Lately I am seeing how we are all having our own unique experience in this life, colored by perspectives shaped by what we believe to be true based on our perspective from previous experiences…my, what a hamster wheel!
“If you can see your path laid out in front of you step
by step, you know it’s not your path. Your own path you
make with every step you take. That’s why it’s your path.”
Since allowing these words to swim through my being, thank you Joseph Campbell, I hear a sweet smile in the air whenever I begin to feel so ‘serious.’ Dwelling in uncomfortable thoughts, (please note I wrote ‘dwelling’ to insinuate suffering, rather than the simple allowing of feelings which might be ‘uncomfortable,’ to ebb and flow like the tide, like our breath), is a form of masochism. In any given moment, one may allow thoughts to come and go, or choose to focus their attention on something of interest.
How do we choose…? Do we hold tightly to our ‘story?’ A ‘story’ which is limited by perceivable highs and lows? If I get to choose, then my story may be the imperceptible chills which run through my body when a hummingbird whizzes by. My ‘story’ could be filmed through the half-closed eyes of one resting between dream states. Appreciating, without attachment, each moment and knowing with the next breath a new story begins.
With this, in humble gratitude, I put one foot, one smile, one breath in front of the other and allow the story to unfold before my heart. In trust, that the world will turn and a kaleidoscope of experiences are waiting to shine their light on this new day.
Infinite Love to ALL family and friends. May we arrive in trust and allow the Light in our Heart to reflect true beauty to one another, always and ALL WAYS.
