Searching for a blog topic today… I looked back at things I have written in the past. I quickly realized.. I don’t live there anymore, why am I even looking there? So, I spoke about what is in my heart right now and what I plan to do about it. Enjoy!
Life is busy and can be chaotic… we get an up close point of view when we really need to be able to step back from time to time so that we can see the bigger picture. We should not live in the past but don’t forget the lessons it taught us…. we should not live too far in the future that it takes us away from living in the moment. We have to find a balance between then, now and tomorrow. It takes putting distance between you and your situation to see the bigger picture. Take the time when things start feeling out of place to do that. Step back and really look at what’s going on… in the physical form and mental form.
So I’m sitting here in the office and I keep feeling drawn to post some daily wisdom for the day. I pull out my cards.. shuffle.. shuffle.. shuffle… Two cards pop out if the deck together. I flip them over and this is what I saw:
Three of Water – Fullness
Enjoy the fruits of your labor. Make no rules of what should happen next.. enjoy what is offered and stay open for new surprises.
Seven of Earth – Depletion
Expecting something increases our chances of disappointment. Stay in the moment, live in the now. Allow yourself time to rest and be mindful not to project any negative thinking into the future.
Together they show you how you can be full and next minute depleted of all. Be careful that you remain in the moment and take that time to enjoy all the fruits of your labor.. even the tiniest tomato can be as savory as a big plump one… so enjoy what is offered and don’t throw away that fullness with expectations of what happens next…. allow “next” to come on its own time and for now.. enjoy the life before you.
Be careful not to cling to any emotion… allow yourself to experience emotion without fear of that emotion and without clinging to that emotion.
For instance: When one is happy, you want to hold on to that feeling for as long as you can. You push that moment into being and in doing so you also create a fear of loss with that emotion. This blocks energy from flowing freely through you and all times we need that energy flowing.
Allow happy moments to come and go at their own natural pace. The same is said for all other emotions. When you allow fear to take over you allow road blocks in your own life-spring of energy.
It is hard to let go of that control. We want so badly to keep happiness in our lives, but think about this for a moment. If you are clinging to one particular happy moment … you are blocking other emotions from flowing through you. The same again is said for other emotions…. Anger, hatred, sadness, etc. Live in this moment .. right here .. right now.
What is done is done.. holding on to past emotions is pointless and helps no one.
