I’m not sure what to write this week. I’m behind but I don’t know what to do about it. There are a few personal things going on in my life that are taking up lots of headspace.
One thing I have been practicing this week and last, is noticing when I am ruminating about the difficult things I am experiencing, and instead, thinking about God, which to me, turns out to be the present moment’s natural beauty.
I have noticed the way the waves froth and turn while I am surfing. I have noticed the way the birds swoop and call in my backyard. I have noticed the way the mist gathers and the sun cuts through the clouds. This has strengthened my resolve to do the best I can, and let me in on the secret that I am okay and that things are okay.
I have taken to believing that this means things will be okay in the future and this gives me great comfort.
That’s great Aschel – being the observer, noticing and appreciating the beauty around you, awesome!
The present moment is an absolute eternity, enjoy every moment Aschel in the way that you are.
Tough to beat that! Great way to keep things positive, Aschel!
Thank you so much for sharing. It really resonated. Keep going!
The cement is cracking and the world within is peeking out and joining the world without. Congratulations!
Great insights Aschel! “thinking about God, which to me, turns out to be the present moment’s natural beauty.” That spoke deaply to me. God, that is within us all, is the present moment’s natural beauty. Trust the process, stay on the track with your faith and focus on the daily habits. And remember the law of substitution ;-). You decide what you feel and think of. Maybe this is a challenge given you to really have the opportunity to build a solid ground for your true self?
Great to hear Aschel noticing more is awesome.
Mother nature is responsible for many things, Aschel. I’m sure she appreciates your quiet reflection. 🙂
