Look up in a tree

Heads down
We trudge along
In the mind
It all passes us by
Day after day
Month after month
Year after year
A whole life with our heads down
There is only gloom down there

What we miss
Look up and see a smile
Look up and see a bird
Look up and see the sun
Look up in a tree
Look up and just be
Look up and love the world

Look up

I’m in Córdoba in Spain for a few days and touring around the city today I pushed myself to look up, rather than just at the pavement in front of me, which is often all I do. We are conditioned to not look outside of the very immediate surroundings, not just physically, but mentally too.

When you break the habit, as long as your careful with crossing roads, then you start to notice many things that most people will not. You will see amazing buildings, architecture, in big cities you’ll see a world that happens and many levels, you will see wildlife, nature, the sky and much more. You will get inspiration.

The same can be said in our mindsets too, learn to look up and break out of the narrow vision we can fall into.

It’s an amazing world and life beyond the end of our noses or just in front of us.
