Come Walk With Me
An early morning walk is a loving commitment to myself, a daily practice primarily for exercise and my Qigong routine of breath and stretch work. When I am in my island home I go down to the ocean to a magical place where inspiration and peaceful contemplation wait for me. I invite you to join me, share my thoughts, and add yours in the comments.
We all have a need for the support and guidance of others to reach our goals. This is especially true when one is considering making a big change in one’s life, perhaps a life change to realize a buried dream.
The Power of Listening, to others, to ourselves, to what is around us, to what is inside us, or even to silence.
When one is considering making changes in one’s life, small or big ones, it becomes critical to know the difference between realistic goals and expectations in order to avoid the pitfall of thinking they are one and the same.
As I walked, a verse of the poem, Sea Fever, by John Masefield popped up in my mind.
“I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied.”
When it seems your path is blocked, is it time to give up or change direction?
If every moment were just like this, then how would we know to identify it as tranquility?
Seeing with the eyes can, at best, give only a glimpse of life happening all around us. Invisibility in nature provides protection for living and nonliving things. Do we humans choose invisibility at times, perhaps burying dreams we had wanted to pursue in the past? Are we self-protecting or self-limiting when we do ?
The value of previous experience and the moment you finally reach a stable stone.
“Who are we really?” Is this the question, the key question for each of us?
Has the experience of the pandemic helped you to identify a strong need for connection? What and where are the dots you can see to connect in your life?
