Mindfully walking in the warm sunlight,
A large boulder called to me,
“Sit down and enjoy the surroundings of Nature”.
Birds singing songs of happiness,
Crickets chirping to the beat of my heart.
Majestic mountains of green in the distance
Whispered to me through the wind,
“Walk in Peace.”
Glistening red rocks spoke softly,
“Make time every day to Just Be.”
Live your life like a work of art.
~ Wayne Dyer ~
What would it be like to live your life like a work of art in progress?
How would your life be if you treated it like a masterpiece that you are working on every day?
Look at the lives of your heroes. Who is your most influential person that left a positive impression on you? Someone that stands heads above the rest with a message that you want to emulate. What was their approach to love and living a life of success and contentment, serving and giving of their ideals and what they taught?
We spend our entire lives trying to be successful, to perform up to the standards of our peers and achieve what others have. It’s like we are on a wheel, chasing our own tail, competing with everyone around us.
How much does this all matter to you?
When you tune in to the things we stand for, the things that mean something to us, they will show up in our life.
What are you here for? How are you going to live your life? How will you serve others? Is this important to you?
Your life becomes a beautiful piece of art, perfect and in harmony with the Universe. Everything that you asked for will show up in some way or another. It may not be exactly as you wanted, but the Universe will bring it to you as it is supposed to be.
Now, go get to work on your masterpiece and see what shows up. What will your masterpiece look like?
“You are the main character in the story of yourself.”
~ Eckhart Tolle ~
So, what’s your story?
How is your story working for you?
Are you alive?
Can you feel it?
Most people go through their day by rote …. totally in their heads….. absorbed in their thoughts. They live with their ego and their story. Their minds are chattering endlessly. Are you continually thinking of what to do next, what to say next? That is a normal tendency, but when you are in the present moment you give attention to those thoughts and to your body.
When we let go of the ego, and get to know our main character, the real you . . . your mind is quieter and calmer. You notice things you never saw before even though it is the same path you have traveled many times. When you look for the spaces of quietness and calm you become more alive. Your thoughts are more productive, spontaneous and suddenly you realize you have a new way of looking at things.
Get out of playing the game of your life. Do something new and creative and different and challenging. Discover who you really are …… your true essence. Get to know the deeper YOU. Concentrate on your inner body instead of the outer self.
Redirect your thoughts into the aliveness of your body. Live differently!
Sit still for a few minutes every day, and notice the changes. It’s just a matter of taking the time. Make the time. Make it a habit.
What does your body need? Perhaps healthier food, more exercise and energy, more attention. Give your mind, body and spirit the attention it is craving. Give it balance. If you don’t, it’s like living in a huge mansion and only inhabiting one room in the basement.
