No plan

It’s good to have times when there is no plan, no deadline, no destination, just being.

It is the mind that convinces us that we need to be busy. But busy doing what? Do we ever stop and think about the purpose of all the things that we are busy doing versus all the amazing things that happen around us that we are never aware of because we are too busy.

Busyness is not the answer to a fulfilled life. Being and being aware will always bring us calm, peace and joy. Our primary purpose is to be conscious, to experience, to see the amazing in each moment. Our secondary purpose could be to do something, but without our primary purpose fulfilled, we will remain busily unfulfilled.

Try having no plan.

Closed for repairs

It’s good for us all to shut up shop.

Switch it all off.

Close the blinds, pull the duvet over and say ‘screw you world’.

Not often, but every so often, this allows a chance to breath, to relax, to be without any cares. A time to recharge a little, think, review, and allow some of the tensions of life to escape.

It’s even good to break the mundaneness of life’s rituals and routines.

Regularly, of course, it’s bad. But once in a blue moon, it’s good to be ‘closed for repairs’.
