Any of these words describe our day?

Present, awareness, focused, patience, stillness, calm, restful, quiet, meditative, spiritual, peaceful, without resistance, relaxed…joyful.

Any of these words describe our daily lives? Or even a part or a moment? Sometimes?

They could be always, or certainly more often, if we choose it. If we stop fighting what is, accept it, deal with situations as they arise and remain calm and present now instead of projecting problems that haven’t occurred.

The opposite of the words above, that are most people’s frantic days, comes from resisting what is, from the struggle against it.

Easy is a Venus Flytrap

If it is easy there is no value.

However, easy is appealing, we are tempted by the easy, as it gives us an immediate hit.

Value takes patience and sacrifice, we have to give up on the immediate hits to get it.

Every high or hit has a corresponding low. Something valuable brings us joy that is long lasting.

Easy is a Venus Flytrap.
