Floating by

Today I just got up and decided to go and sit by the sea, to be in the cold wind, to sit in the winter sun and to just watch the world go by…to be in the moment and at peace.

My soul and body were telling me for a while to take a break, to step away from the ‘package’ aka the mind and all its rambling repetitive daily thought patterns. But like most, I ignored it.

I feel completely re-energised from just being in nature and for feeling the cold elements. From just sitting and observing the moment, it reminded me that passing clouds and passing people are like thoughts they float by and that’s it. Everything passes unless we choose to cling on and attach things to it. Then through choice, we continue to suffer through our attachments.

Let life be, let it float by and go with it.

Neighbours

In these challenging times, it is even more important for the human race to come together and to reach out to each other with kindness, empathy and understanding. We live in hate-fuelled times and we have been divided up into our bubbles of hatred where there is no tolerance of a differing view.

Always, as things get darker, so they always get lighter, the Yin and Yang, the balance of nature and the universe. The darker it becomes the lighter it becomes too.

We can accelerate this process of it getting lighter, each and every one of us, by reaching out to our neighbours, our community, without judgement by spreading our light, love and kindness. We do not have to do anything big, we just have to step across the street and be kind to someone nearby. Small steps make big changes and we can all make a difference right now. We can step away from fear and its hate and we can choose to stop judging one another and our individual choices.

It’s a choice we can all make now and forget our differences, and become one against what lies ahead for humanity.
