Ever feel on top of the world? Have you ever felt everything in your life is a blessing and even the yucky stuff cannot get you down? Isn’t that feeling the most amazing energetic surge? I have felt this way for about 7-8 years now on a 75% consistency level. What I am still working on and learning about is to experience this feeling 100% of the time. That’s right, I want the whole package!
The past 4-5 weeks I have not felt completely disconnected, however disconnected enough not to write anything. We can all relate to being busy and not having enough time in the day. I do not like using that as my excuse. I simply say, “All is still well,” and when my pen can reconnect with the paper it’s GO TIME!
Summer vacation is here and having my kiddo’s home completely refuels me and brings me back to my source. Watching them play, create, and use their imagination brings complete joy to my heart. I love being able to relate with them and as they are getting older, we have more commonalities. Right now at this moment they are across my pond and playing some type of game where Rocco is the dad, Avery is some glamorous gal and her friend is a nature lady. They are pretending to be stranded on an island. Boy do I remember those days of imagining! Rocco just caught two fish and they are pretending it is dinner.
This wonderful feeling I am experiencing now is exactly what I plan on practicing and sometime soon will always feel. Buddha is one of my mentors that I try and follow. His views and philosophy were so simple yet so hard to instill. The kindness and peace I get. The difficult part is having no emotion and being still in your mind and heart for this whole life time. Even when he lost someone close to him whether it is death or just distance he had no reaction. Being still and being present was all that mattered. The past was gone and the future was foolish to think about or get anxious over.
How happy and peaceful would we all be if we didn’t think about the next day, month or year? How amazing would it be if we could let go of the past and not go over all of the stupid small stuff, like what someone said about us or what someone didn’t do when you think they should of?
My kids are bringing back the fish they caught and are releasing them where they found them. We need to do the same…….any type of yucky attitude we catch, or behavior we have adapted to that is not making us feel good, we need to bring it back where we found it and LET IT GO! What a great message from a 9, 11, & 12 year old. My heart is done speaking now so my pen is done writing….please let this message set in……Peace!
