“In the world I notice persons are nearly always stressed and have no time…I don’t know how persons with jobs do the jobs and all the living as well…I guess the time gets spread very thin like butter all over the world, the roads and houses and playgrounds and stores, so there’s only a little smear of time on each place, then everyone has to hurry on to the next bit.”
Jack: – ‘Are we in another planet?’
Ma: – ‘Same one. Just a different spot.’
I remember after watching the movie ‘Room’ a few years ago, how moved I was by the way Jack’s mother in the movie coped and created life with her son in one room, after being kidnapped when she was a young girl.
It made me think of all of us, staying in our homes, apartments and rooms right now and how we can create and imagine whatever room we want.
We can make our home a prison, that we want to escape, or we can make our home a sacred Temple.
We can make it a place of unhappiness and stress, or we can make a creative and imaginative space each day.
Of course, each of us is adjusting the best way we can, but we all have a beautiful opportunity to open our imaginations and explore a new way of being.
So even at times, when scared is what we may be feeling.
Brave is what we are doing to create it differently.
“Scared is what you’re feeling. Brave is what you’re doing.”
