I woke up this morning feeling better, went up on the roof and did my yoga, and ended as I do with meditation. I found it very difficult to focus, to still myself inside this morning. The same issues from yesterday, hanging in my mind. I began praying my thoughts, and in exchange...this:
Your time is short. Don't waste it. Don't worry about these things that seem so important. They are not. The only thing you need to do is to love, powerfully, those around you. Be kind and patient, in every moment you are given, with everyone. Especially those who your journey has connected you to, intimately and by family ties and friendships. This is your work. The other things will resolve themselves.
Reminded, thankful, fresh and quiet and clear, and eager to practice, I jumped off my yoga mat like I had ants in my pants (which actually isn't out of the question in a place like Hikkaduwa), came downstairs and into my day~
I don't take "Your time is short" in a scary way. I take it as in, LIFE IS SHORT.....no matter the number of days we are blessed with. We get so twisted up and around things that are temporary and meaningless to the Spirit of the World.
Thanks be to the reminders~ in all their shapes and sizes
Bless the day.
