I love new beginnings, as you will know if we've met more than once.
Birthdays, mornings (all mornings!), new seasons, recalibrations, meditations, burning purifying essential oils in pots, cleansing stones for renewal... all of it.
Renewal -refreshment- is imperative to my well-being.
The week between Christmas and New Year's I spent pondering my revolutionary word, and righting my inner and outer worlds.
I'd been thinking that what I need most in my life, at this particular point, is just a tiny bit of Time. Space. Room.
I need space to pause, to take more care in my daily moments.
So that I can better move from react, to create.
I need room enough in my life that I don't feel harried, or a sense of urgency, but rather have a knowing that there is time for this, too.
I want to carry around with me a pocketful of Still, that I can fall into at any time.
I need a bit more Om in my life.
And I need easy access to that Om.
So which of these words would do?
How to best concentrate, to recalibrate, to often get into that deliberate (and liberating) space of pause?
There it is.
While I consider my auto-pilot these days to be a fair one--miles and miles beyond what it would have been were I not a seeker,
I also know that I am due for some considerable fine-tuning.
It's time for a shift.
So I prettify my home (I do love beautiful surroundings)... and I make room for my better, more considering and mindful Self.
I choose this tiny space of presence, calm, and choice--and all the beautiful things that can be found in this great and minuscule Pause.
I welcome it.
