“If you keep doing what you have always done, you will suffer.”
Change is here.
Holidays are cancelled. Economy is falling. Family gatherings postponed indefinitely. Borders are closed. Beaches and parks are now in lock down.
No matter where we think we can turn for space, for freedom; another day arrives, with yet another road block.
We are all hurting in some way.
So my new question is “What’s here?”
What’s the point of asking this question? Well if we don’t get creative right now, if we don’t open up, and expand into a changing world that we have never lived in before; then we may just go down with the ship.
In order to find what’s here, right now in front of us, requires us to pause, take a knee, and take note of the good, the abundant, and the possible, and if not, then imagine it.
I was at the beach this weekend, might be closed next week…this I don’t know. But anyway, I took it all in while I could. I was grateful for the vast blue sea, the bluest of blue skies, the soft white sand, warm water, long walks, fresh air, our health, my beautiful family and dear friends.
So what’s here for you? Look deeply and mindfully. Not at what we can’t do, or what we can’t have.
Just what we do have. Here and Now.
And just be sure to notice the collateral beauty……
