The rain won’t stop because we can’t handle more neither will the birds stop flying whether we like or dislike them. The sun will come out each morning and the darkness will take away the light of the sun, whether we like it or not. The nature of life is just that – we did not create it nor will we stop it despite of what is going in in our personal life.
I believe that our human connection is what sets us apart, what we long for and what we are also afraid of. While we superficially mask our emotions or spend more time behind screens… perhaps what would make us feel whole, connected and great contributors of our societies, is extending the warmth of friendship.
I like to think that I am on vacation here on this earth. I want to tune in and enjoy all the blessings between the earth and the sky – millions of blessing! I believe that the more we can count our blessings, the greater our blessings will be.
Do you know what I keep on thinking about? How easy life can be lived with simple pleasures which require creativity and passion. It is hard to believe, even for myself, that an hour in my garden, without any disturbances, is enough for deep rejuvenation. And my lavender plants make it so worthy with their sweet, lingering fragrance.
I have fantasized about walking through a vineyard more times than I can count. My fantasy became true today and I could not be happier! One item checked off from my bucket list!
The hibiscus does not need seek any kind of reassurance from us to claim it’s divine beauty. It survives the winter and takes about four months after spring to bloom. It shows it’s magnificence by simply being itself. Those who have eyes for such beauty will find it and embrace it. Others may pass by unaware of it’s presence. Their lack of interest in it’s magnificence does not take away from it’s beauty or presence.
I think of how easy it is for us to get frustrated when we feel stuck in a dark place or simply when we feel that we are not making as much progress as we would like to in our daily lives. When you go through such moments, think of the sunflower bud and how MUCH MORE you are than the sunflower! It is o.k if you need more time to heal, restore, create, think, plan, regain your perspective etc. The darkness can only work in our favour when we understand that it is simply a natural process to bring balance life. Nothing more. Nothing less.
