“Observe the wonders as they occur around you.
Don’t claim them. Feel the artistry
moving through, and be silent.”
— Rumi

 

Sometimes the wonders passing through get pretty dark. Our relationships or some other area of our lives feels troubled and the taste of life just kind of crumbles or turns bitter like wine that has just started to turn. We turn to friends yet don’t wish to be burdensome with troubles that objectively seem minor. It’s just internally that they jump at our inner walls battering already beleaguered defences. To me that is the time to tune everything out put on some music that’s calming and inspirational and take myself out of the picture.
I can meditate. I can make art and write. I can walk in nature or I can close my eyes and do anyone of those or countless other things in my imagination. It’s amazing how even the shortest of removes can strengthen one’s resolve to see things through. It sounds trite and rather new agey to say ‘find your happy place’ and I am not suggesting living there or even sojourning. Hiding from troubles tends to strengthen them. However when we take these moments to strengthen ourselves then we can come back with a lot fresher perspective on what has been troubling us…
Blessings, G
