I can’t believe that we are already entering into a new month. It seems like the year is blasting by at a rapid pace, and many of you are probably feeling the effects. Time seems to be pushing us into greater alignment with sensations of having to hurry, having to be on time, having to keep to a tight program/schedule and in some ways this takes us out of ability to just be present.
We have to find our stillness in all the hustle and bustle. Where is your center throughout your day? Many of us make plans to wait until we get home to begin our meditation practice, but after plopping down in front of the computer we end up either forgetting or just deciding there isn’t time for spirit.
It is important to prioritize your connection to the divine. Bring it into your day. Where in your day will stillness assist you in connection not only to your day, but to your divine nature. Taking controlled intentional breaths through the day are invitations to spirit to enter into that moment with you. When we allow space, we allow the divine to move into that moment. We just get to be present, even if it is just for one single breath. The key is to “allow” space for these connections to happen. I find myself reaching out in the business of the metro station, when people are testing my patience and grace. I find stillness at the cross walk.
Slowing down throughout the day and just saying “Thank You” to the divine for the moment that is right in front of us. Thank you for allowing me this space to breathe. Thank you for this job that I have. I also take this a bit further, and I love thanking God for the difficulties. Each time we are presented with a chance to step into our divine nature, and we truly step into that space, we are learning to be present.
Where do you find stillness throughout your day? Where do you give your moments of gratitude?
Live, love and be blessed. You are beautiful, you are loved, and you are Divine!
