Meditating a few minutes every day lets life flow easily and naturally and never lets me down. It’s a form of mindfulness, living from the heart moment by moment. There are gaps between consistent postings on theClosetAcademic.com. In the ‘real world’ that may disqualify me from being considered a viable investment or making the grade. The weather has been so beautiful lately that I can’t seem to bring myself indoors to get writing. When I do (almost) force myself to sit down, my hip starts acting up as if to say ‘Oh ya? So you think you are going to drive this ship of inspiration do you? Well, I’ll show you!’ I love these little reminders to allow myself to be in the moment and only do those things that feel right and kind and good for me. If that means playing in the forest for a few hours while deadlines loom then that’s what I’m going to do. Things always seem to work out better that way and all those (often self-imposed) demands inevitably find their way in getting met. And, the best part is, if things don’t pan out because of the honoring of myself then something even better manifests and is of even greater advantage for all concerned. Lightening up and getting to that higher place where everything always works out – aham brahmasmi baby! Like squeezing an orange and expecting orange juice, we can only offer to the world what we are inside. Meditate and tap in. It’s only natural.
