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.

Weighed down

When we allow the mind to sabotage, it builds up negative energy throughout the body, in every cell. It feels like we are carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. That’s true, the negative energy in our cells makes us sluggish.

Thoughts transfer into the physical body in the shape of emotions and chemicals.

So when we sit stuck in our mind, being dragged along by one thought after another, the same repeating ones that we have every single day, we are not aware of the build up in our physical body too of the heavy negative energy.

When we become conscious and the mind stream is silent and we are not energising it, then we feel physically lifted too. That’s why for example, doing a walk or some physical exercise brings us so much more than just fitness. A walk in the park or the woods allows us to become awake and away from the mind connected to nature and its stillness. This allows the mind to silence and to our mental and physical state to become positive energy. Our soul, mind and body are recharged.

When we let go of thoughts, our creative energy from our soul shines through, there is room for positive things and this again frees us from the chemicals in the body from all the negative emotion that thought creates.

We alone have the choice of whether or not to take our thoughts seriously or not, to be weighed down by them, to suffer from them or to let them be and focus our energy on the moment.
