If only we could appreciate the NOW. It is no mistake that we are right where we are right now … there is a very good reason. We just need to figure out what it is and learn to go with the flow … It is when we are still with the current situation at hand, regardless of what it is … there is a reason it was put in our path and we need to tune in and listen … What does MY body feel like? What would MY heart do? What is MY right action?
I learned this lesson the hard way just a few weeks ago … Yes I AM still learning **chuckling** I was stretching, reaching for a doorknob to let the dog in, turning my head back telling myself to remember to hang the towel up, and also thinking I need to feed the cats, when my leading foot caught on a bicycle tire, sending me into a heap in the corner between the door and a wall. Well! That stopped my multitasking right in its tracks, to say the least. And no one could even get into the laundry room to help me up because I was smashed up against the door trying to unrumple myself. Needless to say, I was not happy to be here now … and I was beginning to feel the pain in my hip and wrist …
Once I got up, did a check of all body parts, took remedies to support what I would undoubtedly feel in a bit, I carried on in my usual multitasking way … YES you can laugh with me now … because the story continues ….
Within the hour as I continued helping out, thinking that a garment would be better stored in another closet, I only got a few feet when part of the garment got underfoot while walking on pergo flooring …. Yes I went crashing down again! This time it was full on my knee … THAT DID IT! OK! I AM now paying attention. I decided to stay down, gather my wits and breathe through the pain.
What are the lessons that you notice?
What happens if you stay put and just pay attention to your surroundings?
I'm learning that it's no easy task to learn the "be-ing".
