starts tomorrow. Few minutes per day, making lists, and it will be the space to work on my ground and calm project. Like everything in life, we need practice and commitment, we can’t just say, ok, I’ll do this and that, everything needs work and discipline.
Hello my friends, hope you are doing well. This time of quarantine is making me reflect on many things. I’ve been up and down in relation to my feelings. Some days of stress, others of calm, others of nothing only going with the flow. I know for sure, is that I’m settling into the new routine of working from home. Sharing the space with my husband, having lots of coffee/tea and popcorn in the afternoons have brightened my day and I’m being more productive than we all day in the office.
The weather is getting more spring-like these days and a run at the closest park is always a moment of joy. Now is the season of tulips, and they are everywhere. I never get tired of taking photos of them.
Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.
We all got in the car this week. We drove to the lake. Spaciousness was the feeling when we got there. Breathe in, breathe out. The blue immensity filled my soul with calm and joy. It was a priceless ride for all the beautiful moments spent in there 💙
