Is it Friday yet…? Let’s take time to slow down

“Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.”

-Lao Tzu

Take time to slow down. To appreciate the breath you take. To appreciate the wind and the trees and all the bugs that live in the park.

What a week it’s been so far, I’ve noted so much about my experiences since moving to my new home. I’m trying to be the person I want to be and the truer person I know that I am.

Finding that balance, the peace, following my intuition, listening to my heart, calming my mind… it’s the journey.

It’s been awhile since I’ve made it out to the trails. This time last year, I was here almost every day, using the freshness to bring me back to life.

But with all the bugs and the heat I’ve been hesitant to come run out here. Something told me today that I couldn’t put it off anymore, that I needed to go and reconnect to the earth and the trees.

And man, I’m so glad I did.

My mind feels clearer and my breath is deeper. I’m so glad I listened to my body and my third eye.

Learning to note the thoughts and emotions help to be able to distinguish between when the self is speaking and when the SELF is speaking. The little self is full of pride and ego while the capital S self is filled with compassion and wisdom.

Lately, I’ve been trying to be more mindful of my inner voice. My intuition that leads my heart has been telling me lately things aren’t right. But I couldn’t figure out where it was all coming from. Well today, again I followed my intuition into the woods and now know the true reasons why I let fear and past worries lead my decisions and thought processes. How exhausting it is to follow the path that is not meant for you. How exhausting is that unease. I knew I had to get away and tune in to my SELF.

Well friends, how did you follow your intuition today? Who is speaking and who can you hear the loudest?

Thanks for joining. I’m here for you.

      1. How to treat myself and how to treat others in accordance with the natural order of life. I constantly consult the Tao-te-Ching and I-Ching for guidance on morality and spirituality. Thank you for that quote!
