Sometimes the world feels like a bit much.
I’m sure I am not alone in losing friends to cancer; having to start over repeatedly; being threatened by extreme weather or wildfires; and the list goes on.
We all go through it. Life has its unexpected turns. Coming around a bend can be scary.
As I walked my dog this morning and looked at leaves covered in soot. I could feel the stillness. The depths of love and life that hold steady for our acknowledgment.
It’s like rising above the clouds or diving below stormy waves. There is a depth to being.
A peaceful, undisturbed calm. It’s always there, even in the midst of chaos and fear.
I love the feeling of being able to connect with a deeper truth. Something beyond change. Beyond the body. Beyond circumstances.
As I get older, I see the importance of spending more time there.
I have this deep urge to visit it more often and dedicate my life to it. Not sure how yet. But the thoughts and desire are there.
Simplicity is calling. I feel it.
It’s waving at me. Beckoning me to design a life with it in mind. Telling me to trust a higher truth. I love that it’s patient with me.
I’m getting closer to accepting its offer.
