When your not in a rush and the rush comes to you, what can we do when we cannot become a hermit and hide from the outside world?
Whether it be driving down the road, in the stores or the people in our lives some how we can’t seem to escape the pushy rush of life. Maybe it is because I have had a lot going on in my own life that I am taking more notice of the rush going on around me. I have seen it all before, in many aspects. By being aware of my surroundings and practicing mindfulness I can stay in the flow much longer and easier. If we all did this even half of the time during our day then things might not get so frustrating. There are many of us that give and give of our time and our patience. We wait that extra minute so that rushing car can go ahead of us, or so the person in the store that almost runs into you can go ahead and that friend that is always in a hurry we give our time to instead of ourselves. Let it be we say as we let all the rushing pass us by.
What do we do when all the rushing starts to affect us? When our world starts to spin and we tire of “being pushed”! Every chance you get…..sit in silence, read a book, do a meditation, write in a journal or create something. If silence doesn’t work then play a game, have a nice dinner with a good friend or spouse. Find your balance between the rush and your inner peace. When being rushed is getting to you on the inside and your peace is disrupted this can cause you to get sick, hurt someones feelings or cause pain to yourself or someone else.
I have found myself in this place the last few days and I needed to step back and look into my life, what was going on and I know that when I realize that I am being impatient and easily frustrated that I am not centered. Finding time to reevaluate and get back to myself again is important for not only me but everyone. When my inner light goes dim it effects the world around me. I do my best to remember that when I am in a positive heart state it reflects out to the people around me. Practicing mindfulness everyday is a challenge and being diligent can be as well especially when I am off balance. I say to myself when I get off track that I am human and move forward into a loving place. Such as the the in the life of a light worker.
This entry is a bit different then my usual poetry but it is a blog all the same. I wish to inspire by expression and if my writings help just one person to get that twinkle of light then I am grateful.
