When was the last time we actually sat by the fire, no devices, no distractions, and sat and watched the fire? Or it could be the sea, the leaves blowing across the park, the rain running down the window, observing an animal, sat in nature listening to a bird sing.
Then, while in that peaceful relaxed state have we taken time to observe our inner self? Simply feel our inner energy, just be in that moment.
If you haven’t, it’s worth a try at least once, see if it changes anything for you.
We miss so much of the simplicity around us and the life energy within us all and what it can do for us.
When others mess up or try something risky or new, we often sit there and reassure ourselves that would never happen to us, we’d never make such mistakes, how didn’t they now that would happen, sometimes even laughing at them and thinking or even saying things like ‘who could be that stupid’.
It is not our judgements of what others can or can’t do or what they should know that will make a difference, it is what we are prepared to do ourselves that really counts.
It’s easy to be smarty pants as the observer but much braver as the doer to risk ridicule and failure. It is hard to step into the ring and face down the critics.
But the rewards of showing up are so much better than observing others.
