“Time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life”
Lets rest here for a while and watch the sun rise across the land.
Lets just be here for a while, a little rest, a little bit of self-care.
Feel your feet on the ground
It is okay, you are alive, vital, present.
Open the senses, what can you see, smell and hear.
Lets linger for a while, no rush, no battles, no pushing or pulling.
We can let it all be for now.
Sometimes we just need to come back home, back to our true nature.
The tension in the belly, the closing of the heart, all little signs telling us to return back home, back to the breath, back to just this moment.
Watch the sun rise across the land, the mist rolling across the fields, the day dawning and unfolding.
Listen to the sounds, the birds singing, the distant traffic, the sound of your heart beating. So easy to miss in the busyness of life.
So often it feels like we are being pushed along out of control.
Feel your feet rooted into the earth, grounding you, supporting you.
Feel your breath, the rise, the fall, in and out.
There is a quiet stillness here, we can just observe it all with a gentle curiosity.
A space where we can just pause and rest.
A space between the stimulus and response.
A space where we can dwell deeply in the present moment and feel truly alive.
It is right here, amidst the chaos, it always was and always will be.
Rest in this self-care, soothe your soul and replenish your energy.
