Close your eyes and take three deep breaths… This is the only moment you need to be worried about. There’s no yesterday. There’s no tomorrow. There’s just right now. You’re not late for anything. You aren’t going to miss anything. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. And you’re exactly who you’re supposed to be. You’re absolutely perfect. And whatever happens today is exactly what’s supposed to happen…
And if you want, I’ll spend every moment with you for the rest of your life.
It strikes me like a jolt, a good jolt that is, when you read or watch something you preempt as shallow, turns out to be a very extraordinary one.
We’ve all read, heard, absorbed how it is to be in the moment. How to be more conscious of ourselves. How to be more mindful of what we do. But for the most part, there is an important word we seem to ignore when we develop awareness… LoViNG.
Here you are at the onset of new beginnings and you find yourself craving for changes, either physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, in whatever-friggin-ly you intend to be more aware of. Now ask yourself – as you mount this aha-moment in your life – what are your reactions reaching this fork on the road?
Damn, those fluckin fudge bars created bars on my waistline.
I have to create peace within. I have to create peace within. Where the crap is within?
My apology will come… as soon as he calls me first.
And blah, blah, blah.
All these kind of reactions stem from the ego. We become aware of the ego and succumb to it. We become slaves to what it dictates to us. It does not empower us; ego dissolves our innate power.
There is a far more in-depth analysis in reaching the fork on the road. Any changes we seek, we begin building from the heart. The heart will never say you look like a fudge bar so do something about it. It will not derail you from creating peace. It does not give a hoot whether apologies come or not.
Our hearts, however, will allow you to feel when changes need to come. It allows us to accept from where we are, breathe, then take a step forward – whichever turn you decide on the fork. Only when we accept ourselves at where we are, we empower ourselves with not only mere awareness, we create a power within of LoViNG aWaReNeSS.
Even in the relationship you have with yourself.
Happy new beginnings!
