It passes

Whatever comes, it always passes, all things, situations, events, people and so on are temporary.

Yet the mind convinces is that they are permanent. Either for the good or the bad.

If we accept what is and accept people as they are, then whatever occurs we can be at peace with it.

Alternatively, we can allow our mind to make us suffer with its attachments to all things and all people.

These attachments don’t bring joy they bring expectations, conditions and that leads to burden on others and suffering within.

Acceptance allows inner peace and letting go of attachments allows us to accept.

It passes and that’s ok. Just be.

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.
