Interesting clouds today: a block of grey, dark grey and then blue sky not far behind… Sometimes in life we feel stuck, as if nothing is moving but just like the clouds in the sky come and go, situations come and go. What remains is the sky and our true essence, they never change, they just are.
What a difference a day makes…the sun is out, the sky is blue, there is a gentle breeze, the horses are relaxing and enjoying this wonderful sunlight. Walking every day brings home in a very enlarged way how everything is constantly changing. To witness and observe this ever changing inner and outer landscape from a space of profound silence, undisturbed by any of it and allowing necessary action to come spontaneously, is life’s art.
I am feeling really sad today. My mother died almost six months ago and there are days it still really hits me. When sadness is overwhelming me, so much is happening in body and mind: a powerful force pushes to express, to put into words, to allow distress, to be still, to feel the release, to take the time to let it settle and to look outward again, to feel and be again connected with the here and now, to become active again and to enjoy the beauty of life.
