Sometimes lying under a tree or walking barefoot on the earth, is the most spiritual experience you will ever have.
Last week I was running around like a crazy woman trying to launch a new project and by the end of the week I was exhausted, and felt like I had run a marathon! As I slowed down and connected again, I realised how often I had let my mind take over. Danna Faulds words are a beautiful reminder.
It only takes a reminder to breathe,
a moment to be still, and just like that,
something in me settles, softens, makes
space for imperfection. The harsh voice
of judgment drops to a whisper and I
remember again that life isn’t a relay
race; that we will all cross the finish
line; that waking up to life is what we
were born for. As many times as I
forget, catch myself charging forward
without even knowing where I’m going,
that many times I can make the choice
to stop, to breathe, and be, and walk
slowly into the mystery.
