Wisdom is everywhere, I’ve realised. It’s us who have created Walls around ourselves and in our souls.
I am learning that I am, my biggest obstacle.
So am learning to simply do some deep breathing everyday, and set an intention that life is good. Am learning how lovely and powerful it is, to simply stand in prayer, paying attention to every word I say and its meaning(not just repeating prayers quickly and running off). And finishing the prayers with an automatic sense of peace , strength ,rest and trust, that I then take with me onwards into the day.
That’s all. No struggling . When I do this diligently,there is happiness and life makes sense.
I just do the work of what I like and that’s all . When I do the work I begin to enjoy it. No seeking, no wanting, only the work. And I am good. The work can be simple morning arabic class, or a walk in the park with lovely wind and little children playing, or reading a favourite poet, or writing in purple ink about all the things that make my heart sing
I am refilling the beauty of this world, rather opening a channel again, so it always flows through me.
I am also re-learning what it is to always Trust , the Most Gracious -The Creator
That’s the story so far.
Most of us know the story of how if we hold on too tight to what we want , like the sand on the beach ,it seeps through our closed fists. But is we hold the sand in an open hand it sparkles with the sun. And is beautiful and joyful.
May our work and we – always sparkle. May we move in tandem with the moments of this world , May we always, always, know the peace in prayer.
What’s your work ? What are you doing , today ?
With much gratitude,
