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.

Nothing at all

We rush around all day long, every day, in our minds, stressing, worrying, full of angst…then it’s over! A whole lifetime went passed and we didn’t stop to notice it or enjoy it. Busy doing something but really nothing that mattered very much. We are conditioned to always be busy and if we are not the conditioning makes us feel guilty. ‘I must work harder’ we’ll tell ourselves.

When was the last time you switched off the phone, closed the laptop, stayed in your PJs and did nothing, just chilled on the sofa, read a book, had a bath, went for a walk, ate your favourite cake or perhaps even baked it?

Take days off for nothing at all.
